I’ve never gone to Democracy Now.
Do you consider it a good website ?
As for your reply ~
I’ve become aware of something called “moral injury” - not the same as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Your description fits with ‘moral injury’ - i.e., we know what’s right , wrong and what is unfair and unjust - it’s inbuilt - part of our DNA if you like. We are seemingly powerless to change what’s wrong - and necessity and the will to live - “striving to survive” in the words of Kane of Kung Fu fame - is with us all - all the time.
So we do what little we can - but conceptually, we know, or think - it is not enough.
To use an analogy, being once a pilot - we are in either a spin or a spiral dive - something has to be done in either case - or gravity takes all.
I can’t figure out democracy at all.
Half don’t vote.
Thomas Piketty in his book “Capitalism in the Twenty-First Century” makes a solid case that for the bottom half of society - they are virtually without wealth in the conventional money sense.
Is this the same half that does not vote ?
In any case - being embedded since birth, literally, in this money society - being bombarded by spin doctors on every conceivable subject and level - well - this is what you get - dysfunction along a path to death - spiritual, moral, and soon, perhaps physical.
If we all don’t “know” that - we at least sense it - something is drastically wrong.
I sensed it even before I became a man - and it never leaves you.
The best you can do seems too little.
I’d like to hear more of your thinking.
