Slap in the face or knee in the groin?
We have been “slapped in the face” so many times, its a wonder that we have enough nose left to pull our Covid-19 masks over.
While I try to consider it, I still can’t wrap my mind around the cruelty that some members of our species hold toward others of our species.
History is full of examples of widespread cruelty…think of how many heads were lopped off in the name of Christ during the Christian Crusades ?
That history is full of examples does not explain it however.
That is the question isn’t it? Are we worthy of this planet?
No, we are not.
I believe the question is, “Why do we allow ourselves to be ruled by greedy, self-centered fools?”
Deep down many are like their captors/tormentors, meaning if put in a similar situation, they would do the exact same thing. Some might blame ‘ego,’ others Darwinism, but the the result is the same. The structure of the government generally reflects the deeper nature of the collective, which includes greed and cruelty. There is probably a deeper psychology to it somewhere, I don’t know.
Good answer, LadyK! There was an old T.V. commercial that showed an Indian in a canoe rowing down a polluted river with tears in his eyes and that is exactly how my Native American spouse and I feel: WE DO NOT DESERVE THIS PLANET!
McConnell and his GOP ilk are employing a “slash and burn” battlefield strategy. They intend to leave this country’s economy in ruins hoping voters will blame Democrats for failing to repair the damage by the time the 2022 midterms roll around.
It’s like 2008 all over again.
They don’t seem to know what food and rent can cost. Next, they won’t understand what medical care in the U.S. can cost.
And demonstrates that humans have leaned nothing. It’s been the same since fire was discovered and the wheel was invented. If anyone thinks it will ever change, I have a bridge (in need of repair) to sell you.
I recommend the November Hightower Lowdown for those who could use a dose of hope for the future of humanity and the planet.
Humanity is more oriented toward helping each other than we may recognize-- after many too many years of Ayn Rand baloney.
** People! This is the best news we’ve heard in 40 long years!
Justice Democrats, Sunrise Movement Applaud Latest Economic Council Picks by Biden as 'Major Win’
by Julia Conley, staff writer
Progressives on Monday applauded President-elect Joe Biden’s selection of three new economic advisers who are expected to “prioritize the fight against structural inequality in our economy and democracy,” including a former economic policy director to Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Get you $5 to those Georgia Senate races and keep sending them!!! ^This is THEE big moment! The end of trickle down economics!**
And the irony is that America’s leaders love to proclaim that the United States is an exceptional nation. Yes, exceptional in not providing substantial economic relief for its citizens during a time of a pandemic which is standard practice in many if not most industrialized countries.
Plantation Massa mentality. Kneel to McConnell, obey.
