The year is ending badly for human rights and the environment and these things can't be blinked away. I tried some serious bug eyed blinking last night and it didn't work. Even Carl Jung knew there are limits to magical thinking.
The opposite of magic is just plain old perverse mischief–pissing in the shrimp dip, which is what I fear the Democratic Party has in store but it will be insufficient to the tasks ahead no matter the satisfaction.
The Dems must regain the upper hand on matters of local and regional progress. They should be reading Jay Walljasper's book “All That We Share: How to Save the Economy, the Environment, the Internet, Democracy, Our Communities, and Everything Else That Belongs to All of Us” rather than say, Joe Biden's presumptive memoirs.
This belongs to the category of morning thinking I like to call thoughts while shaving.
