Brilliant post. I agree 100% with your assessment of the political situation we've seen develop since the GOP rebranded itself as the Tea Party, and
hoodwinked the general population. My politics-inflicted pain began in the spring of 2003, when I realized that the tough Iraq invasion talk wasn't
talk, and that those idiots were actually going to occupy a country that couldn't even put a fighter jet into the air, and that the entire nation
actually believed that the invasion was due to a building threat from that country. Since then, it's been a complete nightmare of carefully
developing official insanity. I also thought that Obama's election indicated that the spell had finally been lifted, but then the bizarre Tea Party
thing got launched, and we're right back to the madness again.
Recently, I've discovered that we are not the finished products that we think we are. Meaning that what we experience in this life is important, but
it's no more than part of what it takes for each of us to successfully craft our permanent selves. Sadly, most people are crafting some seriously
twisted permanent selves, and while this can cause those of us who are affected by the maliciousness of these people, in the end, they'll be the ones
who suffer with what they've created of themselves. I'd rather be abused by them than to be them. That much I know for sure. If those folks knew
what they're prepping for themselves, they'd be in full panic. It's hard to stay mad at someone who's going to have it so bad eventually.
As far as wealth and privilege, we all are on a train that's taking us to the same place. Those with nicer seats, or even sleeping cars, will have to
walk away from them when the train stops, and frankly, I'm fine with standing for the ride. The other people who are standing with me are plenty
entertaining for the most part.
I'm not sure if I'm an optimist or pessimist. I don't think I take this whole thing as being the end-all of conscious existence. I see it as just a
phase that we all have to go through, I guess. I try to craft as good a version of me as I can with the time I have to do it, and that makes the rest
of it a lot easier to deal with.
