If Trump’s Antics Fail and Biden Becomes President, Then What?

The problem hasn’t been solved, only postponed.

What can we do?

Don’t you ever wonder why it’s so easy to vilify the people who don’t support your political party or ideals? Why it’s so easy to hate them? To despise them? To wish they’d all just go away?

Your responsibility as a citizen

What no one likes about democracy is that it forces upon us a weighty responsibility. What is that responsibility? To educate ourselves on what’s best for society and to have difficult conversations with people with whom we disagree.

  • If you’re sharing partisan rhetoric on social media designed to enrage the “opposition”, you’re part of the problem.
  • If you’re not trying to understand why the other side believes what they believe, you’re part of the problem.
  • If you think your side’s perspectives are infallible, you’re part of the problem.

Following my curiosity and hoping it will lead me to wisdom. I write about science, meditation, and spirituality.
