        I do what I can. I also try to share both liberal / conservative views. My goal is to encourage dialog on topics. I also like the idea that we are seeing candidates, maybe viable candidates, who are not “business as usual” on BOTH sides.

    Yeah, it’s pretty pretty scary. Keep up the good fight, Robert. Thanks for your comment.

    This snapshot of current events, which is indicative of prevailing trends, provides some insight into the growing pattern of nihilism being witnessed throughout the world. People, particularly the young, tend to retreat into a virtual fantasy world of their own creation when the real world becomes too painful to endure. I can think of nothing more worrisome than a civilization on the brink of environmentally-induced political upheaval and having societal disengagement propagate through its populace.
