I've been politically... 'outspoken'... the last decade or two. I have an opinion, and I've been damned happy to share it with almost anyone.
The last two days, that seems to have fallen by the wayside. Our situation, as a nation, as a world, and as a species... no longer impresses me as 'politics'. That road appears to be at an end, at least to my jaded sensibilities.
Republican? Democrat? Socialist? Imperial Democracy? Constitutional Republic? I no longer see the dividing lines, even as a blur.
What is becoming clearer each day is the direction we are headed as a nation, and as a world society.
I don't think this is going to be pretty.
