It’s also why I don’t look to politics or politicians for solutions. Never found one that suited me.
I scribbled. As you can see, most candidates are Right-wing authoritarian,
Right wing authoriarian is standard USA.
Joe Biden is right in the middle of right wing authoritarian.
Now, going way back to 2008, you can see Joe Biden has shifted from just right of center to middle of the right.
In fact, the Democratic party as a whole has taken a shift right from 2008.
In fact, the Republican party as a whole has taken a shift to the right from 2008.
You simply don’t find anybody much that can be really called “Left” for 2020.
The Democratic party is right-wing. There’s traditionally almost NO DIFFERENCE between Republican and Democrat in the USA.
That’s why so little changes.
Responsibility is my #1. I don’t expect it out of others but I hold myself to what matters to me.
Ship’s in constant flux, phasing in and out of existence. It’s never been solid. Can’t be.
18 yr old smartass me would say:
“If you’re so tolerant, why won’t you tolerate the intolerant? Maybe it’s THEY that are tolerating YOU”.
I was a smartass. Didn’t actually mean it but I lost friends anyway which was alright. Good lesson learned.
Anyway, basic human rights is where my line is drawn.
