Wednesday morning sunrise run done, HOT! 78 degrees, 94% humidity, no breeze, a long hot summer looms ahead. During June, July, & August I pay for my pleasure.
Heard a news segment this morning about Germany’s Pirate Party. Thought it was interesting that the complaint against them seemed to be largely that they didn’t fit either into the Right or the Left. Our US political system has come to depend on the deep divisions, which are in fact relatively few, while ignoring the things we hold in common.
We would benifit, I think, from a close look at who profits from this division. Beyond the obvious perpetrators & profiteers such as Fox news or MSNBC, who stands to gain by keeping our attention on the things that divide us?
