Totally agree. We live in a world that no on could have comprehended 100 years ago. In all of the issues that we are currently facing, I am done getting caught up in the fray with all of it. You do what you think is right, and I'll do what I think is right.We live in a time not many of us ever expected. 24 hour news cycles, theories and conjectures that bounce around the world at internet speed, hyper politics, and big monied interests. I think these we can agree on. Not going to touch on conspiracy theories.
Up until the American Civil War, most Americans never traveled more than 10-20 miles from home. And now you can watch a Webcam set up an the other side of the planet.. My son just returned from Texas, and he, my wife, and I were talking about Colorado. The diversity of the USA in landscape, demographics, and experiences is what makes us unique as a nation.
Not sure of the point of this ramble. Maybe just tired of seeing complex issues reduced to memes.
This was just a random set of thoughts rolling through my head today
I think we can all agree that there is misinformation out there from diverse sources. I also refuse to believe that most people are so radical in their opinions that they refuse to be a neighbor to others. As usual, the loudest and squeakiest wheel gets the most attention.
I think between the pandemic, political turmoil, and issues with race that we have seen the importance of taking care of your community. Raise up your children right, build a loving home, raise a big garden, support your local businesses and community, and treat others as you wish to be treated. Almost like a call to "de-centralize".
