I Believe This is the Last Gasp

Maybe I am too much an optimist — but I think what we are seeing is the last gasp of a dying animal — and though painful, it’s a good thing.

Go out with a bang or a whimper?

Let’s face a couple of largely indisputable facts, shall we?

The end will be a new beginning

The Democratic Party is massively imperfect. Joe Biden is not a candidate for President to spark a lively debate or generate excitement. But he is the new center-right — because the political right in the United States has strayed a long, long way from center.

I believe this is the last gasp

Why do I believe this? Because I believe that the majority of people in this nation are truly reasonable people. I think more people believe in logic, reason, and science than don’t. When all is said and done, I think people care more about other people than money, power, and similar artifices.

“A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.”

But I do know that YOU are a person. You can be smart. That means you can choose for yourself to be reasonable, logical, and to question what you see of reality versus the false narrative.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Let’s adjust that to be more relevant to now:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL are created equal, that they are empowered with certain essential Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, Equality, and the pursuit of achievement.

Does that resonate with you like it does for me?

I believe

This time period is surreal. There is so much going on — and we are utterly inundated and overwhelmed with information. But I hold to the idea that it is the last gasp of a dying animal. The death of this animal has it thrashing about and causing a lot of damage in its wake — but die it will.
