  1. You wouldn’t think in this day and time that you would have to tell people in this country to be committed to democracy. All too often those who work against democracy fail to see how they too will suffer from the side-effects such opposition brings. You don’t miss the water til the well runs dry! 😫

    1. Exactly, Kym!
      And they don’t see how low the well is running, either!
      That is why we keep working to remind ourselves to keep looking at things from all angles, and to teach others how to do that, and all of us to do it with empathy. Most of those working against democracy don’t even realize that that is actually what they are doing when they vote against their own interests, because they have not deeply analyzed all (or even most) of the sources of their (mis)information, or the bases for their (lack of) reasoning.
      Why education for all is so important, and the resources needed to make that education possible.
