The left seems to be in despair these days, and I see more and more posts regarding this on social media. A liberal friend of mine, whose dad was a famous actor, put this rant on Facebook the other day:
“When I am not frightened by what I see happening in the world, I just feel incurable grief. How is it possible that with all of the abundance, wonder and beauty the earth has to offer, we have constructed a human existence that presents with such scarcity, dread and ugliness? This is no longer a question for the ages, but a pressing concern of existential urgency to us all. There really is only one question left to ask: Is there a way to set a course toward a new way of being human that will make it possible for us to save ourselves, from ourselves?”
It’s pretty sad when someone puts their faith in HUMANITY to save us. We can’t. We don’t have the power. Aren’t you glad? Can you imagine if WE were in charge of everything? Breaking news: People will always let you down. Even people you love. Even people of good character. It’s how you respond to the evil in the world that determines your quality of life.
