Written in 1939, it's a book that explains fascism in what I think is a very straight forward and definitive way. Sure enough, you can open it to almost any page and it reads like a modern day newspaper. It jumped off the shelf at me a few weeks ago in a used bookstore. I've tried my best to not let the fear machine infect me. I've tried to shy away from political posting and focus on my work and helping those around me but the situation is getting impossible to ignore. What happened with the press today is really scary. What they're doing to women, trans people, immigrants, Muslims, Native Americans, and pretty much everyone else who doesn't fall into the category of "rich old white man" is terrifying and I'm sick with disgust. Whatever ideology motivates the type of person that is in power right now is truly beyond my comprehension. I don't want to be ashamed of my country but I am right now. Resist this bullshit with every bone in your body. Spread love and friendship. Do what you were put on earth to do. Be a better person. Help someone less privileged than yourself. These are the things I'm telling myself. I'm open to any and all ideas about what we can do to get through this shit together. Above all, remember to LOVE!!!
