It was the worst of time or was/is it the best?
Watched a little of the ‘”60s” documentary on CNN yesterday, it reminded me of the amazing decade that it was… but, we are now in a similar ‘chaotic’ time..
what can i surmise from all that has happened in my 63 years? well,
to use a literary quote: ‘IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES’…..The possibilities of 2016, excite me (the amazing rise of Bernie Sanders, our first ‘socialist’ candidate in a long time..). but, i am also scared… as the far Right, essentially, the GOP, but just as bad, the Corporate DNC…leave us up in the air… will there be, can there be real change? to come? we need a Bernie Sanders at this stage…. I can only hope
from Truthdig Trump’s fascism
WE DON’T ,, OR CAN’T SEEM TO LEARN FROM HISTORY… “As was the case with Hitler, Trump appeals to a substantial number of angry people who cheer his call for making outcasts of members of a particular religion. At first scorned by decent people, as was Hitler, the presidential candidate now is enlisting a growing number of angry and scared Americans by promoting hatred of a religion and an ethnic group. That’s what Hitler did in regard to the Jews.
With Trump gaining strength, he may be on a path to the Republican presidential nomination and, if things continue to go his way, the presidency. Then, say farewell to our democracy. The bleak prophesies of novelists Sinclair Lewis and Philip Roth about a fascist America could come true.”
