Problem is, this stuff is not election stuff. It's not some annoying inconvenient bug put in our heads every four years to wreck our day on the beach. Unlike other years and elections, we see an increasing division among people who are at odds as to how to solve the problems of the world. We're not talking just about the US of A, where their differences now split about 50/50. This is a global trend. People are at odds over the environmental issues, the refugee issue, migrant populations, political and religious beliefs, the growing gap between rich and poor, the re-emerging arms race, globalization of trade. Battle lines are clearly marked in the sand.
This won't simply go away in a few days. We can ignore it if we want, and that is okay. Our right. Others may wish to continue talking about it, looking to be part of the solution. That's okay too.
Enjoy life. It is a precious thing.
