71. What's going to rise from the ashes won't be the imaginary Phoenix some expect.

We're being shoved to the right drastically now. People will willingly settle for less progressive ideals, so long as they're not so extreme. That's how modern people reason things out in their minds.

This isn't a legendary turning point, it's an epic setback we're all going to pay for for the rest of our lives while we fight to regain ground.

On edit: Your words were painfully in the wrong place at the wrong time here. That you couldn't see that saddens me, and makes me all the more aware of how out of touch the 'destroy the country, so it can be rebuilt into our idealized version' is. Many people begin to feel beaten down, overwhelmed, distraught, and generally unable of processing events. Their health is literally effected by these events, and their ability to be enact their civil duties are, too.

I get very upset when I see this BS collateral damage for the cause mentality.
