My belief

The one thing in this world that I truly believe is the truth always wins in the end. Yes it is true that a lie will be half way around the world before the truth gets it's pants on, but it does get it's pants on and when it does it spares no one. The end for trump and his gang of enablers will not be pretty. Trump started this and it will end with him.

It was long time before people came to understand who what Hitler was, but it did come and the end was not pretty.

that there is often an enormous cost, in terms of human lives and livelihood, over the sometimes long period between which ungood rises and good prevails.

It feels like we may be at the ungood’s peak provided we don’t flinch either with our will or our aim and we take the shot while we can.

and think of this often. If I'm not wrong both WWII (US involvement) lasted 4 years as did the US Civil War. Of course, the evil/s lasted far longer.

really nice!

I, too, want to believe. Some days I'm all in. Others, it's a struggle.

What I am sure of is each of us knows in our heart whether we have been honest and lived with valor and integrity. Maybe not in every moment, but on the whole.

I’m putting that on something somewhere.

What troubles me is the other side can read that and draw the same inspiration regardless of how antithetical their thinking is to its meaning. ... Sigh.

And visionary.

My only question is will the truth get its pants on in the coming years, or decades?

for supply side and trickle down economics to finally meet its demise -- and I hope the .1% don't have a new and better idea for them.

Economic feudalism just keeps renewing itself.
