1. My first reaction to this

is I can't absorb it; process it all.

This isn't to say that any of it isn't important or accurate or anything like that. It is that with all the craziness that is going on at all layers and directions we need to start working on focusing on issues and moving beyond just the outrage.

When I see these lists of all the outrages, I am at risk of being so outraged that I feel that there is nothing I can focus on and do and will just resign my self to despair.

This is not to discourage people that feel the need to express themselves on all of these things, it is just to respond to those that may feel overwhelmed and that they need not feel that way. That the real thing they need to do is to pick those things that they feel moves them and work on them.
