"and I know, if I'll only be true to that glorious quest

That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest"

For a long time it has seemed that Fear is the great God of our time.

Nobody would claim to worship It
But everyone's doing Its bidding.
Its minions include Greed Hate Deceit Doubt and Cruelty, among others.
It gets inside your head and lies to you.
It evolves as you do, getting increasingly clever at tricking you, using the information in your own brain, to scare and control.
For me, vigilance is crucial. Fear dominated WAY too much of my life.

Fear will use the voices of those we love, inside our own heads, to scare us. It will use our own most current and enlightened insights to scare us.

Fear ITself. Not the stuff it tells you - but the Fear iself is the enemy.

While healthy fear & authentic danger will usually trigger action for survival, this Fear will paralyze, confuse, discourage. I recognize it by how it makes me feel -- not by what it says -- for it often makes a good sensible case for Itself.

And moreover, I've have learned it is possible to JUST SAY NO TO FEAR & its minions.

When that icky feeling knocks on my door I am very fim in my response now: "you are not welcome in my house."

Egomania is nearly universal. Ubiquitous, insidious.

It's true of moderate, "sensible" ones too, as much or more than the blatant ones like Trump.

Not unlike spiritual renunciates who advertise their status with robes and shaved heads:
"i have renounced the world and its egomania; i am more humble, more enlightened than the others"

or the apolitical who look down upon those seeming obsessed with the world of politics::
"how deluded they are; how much wiser am I"

or the fearful ones who dare not make a wave, or ride one: "how sensible I am; how practical; how much better am I than the others!"

means only a little, not very much. A small bit.

One doesn't become honest in order to get votes

Probably most of them are in old age homes.

Or gone to meet their maker.

Bill comes w the wife

There is plenty of reason to bring him and his history into the calculation. Think the opposition disagrees?
