13. Daniel Ellsberg is right
It is very depressing to actually face just how bad the situation is here, and all that our government is involved in.

If you're a citizen of a totalitarian country, you can allow yourself to see exactly what's going on, and how bad it is, because you don't have any part in the decision making.

It's totally different in a democracy......... *WE* the people are responsible for what is going on in our name. To really look clearly at that would be not only depressing, but probably more than some people can handle. Remember, all their lives they've been fed the diet of "We're the best country in the world...."

To actually face the fact that not only are we NOT the best, but that parts of this country are downright evil, and furthermore, we all had a hand in making/letting that happen, is a serious step to take mentally and emotionally.

Remember opi suggesting that Repubs needed to have some 12-step program available to them after viewing F911?

Addiction withdrawal is heavy, and people don't usually do it willingly.
