As I've been saying throughout this blog and website, these two are, in fact, natural pairs while at the same time unnatural--they are aberrations, deviations that have become perversely normative. Jon Ronson, author of The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test, gets it exactly right in this wonderfully concise 3 minute interview.
I'm strangely, surprisingly, even joyfully proud of my city this morning. And not a little choked up.
We've rallied around justice and thrown out Donald Trump, a hate-mongering fascist. And we've done it peacefully. I'm proud of the people of Chicago, who came together at a moment's notice and organized so well. I'm especially proud of the passionate young organizers, especially the University of IL at Chicago students, whose Social Justice work is bearing fruit, a harvest of seeds planted by Jane Addams and others nearly 100 years ago.
God bless them, and Godspeed to us all...
