"Superstition, idolatry, and hypocrisy have ample wages,
but truth goes a-begging. "
- Martin Luther, c.1520
I found this quote somewhere today. It really seemed to sum it up. I used to be really into politics and activism. I still am. But I would be lying if I didn't admit that a huge chunk of motivation has eroded into the river. I try to amp myself up, saying it's a way of life. You just have to keep your head down and keep fighting the good fight. Don't think of the nonsense, just plug away. The madness is nothing new, right? I just have a simple question. Have the campaigning politicians done anything productive in the past year? Because I can't think of a more useless endeavor than these guys riding around in cushy seats, shaking hands, eating caviar, spewing lies, and spending tons of money. We could solve many a problem using your travel and event planning cash, gentlemen. The icing on this cake is the way they talk to us, like we shouldn't just laugh in their face. They spend our tax money. They rob us of our decency, our hard work, and maybe most of all, our logic.
Just fight the good fight.
