Are you worried about the COVID variant?
Do you think the right wing Republicans are really out to cripple all government?
Is it inevitable a militant violent few will begin to execute politicians outside their narrow ideology?
It is, it seems, a dark time.
The worry, the thought, the inevitability all seem a depressing reality on the horizon.
Short term and long term prognoses fail the test of imagination.
A collective deflation of hope.
Those who pray are losing faith.
The rabid nihilists abandon charity.
