I think that the most difficult word in all of the English Languages and other languages, for adults to understand is “no.”
No, Nope, Nada, No Way, Non, Nein.
may not, will not, should not.
we are all born psychopaths, wholly concerned with ourselves and it is very few people that ever learn to work and play well with others, co-operation, accommodation, inclusion and most of all, balancing interests.
We have seen over and over again, what becomes of societies that are dictator/personality cult lead, it is not conservative vs liberal.
It’s Self and In-group Loyalty to the exclusion and dominance of others.
Frankly, I do not understand the republic freaking out over Donald Trump as if he did actually embody the values of that party.
as offensive as he is, is he less scary than the religiously driven candidates, The Donald will at least make deals, which means negotiated compromise.
America elected Obama, and gained back a measure of World Stage respect that the 9/11 Aftermath under Bush the Lessor squandered.
The Nobel Prize Obama got really should have been returned, he won it for being elected and then he bombed and droned and cried over shootings at schools on American soil.
The American Republican Party has demonstrated that it is not even pretending to be concerned about it’s own base/grassroots….so far removed they are, caring only for CEOs of resource extraction companies and not their workers and not our shared environment.
