A Nation Of Delusions

“No culture can live if it attempts to be exclusive.”

—Mahatma Gandhi

The absence of truth and reason, coupled with division, fear and hate, are the elements of the sand-filled foundation Trump is constructing to support his “New America.” A soulless America at the service of corporations, financial institutions, and insurance agencies --- one committed to White Supremacy, a unified culture, the destruction of all progressive thought and action, along with all hope for true equality of means, rights, and access to health care, education, or opportunity.

In contrast, several years ago, Jimmy Carter, reflected on the real America he saw ---”We have become a beautiful Mosaic --- a different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.” This is the real pluralistic, progressive America Trump is now white-washing with his broad brush of lies. Would that he might listen to Rumi and “Come out of the circle of time, and into the circle of love.”

Essential is the honest application of our Constitution and laws, coupled with new progressive leadership that would hold to Michelle Obama’s understanding, “We must speak the specific truth that will enable those who need to hear it.”

The old Democrat and Progressive leaders at all levels of government who for too long have governed by deception and self-interest must step aside so that the new voices of truth may be heard.

And we parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents who live here at Lakeside must share these truths in ways we understand with our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and friends of a lifetime. Therein lies hope, truth, and the future of humanity.
