“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”  ―  Voltaire,
"No wonder, in 2016 we got leadership not selected for competence but for deviousness. It seems acceptable that what’s incentivized in our system is spinning straight faced lies and propaganda and running cons that entrench the pathology of power"

We Are Governed By Monsters Now
The tRUmp administration's cruelty is not just deliberate. It is casual. According to CBP records, a girl and her father were taken into custody about 10 p.m. Dec. 6 south of Lordsburg, N.M., More than eight hours later, the child began having seizures at 6:25 a.m., and later died. Once a child is in custody, the child's health and well-being became the responsibility of the United States government. It became the responsibility of the United States government to monitor her for any sign of exposure. (Although it's very hard reading this story not to remember this video of Border Patrol officers pouring out water left in the desert for migrants by church groups.) More

'We’re better than this': Ex-Republicanand hero pilot 'Sully' Sullenberger enters political fray
Jessica Sutherland Daily Kos Staff 2018/10/31
In every situation, but especially challenging ones, a leader sets the tone and must create an environment in which all can do their best. You get what you project. Whether it is calm and confidence — or fear, anger and hatred — people will respond in kind. Courage can be contagious.

Today, tragically, too many people in power are projecting the worst. Many are cowardly, complicit enablers, acting against the interests of the United States, our allies and democracy; encouraging extremists at home and emboldening our adversaries abroad; and threatening the livability of our planet. Many do not respect the offices they hold; they lack — or disregard — a basic knowledge of history, science and leadership; and they act impulsively, worsening a toxic political environment. More

I just think that we've got to do better than that. We can’t refer to our opponents, political opponents on the other side of the aisle, as losers and clowns." More
