A fighting chance

America in particular and the world in general is currently in a dark place. We aren't any less ignorant a race only that the ignorant have found a way to pool their resources through their social media echo chambers and personalized propaganda outlets which I hesitate to call news. This unification of the malevolent and dim witted has created a situation ripe for the taking by hate groups and lovers of all types of demagoguery. It has also invited the autocratic aspirations of those foolhardy enough to believe that any one savior could cure a nation's ills. It is a scenario where even a blithering idiot like Trump has yet more possibility to inflict damage.

We will be taking some unfortunate missteps going forward before things improve and if we can find a way to somehow make life better for the disenfranchised of this world, we may yet have a fighting chance.
