While I haven’t updated this since I’ve started, I’ve had quite a realizations since then.
We are looking, more than over, for a realistic worldview. Throughout most of human history, “realistic” meant much less pessimistic compared to the prevailing wisdom. Only recently – and accelerated by social media – has that dynamic flipped. Being cautiously optimistic is not only frowned upon, but almost non-existent from leading national figures for a least half a decade. Not only does it make good political sense to move into this under-served sector, but I believe morally and practically as well this needs to enter our political conversation.
I will hopefully update soon. This is very therapeutic, if nothing else. Keep your head up and always think critically.
