In a world that seems to be going to hell in a hand basket, fueled by hatred and helped along by the capacity for a nuclear holocaust and destruction of environmental sustainability, what do you do?
You can wallow in rage, hatefulness, and vengefulness, wrecking your own mental health and hurting people around you, or
You can join with like-minded individuals who value love over hate, peace over war, compassion over vengefulness, justice over exploitation. You can link up with people who can foresee what will happen to enormous segments of life on earth if greedy exploiters of its resources and promoters of divisiveness are not reined in.
For those of you open to doing something to confront the wages of greed and the destructive isms of the time, one movement you might consider joining is the Indivisible movement.
One of the things I like about the movement is its emphasis on stopping Trump’s platform, the specific things he and his henchmen want to do that will make life worse for millions of people and the earth on which we live.
A lot of the energy in the current resistance movement targets Trump the man, the symbol of the greediest of the one percent of the one percent; the icon for the dispossessed, the disillusioned, and the distraught; the reincarnation of the cataclysmic fascism of the last century.
What I value in the central Indivisible credo is its emphasis on stopping inhumane, unjust, and destructive policies—executive orders, laws, and dis-regulations that hurt innocent people and the environments in which most people struggle to survive. If you can improve the policies, the procedures, the ethics, then individual representatives of greed and destructiveness can do less damage.
