why it’s not hopeless
by Andrea Elizabeth
The most popular reaction to the debates and this year’s candidates is that they’re both horrible. Finally people have given up the idea of a utopian glorious leader. This is the year of the inglorious. Perhaps previous politicians, like the Wizard of Oz, have been better at hiding their ingloriousness. What will happen now that the curtain has been removed? Maybe small communities will step up and take care of their own lives? That is if they don’t give up, plug into virtual reality, and float away into nihilistic gnosticism.
