Elections

It’s hard to ignore the insane election race underway in the US, awash in ‘dark money’ and over-the-top rhetoric. I can’t say how I’d vote, if it was my choice. But I do have this bit of general advice for all elections:

As long as you vote for the lesser of two evils, you will always have an evil government.

Also: I know there are billions being spent on advertising and propaganda. But you don’t actually have to listen. You could use your own eyes and ears and brain. You could look around, investigate, educate yourself. You could think for yourself. Propaganda only works if you’re too lazy to seek other sources of information.
