Today has been a day of reckoning and realisation. What we have strived for as human species to progress, has been stripped back. The lives of our POC, LGBT+, female, muslim, disabled friends are now more at risk than ever, and on an amplified platform.
I’ve seen a lot of blame allocation today which is a natural part of the grieving process – and yes, all of those parties are to blame in some capacity. It is fair that you have voiced this. The lack of human compassion shown through this period is shocking.
It’s now our responsibility to mobilise and take affirmative action. Free-thinkers, progressives, humanitarians, you can no longer sit back in silence.
For those of us who have been actively fighting – whether it is for the last nine months, or nine years. My tears today are with you too.
Just as the power of the White House is now no longer in the hands of a collective progressive mindset, but a singular destructive individual and his kkklansmen; is time for us as individuals to fight back with love, education, compassion and support across borders and nations.
I, along with many of you, was convinced that love would prevail and that the power of humanity that came to the surface on a global platform would be a source for further social evolution. This did not happen. We cannot allow this setback to reverse the freedoms that we have already set in motion.
Do I fear for an imminent apocalypse? Yes. Do I think the demagogue will actually make office in 70 days? No. Will he be be assassinated or arrested? Likely. Is the damage he has caused reparable? With time and love.
Your faithful servant.
