Things are Bad
More reflections on the election will follow but for now here's something by Victor Frankl:
[I]n spite of our belief in the potential humanness of man we must not close our eyes to the fact that humane humans are, and probably will always remain, a minority. But it is precisely for this reason that each of us is challenged to join the minority. Things are bad. But unless we do out best to improve them, everything will become worse.
