Corinne, I hear you amidst the waves of head banging rolling in from all over the world. Not to forget my own headache. We (the progressive side of the citizens of the world) share that feeling, I assure you. That is all I, powerless and far away, am able to give you: I feel with you.

It is so overly clear what should happen in the world and yes, over there in your disunited country too. I do not have to repeat it, we both know. Values we share — altruism, solidarity, freedom constrained by decency and empathy, equality, sustainability — should be reinstated, our constitutions and institutions should be reformed. Me, myself and I should be changed into we, ourselves and us. We being understood on world scale. Value globalism, not economic globalism.

But first things first: Georgia’s senate seats have to be won. Neoliberalism has to be terminated and swapped for humanism. The ridiculous fear for Sovietlike socialism has to end. I am not sure Biden c.s. can do that. Or the 71 million that support a dangerous fool.

Friend of life and beauty and foe of spoilers of life and beauty. Golden marriage. Grandfather. Pianist and micro poet. Dutch, European.
