Wow. These are my feelings exactly. I didn’t realize it until you so succinctly articulated it.
I feel like a lot of this political stuff is being blatantly orchestrated right now to generate energy. I feel like something is just trying to generate fear to perpetuate the never-ending cycle you described above.
The best thing any of us can do is not feed into it. I have pretty much removed myself from social media because, it in particular seems to run off negative energy.
