The reality is that we must make a radical effort to reenter into community with our neighbors, parishioners, coworkers, and the like.
As I thought after my ridiculous meltdown yesterday, I realized that I had already noted the path ahead before: the small path.
This isn’t even about preserving any particular form of government. It’s about preserving the very things that make us human and, more importantly, Christian.
We must, of course, still argue for the good and true. We can never cede that ground.

But without efforts to build up the people around us into prosperous, virtuous people, it will be a giant waste of time.
I admittedly have always desired political power, but, knowing this to be a dangerous desire in me, I have shunned political involvement for so long. But, there undoubtedly is a way to build good things at small levels.
I do not want an elected position, but it does seem clear that I should, as someone who has at least extremely small influence in the world, to work with the ASP for a true Christian Democrat party.
And so I think I should become more involved in that, and further involve myself in my community. I should join more societies, more groups. Engage in more works.
I should go to adoration, and pray more fervently. I need to root out the sin in my own heart, so I can help others with theirs.

Ok I especially don’t want to hear a fucking thing from you
It’s been hilarious hearing from Boeing, a defense contractor, Coca Cola, which funded hit squads against union leaders, and Disney, who has directly worked with China even with the genocide they are pulling off there, about the need to preserve democracy.
Seriously, big corporations, just stfu. Just sell your product if you’re going to be assholes.

Thinking about him Image
If he is still alive, I hope he is doing well.
The only men and women who are wise are the hermits, monks, and nuns who have eschewed all worldly things.

It’s cold and impersonal, and rarely works out
An industrialized process of rejection and miscommunication, forever
The internet is an all-consuming maw that will destroy all other forms of socialization. I hate it so.

Got a no from this job today and then this posted so yep, that’s it, I’m done.
Done trying. Done with it.
I regret my life’s choices so deeply.

These sorts of stories actually don't help make the case for Dr. Ford, much like the "boys will be boys" shit doesn't help Kavanaugh. There is one single question: Did it happen or not? Nothing else matters.
This is so frustrating because this will inevitably become a circus of "he did stupid thing x that isn't a crime" and "She did stupid thing y that isn't a crime" instead of "DID THE ACTUAL ALLEGED RAPE OCCUR?"
I keep reading how Kavanaugh apparently liked to drink a lot.

Well...so did I! I never did anything criminal though!

One thing about “letter of the law not spirit” is that when you read of the Pharisees, they weren’t using the letter to like be more pious, they were using it to get out of stuff
It was always like “don’t lift a hand to help someone bc its the Sabbath”.
It was never “you must obey this hard teaching” it was always “use this easy teaching to get out of a hard teaching”
