And it happened again. Is this world going totally, furiously, unstoppably mad? I remember a few months ago I went to sleep with the solid thought in my mind, that Brexit just couldn’t happen. That it wasn’t really an option, you know. I was so naive.
The following dawn was devastating to read the news. The half of the British people made a shockingly strong statement and this is exactly what happened now again in the US. A new, this time American statement, that they want a massive change.
I have no doubts that the American democracy is still going strong, actually what could be a stronger statement that most of the people elected this unbelievably unprepared man? (If you’re wondering, I’m trying to be politically correct, respecting all the votes, although this are not the exact words which take place in my mind).
Anyway, I must believe, he’ll either grow up to this responsibility, or the Congress will be strong enough to keep him on leash. I must believe something good follows too. If nothing else, we’ll pay the price but learn from it.
But again, even though I’m trying to be more optimistic, it’s still difficult to believe. What’s the most hard to process is, we’ve stepped into this new world of uncertainty, when anything or the total opposite of that can happen. When feelings like fear, anger and despair easily overwrite the rational mind. When (hard?!?) Brexit and president Trump can happen.
I’m hoping it was a strong enough statement again, and central, liberal, labour, democratic, social politicians – whatever you call them -, will hear the signs of despair, learn from it, and will change in order to fix the balance of the world. Because we need that balance, stability and trust more than anything.
Ps: Probably tomorrow will be better and will be back with a more cherish topic, life goes on after all. 🙂
