“The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed; the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.”
- Charlie Chaplin
It’s easy to feel despair right now. It’s easy to fall into that pit of hopelessness. Just watching the news today nearly made my depression ramp all the way back up to suicidal. I nearly fell back into that pit.
But I am begging you, on my hands and knees, to not give up. They hissing and spitting and crying because WE DID IT. We won another victory. They’re losing ground and they can’t stand it. Yes, these people are a problem, yes we should be worried, but for all that is good, do not release your hold on hope. It’s gotten us this far.
Please, hold on. Please keep fighting. We have a lot of battle left to go but we have to keep fighting for it. Fascism is losing right now, but it will only keep losing if we keep fighting.
We have to believe we can win.
Because we can.
We’ve proven it twice over.
Fuck them. Fuck these domestic terrorists. Today is a victory, if however small.
This isn’t a political issue. It’s a human issue. It’s a basic decency issue. It’s an issue of right vs wrong.
Please, don’t give up hope.
