In my desperation to fathom out what Donald Trump is doing to humanity, I began to search for wisdom to see the light, brightening the darkness that this man has brought to our world in the last few days alone.
I began to recall the wisdom of those before me, and I discovered two men- sages and philosophers- whose thoughts, wise and kind words, affected me, calmed me, removed my fears and gave me hope that, I must not despair, I must walk on.
Before, I share the gems I have discovered with you, let me begin by saying that I think it’s important not to frame the debate around ‘Trumpism’ as being 'Liberal' versus 'Rightwing', ‘Democrats’ versus ‘Republicans’, ‘Conservatives’ versus ‘Labour’, ‘Brexiteers’ versus ‘Remainers’ and so forth. This is a debate about fundamental values, about who we are, what we are and why we are. It is about our humanity and its about what makes us human.
It is about sacred versus sacrilege, beauty versus ugliness, darkness versus light, kindness versus hatred, hope versus fear, cooperation versus feral competition, selflessness versus selfishness, empathy and sympathy versus indiference and intolerance, truth versus alternative facts, bridges versus walls and such like.
It is in this light that I am sharing this blog with you.
