I’m growing a bit paranoid about the whole process of democracy as it is practice nowadays. I think it’s primarily paranoia that obscures the process, makes it unclear & unintelligible which path is the way to move forward. One wonders if there Is an intensional conspiracy to confuse? Is each crisis sadistically, callously designed to bid for time before the lights turn on so the Rats can safely scurry to their holes? I think it’s an act of betrayal to intentionally blur, muddle, complicate, muddy, cloud, befog, obfuscate rather than clarify the real implications of obstruction of justice and collusion with an enemy of democracy. for me, day after day, it’s a challenge to resist the bewilderment, depression, feelings of powerlessness and betrayal. I feel like I can relate to what it must have been like to endure the blitzkrieg of the second World War only the bombs are psychological rather than physical. I feel that overwhelming personal and political crisis applied day after day month after month as constant bombardment of toxic stress is reaching unprecedented National and global bewilderment, mystification, puzzlement & confoundment!! Complexities too numerous to be able to process properly can interfere with one’s ability to make good decisions about maintaining one’s well-being. When one is constantly perplexed, confused, baffled and befuddled one can lose the ability to discern fact from alt fact. I find I am constantly being emotionally wounded and it is affecting my sense of well-being and my mental health.
