There have been several articles posted about the anger and depression affecting many of us in the current political morass. Lots of both, but no effective solutions are offered. 

Most of us seem to be waiting for the white knight who can lead us out of this dead-end. Or, better yet, a spontaneous  uprising to knock over the tables in the Gambling Den of Washington and replace them with a new, New Deal.

With all my anger, I am no better than most of us.

This article doesn't provide a solution. Instead, it it offers knowledge, in Review of Pankaj Mishra's book: The Age of Anger: A History of the Present. The reviewer doesn't promise an easy romp thru a throw-away self-help book, BTW.

He does hold out the hope of reaching an understanding of the problem - Which might lead to a logical solution to the conundrum of: Where are we going; How do we get there?

It would be so much easier to Comment on a Link I've posted, if the info that it was published was actually sent. I had to use Duck-go-go to find it, as I haven't received a Newsletter since Sat. a.m. I often am the last person rather than the 1st to see the things...

With the Lava flowing over Leilani Estates, local refugees fleeing Pele's housekeeping, and trying to provide shelter for displaced pets, the laid-back image of Island Life is getting distorted by reality - just like that of the rest of the World.

The article caught my eye because of the many others that Lila, myself, and others, have been posting trying to get some kind of realistic efforts going to motivate people to take control of our Government instead of handing it to the Thieves and Fascists. As far as I can tell we are 'preaching to the Choir.

I have to wonder how Lenin, Trotsky, and the handful of dedicated Revolutionaries in Russia, managed. They were certainly not living in the best of times - Nor was it easy to travel and communicate across all of Europe during WW1. Now we have all the tools of the Media World at our finger-tips and cannot Organize Kittens around a bowl of milk!

We do live in interesting times!
