Let's define "shit" as anything you think it is. For me, it is the financial mess, the outright plundering by the 1% over the 99%. It is the way we are fed Orwellian bullshit when we have real needs - like the "healthcare" voodoo that we got when what we wanted was single payer. It is the ongoing wars, even as we wind one down we're sharpening our knives to start a new one in a neighboring country. It is our near total abandonment by those we elected to represent us. It is the ever shrinking middle class. It is the lack of jobs. It is the lack of a sense of security, not against manufactured boogeymen, but against more basic threats, like cold and hunger and disease.
That's some of the shit soup to which I allude.
Is it deeper today than in years past? Decades past. Centuries past? Or is it simply a common perspective due one standing in it, and therefore not unusual at all?
