The poll about the US election got my attention. It said that 70% of Republicans thought the result was “rigged”. Joe Biden didn’t win fairly.
I was stunned. Evidence has piled up that poll workers, supervisors and politicians responsible for elections were meticulous and demonstrated integrity. So … reality is being ignored by a lot of people.
Who are these folks?
I feel that consciousness is evolving on the planet. Maybe, though, it shows up as the jagged lines you see on stock market diagrams rather than a smoothly ascending curve. Clearly some folks aren’t participating in the emergence.
Somebody asserts something. Does the reasoning make sense? We’re intelligent people. We have the ability to analyze statements and sense if they ring true. Does it matter if the person asserting is male or female, young or old, Republican or Democrat? No, it doesn’t. The truth speaks loudly, as do lies.
What if my leader says X? Am I an underling, inferior in wisdom to the big guy? Do I really need to associate myself with someone powerful, in order to boost my flagging self-esteem? Do I need another human being to raise me up from deficiency to sufficiency? No.
Ouch. The mere thought of being surrounded by “yes” men and women makes me cringe. Will the group and the guru have me forget myself as cause?
Arms holding aloft signs such as “Just Say No To Creepy Joe” and “Stolen, Rigged, Fraud” remind me of other arms, ones that long ago were held straight out at a 45° angle. That didn’t end well.
I would like the 70% to be my friends but I wonder if that’s possible.
