Hope, hate, and disruption

When we lost hope, we also abandoned principles of decency and justice. The banners of hate, complicity and racism are cynically being held up to wave over the new US of A. We are so used to strong-arming and speech that incites to anger that we have become compliant. The abundance of disinformation from the top…

Anagrams

Language, well at least until it succumbed to being written, was an unseen organism of communication.
