Wow…. Listening to Cenk Uygur on his Young Turks video show, and while I totally relate to his irate oration, I suddenly realized I was bothered by the bite of his ridicule.
As much as I, too, hate the behavior of those men and women in Congress, I know they are fucked little children, tortured when they long-ago expressed their natural, beautiful humanity. Disobedience resulted in more torture and sometimes murder, which impressed their young minds. Eventually, the children were rewarded when they finally, to save their lives, did what was despicable to them.
It began when they were very young. It was consistent, scientific, and ruthless – called MK Ultra. And now those grown-up tortured children create national policy out of terror.
They need the same sympathy I do.
And we need to quit pretending they represent us.
