I think the problem with our society is we get amnesia too easily. Certainly that helped Bush’s rise in 2000 or the Republican “Revoluton” in 1994 or the Tea Party rise in 2010 and later Trump in 2016. The past gets overglamorized by people who never had to live it or if they did live have an agenda in wanting to ignore the worst parts of it. TBH I’m optimistic about defeating Trump next fall. But where I’m more uncertain is preventing this from happening again. The next Democratic president is going to have their hands full. And note to progressives, we’re not going to get all we want done. Some things may not be accomplished. That doesn’t mean we sit on our hands in 2024 and 2028 and let a right wing asshole take advantage of disappointment and give us something worse. Would a President Clinton have solved our societal problems as of right now? No but she would be addressing them in a way Trump certainly isn’t doing.
