This Feels Like Desolation
I don’t mean to be negative but in all my years I have never seen the people of our country so lost. What passes for dedication and enthusiasm strikes me as rather pointless. Do we want to become something or stop being something.
Often in the past I’ve seen competing ideologies and demands that go along with them. Maybe each of us didn’t agree strongly with a given position but we did have a guiding light. We are in a political fight but it doesn’t feel uplifting or focused.
No one, even Trump, didn’t expect him to be president. Now the Republicans are devoted to his continuance. Seriously? This is the Republican Party?
Meanwhile the Democrats are raising flags of positions. But it feels like a milling small crowd. There are so many seeking the nomination for president. But I can’t focus the reason for most of them to be running.
But to me the issue isn’t political. It does not feel focused at all. Is there a lofty goal we should seek?
What Problems Need Solutions
Our economy doesn’t seem to be doing too badly. Except midwestern farmers are facing catastrophe, jobs are a problem in the “Rust Belt” just to name a couple of issues. Oh yes, and income inequality is escalating. So where do we focus? Is this an identity crisis or is there not a focus abroad to engage us? Or are there too many problems?
Again and Again
As I sit here writing this I keep having the same problem. I could probably construct a monumentally long list of issues with no cohesion. We just feel lost and without a strong leader. Oh no, I’m not saying we need an autocrat. We already have a would be autocrat at the head of our government and that self oriented dedication will not lead us productively forward.
Maybe the key issue is that there are too many unconnected problems. Each area of the country seems to have its own set of problems. What I’m not seeing is planning or even exploration of data to underlie planning. The thought of the word vision makes me want to laugh. The world seems to be struggling and I don’t know what it would take to bring us together.
Let me know if you have some magnificent vision. For now I’m going to simply move ahead piece by piece. I mentioned the death of community mental health and we could solve or at least improve things if we did evaluation and planning. But we’re not doing enough of that. Too many reasons and not enough devotion to focus. It just may be that what I’m feeling is the lack of commitment and focus issue by issue. We had strong commitments in the sixties. Let me try to focus my thoughts.
