BHS Blogress Report: 2020, Week 19 – Damn Right I’m Angry

Week 19 – Damn Right I’m Angry

A few years ago, after the fraudulent election that gave us the Orange Menace, I decided to cut politics out of my life. Of course I would still vote, and of course I would still care about the issues, but I would no longer engage with what had become an almost entirely corrupt system. For the most part, I’ve been far happier since then, and I don’t regret my choice.

This current situation, however, has gone beyond politics. You know that old phrase “If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention”? That’s me.

My generation has already been crippled by 9/11 and its fallout, a completely unnecessary war, skyrocketing student loan debt, a financial recession (and a depression probably soon to follow), rampant and blatant corruption, two stolen elections and the two worst “Presidents” of all time… and now this. Two thousand Americans dying every day, from a crisis that easily could have been averted. Trump and the other scum like him have ruined most of the last twenty years with barely any consequences, and now they’re getting away with this. It makes me want to scream.

I try not to be judgmental. I try to let people believe what they want to believe. But when I see people, even members of my own extended family, trying to defend the horrific actions of human cockroaches who couldn’t give two shits about anyone that isn’t them… damn right I get angry. Everyone with any sense should get angry.

But part of the problem is, getting angry solves nothing anymore. The rich and powerful have insulated themselves against pretty much anything we can do… they arrest the protesters or ignore them altogether, they dodge jail time by buying their way out or rewriting the laws to suit their ends, they rig the elections, they control the media. Oh sure, every once in a while once of them slips up and gets caught… but there’s always another one waiting in the wings to replace them. We’re less than nothing to them now, and they’ve had decades of time to break the system so that they don’t have to answer to anyone.

I’ve had to come to grips with the fact that I am mostly irrelevant to the world at large, and will likely remain so. I’m so disabled that I’ll never have a “real” job. I don’t have money. I can’t travel, so I’ll never leave home. I’ll never have a romantic partner or a family of my own. The one thing that I can still do is rage against the dying of the light, casting my words and my feelings out into the void for as long as I can. You’re damn right I’m going to keep sharing anti-Trump content on my Facebook for as long as this madness lasts, and I don’t care who sees it. I may be a shut-in, I may be physically and emotionally damaged, but I can still be loud. No one’s taking that from me.
