Define insane. When one realizes that the so-called government is a sham and it only serves to make millionaires and billionaires wealthier, what does the word insanity mean in context? Elections are only held to provide the proles with an illusion of choice. Once that is understood, one can get on with living because any pretense of change is seen for the charade it really is.
Grief requires us to know the time we're in. The great enemy of grief is hope. Hope is the four-letter word for people who are unwilling to know things for what they are.
Our time requires us to be hope-free. To burn through the false choice of being hopeful and hopeless. They are two sides of the same con job. Grief is required to proceed.

I’m curious – who else do you “realize” is insane? Me, I’ll happily plead guilty, I am crazy, nuts, marbles long gone, a few fries short of a happy meal. That said, I am not doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
See, this society is way fucking crazier than I am. It, in willfull ignorance, driving itself into a dystopian future. The pandemic will help that along, given the incompetent leadership – and in time, the results of climate change will do far, far worse.
So, yep, I’m crazy. I’m also not going to support these rich assholes who are killing the poor and the planet.

If you give a man enough rope, it will be six inches too short. This is not the nature of rope- it is the nature of man.

I do not understand. Please elucidate.

Nope. The assholes who voted for Trump got what they wanted, the rest of us got stuck with him.

A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims . . . but accomplices.
~ George Orwell
I thought this is where the OP was going. No? Americans are not victims. Neither Democrat nor Republican. Both are seeing the results of what happens when we allow money to be considered speech. Both sides lack the courage of true conviction because the leaders of both sides are corrupt. Ergo, Americans can hardly be considered “victims” when they continue to choose evil leaders, no matter how “lesser” that evil may be. They are accomplices.
