How good is it that hardly anyone mentions the name Julian Assange, and when they do it's to dismiss him as a rapist? How good is Pine Gap? That thing sits in the heart of the country and it plays a prominent part in enabling the US to continue bombing brown-skinned citizens of other countries? How good is people voting against their own best interests? How good is it governing a country where people are so alienated now and so scraped into a fragmented corner that we can keep on doing what we like? How good is it being on the side of God's love. How good is my Pentecostal belief in a good who punishes with eternal hell? How much easier it is to flow my way through life believing the rain falls on the unjust and the election result was a case of divine providence? Sigh. It's so exhausting living now. Sometimes I'm quite convinced that the next version of everything is coming, is even now born and is running like an alternative economy hidden underneath the internets relentless propagation of the status quo. Other days I'm just not so sure. Guess it's hard to maintain hope with this boot in my face, a boot that, phew for Scott, means I'm simply out of favour with the Lord and must depend upon the church, not on my decayed society or, uh, say, government welfare as a way to keep our society running for everyone. Couldn't have that. Not when the eternally damned deserve hell on earth as well as the eternal thereafter.
