I’m feeling deeply cynical about the election at the moment. And not in the way you might think if you’ve followed me on the Internet.
“You’re afraid Trump might win,” you’re saying.
Yeah, that. But mainly feeling we’re like turkeys voting for who gets to be the farmer. There certainly are real differences between farmers. One of them will keep our enclosures cleaner than the other, give us better food, and treat us kindly.
But either way, Thanksgiving will be something we as individuals will not be thankful for.
P.S. I shared this metaphor with a friend who said it’s bullshit. “We could be in fucking Syria,” he said.
