Lately I've been thinking a lot about the implications of having a corporate business person such as Donald Trump as president, and while I have despised Trump's reality tv show and his arrogant mannerisms, I simply don't care enough about him or the politics to let myself be angered or saddened by his presidency. That is not to say I don't stand for equal rights and human decency, it's just that somehow, somewhere I still believe that life will go on, things will be ok and the people who want to make a difference in other people's lives by contributing positively to the world will always find a way to do so.
This morning while researching the TPP on Pinterest because a dry political issue doesnt have to be in black and white anymore, it's now displayed as a colorful concise infographic, the TPP a trade agreement that I was opposed to last year, that was passed by B. Obama's at the end of his term, that D. Trump repealed this week as one of his first orders of business. I have to say I'm extremely happy that this trade agreement was repealed and I won't hold my breath that D. Trump really has individual freedom in mind when drafting any new international plans, however change is afoot in the White House whether we agree or disagree.
Ugh then I saw that Trump passed the Keystone XL and Dakota pipelines and of course I was saddened to think that humans would again inevitably make mistakes that will contribute to the demise of our home and of course the living beings that inhabit it.
What does the physicist Lawrence Krauss have to do with all of this?
Just look at his quotes, the man obviously has it down, he can see everything with a wide angle lense.
It is my opinion that our mental health is more important than all of the critiquing, judging, outcasting, and debating people and their views. All the protesting for equal rights and against dehumization of females is not going to change Trump or his supporters because the protests are asserting an obvious set of rights and its sad that people stillhave to protest women and minority rights.
Lawrence Krauss had me spotting where I was at mentally, just thinking about the bigger picture. My place in the universe, the nature of things, and the fact that I'm not obligated to care about petty things, none of us are.
