Thanks for these insightful thoughts Ryan.

There is no question that Trump, et al, are issuing in a new era. ... 'Profit' will drive the mainstream corporate media like never before ... Still, there is Hope to be found in the emerging 'Resistance'.

Thoughtful and civil individuals can 'tune in' and 'tune up' their points of views by engaging with other thoughtful and civil individuals. Then, there must be deliberate and persistent acts of 'talking Truth to Power'. It won't be easy, there will be plenty of 'spin', from both sides. But, fundamentally, over the course of humanity's discoursing evolution, Good will prevail. Take heart.

Two voices to consider now: Zadie Smith's recent speech 'On Optimism & On Despair'. Here, compassion & empathy are hallmarks of an enlightened human being. http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2016/12/...

And, take in Keith Olbermann's 'Resistance' video series. He's sharp, provocative and stunningly eloquent. - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...
