Please... [Nov. 9th, 2016|05:02 pm]

Please, fellow liberals, less of the illiberality.

Try to understand why people who aren't liberals have voted the way they did. No-one is without reasons. No-one has a monopoly on virtue.

And please stop accusing Trump voters of racism and misogyny. It may be true of some. But not all by any means. Don't demonise your opponent. It just deepens the division.

Understand that this election was between two of the least popular candidates ever. There were good reasons for not supporting Hillary. Very good reasons.  Many will have voted for Trump as the lesser of two evils.

And try to rein in the fear and hysteria. Fear is disabling. You're only hurting yourselves.

I can understand it; doesn't mean I have to LIKE it.

... and just because they thought he was 'the lesser of two evils' doesn't mean they were right.

It is neither fear, nor hysteria - more akin to resigned cynicism.

Resigned cynicism is fine.
