Frightening [Nov. 26th, 2016|12:25 pm]
Tony Grist
I'm so tired of being told these are frightening times.

I lived through the Cold War. Now those were frightening times.

Or not.

Every generation thinks it lives in frightening times. What that means is it doesn't feel entirely in control.

What's the worst that can happen? We all die. Well that's going to happen no matter what. Get used to it.

Don't let the media scare you.  Remember they make their money by creeping up behind your chair and going, "Boo!"

There's more to life than politics.

Come off that news site.  Take a walk. Annoy the cat. Have a nice cup of tea.

What you said! As a white, heterosexual, well-educated female, I'm not directly scared for myself, but I do worry about many of my friends and I see the prospects for my grandchildren being more limited than they were for me or my children.

As we used to say back in the 80s in feminist circles, the personal is political. You can't just ignore it.
