Pep talk for those who need it - ready? -

Stop allowing the media to keep you in a state of panic. You aren’t helping anything by being overwhelmed & frozen in fear. Every election we’ve had since 2020 has shown Democrats as victors. It will take time to regain what we lost in 2016 but we CAN and

WILL if everyone pitches in and does their part. The knuckledraggers are fewer but louder. The media has its own agenda. That agenda is to maintain white supremacy & power & tax cuts. That’s it. Bc the people who own the media conglomerates are cishet white men. Turn off the tv. Give your mind & ❤️

WE have the power to change the trajectory of this country. So LFG. Rest when you need to. But cmon ya

Let the trump & co investigations work themselves out. They will & it will be glorious. But that shit takes

time. Focus on what you can control. We got this. Do not let the media keep you despondent. That’s what they want .. so you’ll continue to tune in .. so they’ll continue to make that money. We know the game by now. Play smarter.

This is all excellent advice.
Also, I find it helpful to listen to folks who have studied autocracies and understand how they get a foothold--as well as what we have to do to root them out.

I don't consider understanding history to be panic-inducing. I find context extremely important.

Agree! Am currently listening to Heather Cox Richardson’s Democracy Awakening for this very reason!

TY! I wish MO would get their shit together. It's beginning, but Republicans have a 20 yr headstart on destroying everything they can. I will never give up!
