How I wish I could be here to attend this. 😦

But I am being forced to vacate this country. I wonder who is the beneficiary of this sacrifice of my values that is being demanded of me? I can’t think of anyone in particular… it’s like all of AMERICA, the collective glob demands the sacrifice from me, but none (no individual person in America) really will experience consciously any kind of benefit from it.
A sacrifice being demanded for its own sake – worse than altruism, which is a sacrifice for others (probably a post for another time).
