Politics as a Blood Sport: Where is Our Leadership?

Do you feel uncomfortable with the state of today’s electoral debate? Well, so does Grandma, but she does more. She gets to the bottom of what’s happening. She confronts our mindless nostalgia for a “great” past that never existed. She shows us how our feelings of powerlessness are making us want to bully somebody, and she helps us see ourselves as the spectators in the Coliseum watching the Gladiators fight it out while ignoring reality as Rome burns. She gets to the core of our own consciousness, which is birthing this mindless election, which feels like a spectator sport but can have devastating consequences. Grandma offers the kind of leadership our political candidates can’t or won’t provide. She confronts U.S. Watch this through. You won’t be sorry. And pass it on!
