Finding truth is so hard. It always has been, but at least we have so many more places to look today. On the other hand, it was harder to manipulate photos and film fifty years ago.

I have no idea who the good guys and the bad guys are. The Dems platform more closely matches my ideals, so I vote blue, but I do not really trust them. GOP talking points disgust me, which is another reason to push me left.

Are we living in a far more artful 1984? Is it all theatre? Are we constantly played for suckers?

Even if I knew that to be true, I’m going to continue to follow my moral compass and support the ideals I believe are important.
