I suspect most of us have spent a good bit of mental energy over the past year railing against the machine. The political machine that is. “Why doesn’t he/she get it? How can they possibly think that?” And so on. Upon what we rail against we place moral labels: sin, foolishness, greed, fear, willful ignorance, baseness, bigotry, brokenness, selfishness. We rail against it because in us there is a sense that “this should not be so.” We want to think such foolishness is not normal or germane to us as individuals or society.
