Hi everybody

I took some time off because I had to deal with my "existentialist" problem. Someone posted something similar on this board a few days ago; I guess a new awareness is painfully emerging. In my case: I can keep hating trump for 3.5 more years non stop, multiple times a day as it is impossible to open an online publication without seeing the destruction that he imposes on the world. Or I can try to find ways to bypass him and push towards my vision of a better future. I know that many US states and cities are now developing their own processes to pursue their objectives without and even despite the federal government. Of course there is the wonderful Macron, elected by the no less wonderful French electorate. Before France, there was the Netherlands and Austria. And there is the equally wonderful Trudeau whose approach to trump's government is to bypass it: The Trudeau government deals directly with US cities and states as much as possible. The whole trump thing looks like a blocked artery that other blood vessels nearby are trying to bypass and compensate for.

I welcome any thoughts from other posters here as to how to remain positive as a group while pursuing our goals for the environment, human rights, for healing the income discrepancies that threaten our future (brilliant answer from President Carter about the rise of trump and authoritarianism at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhebmG148Zo)
