The new normal

Normalization is real. I watch it happening to myself. Every terrible policy the plutocrats promised has become the new baseline. Every subsequent development toward implementing those policies is but an incremental step toward what we have already accepted as given, and so does not seem as outrageous. And so we become desensitized to injustice. We lose perspective. We lose ourselves.
