I’ve noticed that, more than at any time since I began to blog about four years ago, there are too many compelling topics to write about rather than too few. Each day I have to drop dozens that interest me, in the name of having a life.
It hasn’t always been so frenetic, but it is now. Things are happening so fast and so furiously that people have no time to process the amazingly complex issues involved, and the radical changes being proposed and in many cases implemented.
The frantic pace is supposedly happening because we are in crisis mode. But I’m certainly not the only one to wonder whether the sense of crisis is being purposely escalated in order to speed up the passage of controversial and “transformative” legislation. And to be very wary of where this “change” is really leading us.
