Dread

I'm feeling dread and despair as I watch the Republican fascist agenda unfold. Muzzling the USDA and other government agencies from talking to the public. Dismantling the ACA by every sideways tactic possible. Immediate international gag rule from even mentioning abortion as a healthcare alternative. Introducing federal anti-abortion legislation. Leaving the UN? (Haven't heard if that actually passed.)

Here and there we hear sparkles of abusive legislation blocked. In Arizona, Ethnic Studies have not been defunded. Rah. But each fight is so hard-won, and there are so many of them.

How are we going to survive? How is this happening so fast? People keep saying trash fire, dumpster fire. It feels like the world is on fire. Something will survive, something will grow back, but not necessarily us or anything resembling our world as it is now.

Right after the election I was deciding whether I needed to flee immediately. It doesn't feel like that would even help, although it's good to remember it's still an option. Even if I decide to rebuild somewhere else, this is my world and it is being destroyed with vicious speed.
