“Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night?”Jack Kerouac
The U.S. is going through its quadrennial hypoventilatory tantrum, known as presidential election year. Currently it’s in the form of the Democratic party’s ritual gauntlet of pain to choose its nominee. What’s interesting about seeing America’s political process from abroad is the attention it demands and that so many American’s think they deserve. Idiotic slights between candidates dominate headlines abroad that should be covering more pressing matters closer to home. America has sold the idea that its decisions are more important, and a lot of the world seems to have gone along for the ride.
The world is burning. Regardless of who’s in the White House next January, that won’t drastically change. Care less about these shit shows and more about one another.
