The better angels of our nature

Posted by appolus on November 7, 2018

Very interesting night last night. As a long time observer of politics, the only historic thing that happened last night was that the GOP held the senate and actually gained seats. The average loss for the party in power in a midterm is 33 seats. Right now the Democrats looked like the may gain the average, but may not, so certainly no blue wave.

Most of the seats gained by the Democrats were gained by narrow margins from Republicans. What does that mean? Well, it modifies behavior. This is why CNN and others are very subdued this morning. These politicians of both stripes now have an opportunity to actually do something for the country. They could come together and have a huge infrastructure bill, they could come together and take on big Pharma. Will they? Sadly I do not believe so.

Thirst for revenge is a very basic human emotion. Hatred for your enemies rather than love for your country almost always wins out because there is nothing more worldly than politics. It typically represents everything that is bad about us a human beings. It is a platform to highlight our weaknesses not our strengths. In short, it is representative of the dark side of who we are.

It is not a place where the better angels of our natures dwell, quite the opposite, it is a place where the darker demons of our natures are highlighted. I love God so much because He is above the fray. His ways are higher than our ways. His path is a path of light and leads to love and peace and forgiveness. The enemy of our souls path is one of darkness that leads to hate and anxiety and division. We saints are called to walk on the narrow path of light. Lets do that saints.
