A Time for Refusal

I told myself that I was done with posting about the election. Time to center myself again and get back to writing. But after reading this brilliant comparison of election results with Eugene Ionesco’s play Rhinoceros, I had to share this article. A Time for Refusal

In many ways this election has seemed like Theater of the Absurd. Cole describes how an epidemic of “rhinoceritis” spreads throughout the play – an epidemic now spreading throughout a country that refused to believe such a thing could happen here. “Evil settles into everyday life when people are unable or unwilling to recognize it.”

I do not use the word “evil “lightly, for it is too often misused. This time it fits. It is time to refuse.
