Window View

Skepticism is an exhausting discipline.

Too many citizens trust their government
not because it has earned that trust,
but because it is easier.

Easier because it demands no action
but taking it.

Easier because any other reaction
requires we back up our ideals
with disturbing realization,
so we withdraw into trust,
abdication of duty,
for short term comfort
and hope without reason.

The world is moving fast, and
I don't trust the drivers.
