June 6 2020 Daily Proof of Life Post

7:00 am EEST (GMT+3). This is the June 6 2020 daily proof of life post. I am mentally and physically exhausted by the onslaught of police brutality. Seriously, the response to people protesting cops using excessive force is to double down on excessive force? It infuriates me to the point that my anxiety, which normally keeps my impulse to speak out in check, has gone dormant. My Twitter feed for the past few days is just me retweeting video after video after video of police beating the hell out of people without justification.

And still, and still, there are people loving this violence. They think the people getting beaten deserve it. This is the enforcement of their ideology over some competing ideology. It’s the psychopaths and fascists that get to me, the culture that has enabled this behavior for decades, that disturbs me the most.

You can fire all the bad cops. Vote the Mad Carrot out of office. Make sweeping reforms that curtail the power of these animals. They’ll still be out there. They never go away. It’s clear that all they do in the best of times is crawl back under their rocks and await the next opportunity to slither out and wreak havoc. I don’t know what we do about that.

It feels like America needs an civil war – like it needs to tear itself apart before it can pull itself back together. The Race Issue in America has been up & down for as long I can remember. Maybe it is reaching a critical point that if can successfully get past, maybe some sort of healing can happen. We can only hope.
