How will we go back to enjoying that moment in the crowd when we have learnt to be suspicious of every-body. Each suspect without intentions or malice to reason with.
What happens next sets off an adventure of questions.
There is no more space to push human rights. We are already living in a society where suffering and injustice is built into the everyday practice of life, as normalised as passing someone by in the street who is asking for help. As official as the immigration process, that takes your passport and detains you indefinitely, status above humanity.
But making it easy, also makes it boring. Files away the butterflies. Erodes the delicious excitement of the unknown.
Whatever you think. Whoever you vote for. Perhaps we share the same sinking feeling. With all the stress and injustice in the world, it does not feel like we are heading in the right direction.
