I’ve had some time now to get over the initial pain of the 2014 midterm United States elections. I’ve mourned the passing of the control of the U. S. Senate from the centrist party to the right wing party. I’ve put up with God telling me that this too shall pass.
I know that the bend of history is ever towards progressive ends. It’s almost tautological, as humanity progresses we, well, progress.
But why does it have to be in fits and starts? Why did California have to get Same Sex Marriage and then lose it and then get it back. Why do we have to put up with the Affordable Care Act before the inevitable transition to a single payer system? Why, well why so many things?
God tells me that if he knew the answer to that, he wouldn’t have needed to make the universe in the first place.
