The Tragedy of What’s Ignored

America is consumed by rapid fire news events, preparations for Trump’s impeachment, and Trump’s and his enablers’s frantic efforts to invent distractions, delay proceedings, and construct elaborate fabrications by way of counterattack. Meanwhile, critically important matters of state are being ignored. Arms control negotiations are imperative. So is leadership in uniting the world to combat global warming. So is the need to address the widening gap between the rich and the poor, and its destructive effect on society. So is immigration reform and gun control. So are half a dozen other requirements of responsible government. They are all being ignored and will continue to be ignored until Trump is out of power and stable, sane, and honorable government has been restored.
