The current state of society is forcing sensitive people to become desensitized.

By senstive - I mean those of us who have empathy, those of who actually care about other people, other living creatures and our home, planet earth.

Not everyone has these feelings. Some people have no feelings whatsoever, which enables them to do ruthless things. When they do, the rest of us recoil and cope however we can, through anger and for most? They just tune it out to stop the pain of feeling.

When this happens, when the majority become desensitized, those who do ruthless things get away with it.

Right now, the ruthless are purposefully increasing the frequency and intensity of their actions as a tactic to control the sensitive - and it's working.

So how can people stop becoming desensitized?

How can we stop the ruthless?

2. I know what you mean. I feel overwhelmed and helpless.

About all I can do is donate what I can to political campaigns and organizations that I feel can make a difference and write/call my Representatives (all Republicans). It's disheartening.

4. I am also having issues

Depression, anxiety, and overwhelming feelings of helplessness and impending doom. I've tried to stay positive and practice self care, but the feelings just keep returning. It feels like the world is imploding. I can't stand much more of the hate and the ugliness. I'm losing my faith in humanity and feel hopeless about the future. And I hate feeling this way.

6. As a collective we see what's coming down the pike & how unprepared we are for it.

It's not bringing out the best in us.
