11. Too many people have abandoned heroism in their politics

We're all supposed to be the heroes of our lives: the awakened and tested protectors of the innocent. But too many fail to take on that role in their politics, preferring to remain the child, despite their age, and in this twilight of childhood they see themselves as victims and turn to their political mommies and daddies to tell them who's good and who's evil. Sadly, they will never know the bliss that comes from transforming the world into a safer place for others. A child owning her own hairbrush is just a start but it's a necessary one. This primordial impulse we feel to help others, even those we may never know personally, is what got us out of the trees and has made life better, haltingly, over the centuries, so that now a hero needn't carry a rifle or storm a fortress, but rather wear a mask, stay home, help the needy, and vote for Democrats. I wish for a time when you can drink your coffee in peace and your only worry is what mischief the dogs might be up to.
