I get upset so often at the news that I tend to forget the specifics of what got me upset in a few days. Last week for example, I was moved enough that I thought about a post on this site. Now 5 days later I have forgotten what precisely got me upset except that it was about genocide, another obfuscation, wordplay about culpability and total cynicism. Well that says a lot about how often I notice news like that (almost everyday, what a cheering thought!) and how much I am just like anybody else in my reaction to information: “How awful! ” then I move on. And yet “Move on” are some of my most hated 2 words phrase, precisely because such an attitude of inattention helps reproduce the very horrors we shy away from.
