Kingsolver: It’s too late to play nice

Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite writers, and she has to tour with a bodyguard because she dares to speak out about environmental degradation in our country. Here’s something she wrote about how those of us who voted for the candidate who won the most votes MUST protest.

The article in The Guardian is called, “Trump Changed Everything: Now Everything Counts.”

We have to protest despite being raised to respect and accept political change. We did that with George W when Gore really won, and what did it get us? A firestorm of wars in the Middle East. It’s too late to play nice. Everything that holds us together is at risk.
