Better time’s a coming

It’s going to be all right.

No one wakes up in the morning wanting to hate their neighbor. No one wants the world to go to hell in a hand basket. People want to believe the best of others — the worst of us depend on that instinct and get rich exploiting it.

People (eventually) know when they’ve been duped and made fools. People remember; they may not remember the details but they know who they trust and who they don’t.

At some point, the fear mongers will rise up and say, “Be afraid! Be very afraid and do as I say!,” and a great many people will say, “No, I don’t think so.”

And the sun will come up the next morning.

It’s going to be all right.
