Why is a Ukrainian life worth less than an American life? As usual, it comes back to “The West Wing” because Aaron Sorkin has a politic point of view that always seems to show up years later as reality. Don’t get me started on the story lines of “The Newsroom.”
LIfe and fiction regrettably repeats itself. Thank you for your extremely thoughtful and challenging piece. What to do? What to do?
I have been watching West Wing and also Newsroom when I can't bear to watch current history. I can't believe we are watching the slaughter as it happens.
Maybe there should be no NATO. Maybe it shouldn’t be about the deals cut by men I no longer trust or want to follow, but rather, our common values should dictate our actions. When a crisis arises in my life, it takes me less than a minute to decide whether or not I will show up to assist someone. It’s not a difficult decision.
This so resonates with me. It's the line "why can't we all just get along?" I get that this is a naive statement because we are in a paradigm of money, power and control. Our lives are governed by I am right and you are wrong. There is no right, there is no wrong. Why should any country have to experience this? Why do we even have tanks? No one should have to experience this. Where is the divergent solution?
