Of course. It just seems that it is going to be impossible to avoid. The only hope would be a decimation of the planet .... massive EMPs and
an 80% kill-rate plague, for example. I see politics, lunacy, lack of focus, lack of grounding, narcissistic preoccupation, greed and contempt at every level of American society these days. (I can't comment on other regions of the world, but, that said, most don't appear to be heading in any better direction, from what one gathers on the web). Voting for Joe Schmoe instead of Jill Shill just isn't going to make any difference.

Maybe the aliens will land and give us all Mary Poppins-esque lectures, morally uplifting, and invigorating to hope for a clean and shiny future. Or maybe our spirit guides will give all 6 billion of us a solid whack on the crown chakra with those star-tipped power wands they sport about with. Of course, one can't help but wonder: what's been keeping them so long...?
Human cultures, for the most part, are aging, not
like a fine wine, but rather, like a dairy product.
JUST my opinion. I seem to be in a sourish, if accepting, mood this morning.

I haven't vetted the links yet, but, well, see what you think.)
