Revolution Is Racist. Populism Is Sexist. Economic Justice Is Homophobic.
Caitlin Johnstone

Aside from what Caitlin is recommending, keep your brain flexible. Do some arithmetic drills, paper or mental. Some memory exercises, that involve visualization, e.g. memorizing a deck of cards. Meditation, visualization, solitary periods of pure thought.

And read up (or watch on Youtube) on Daniel Kahneman’s research, about our own cognitive flaws. Be on the lookout for technologies that compensate for our limitations, that might assist us in drawing conclusions and admitting that we don’t know things.

Propagandists aren’t counting on a relaxed and thoughtful population.

Finally, watch or read Chris Hedges. And if you take away nothing else from him, at least consider forgiveness. And yes, that means the bankers, the deep state, and Trump.

Thanks, Caitlin.
