You’re right. Zen is good.

But it’s a lot easier to ignore politics if:

  • You’re young
  • Healthy
  • White
  • Male
  • Employed
  • Have a good support system
  • Don’t have a child who is military age

Everyone else has a strong interest in preventing the GOP from killing the following: Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, Women’s reproductive health rights, Labor rights, LGBT rights, Equal pay for equal work, a living minimum wage, environmental protection, food and drug safety, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, and lots of people (in the next unnecessary war).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
