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).
