No Room for In-Between

Posted on 2018.10.09 at 16:39
Here is a telling example of how there is less and less shared ground between the left and the right, the rich and the poor, the male and the female. Today, it is such intermediaries as transgendered people who are suffering the roiling strife electric in this widening great divide. But, more and more, it be the unsuitably left, the unsuitably right; the almost-poor, the almost rich - basically, it will be more and more of you and me - what we once lovingly called, "the middle class." You can kiss class goodbye, these days:

Gender danger: Trans student barred from all locker rooms, left in the open at school shooter drill

It is fear that drives people to create these polarities, and it is first the people in the very middle, who are generally disempowered or poor, who are the martyrs to the rising, general antipathy. As examples of our own beisieged humanity. But, if we keep dividing upon dividing, one day, it will be evryone:

One day it will be you.
