“Nous allons vers un monde que je n’ai pas voulu, mais c’est le monde vers lequel on va.”
“We are heading for a world that I didn’t want — but that’s the world we’re heading for.”
This comes from the Franco-Canadian television show XIII.
That is certainly how I feel. A world that I don’t want…With the NSA spying on everyone. (And I think Edward Snowden is a hero like Daniel Ellsberg was with the Pentagon Papers.) A world of Tea Party Republicans. A dysfunctional U.S. Congress where the behavior of so many should be illegal and worthy of jail time. A still racist and sexist and homophobic U.S., along with so many other countries. The 1% beating the 99%. Fact deniers. And so much more.
A world that I don’t want. But that’s the world we’re in and heading for even more deeply, I fear.
Thanks to Jean-Claude for telling me this quote. Fab, my cousin and Jean-Claude, her husband, live near us in France.
