Then what am I supposed to do about it all…? Sometimes those ding-dang comic artists are quick to point out where everyone has gone off the rails. But they’re kind of slow in showing the way towards a more sane planet. Sure, they sometimes seem to have an idea, about what we, as a species need to do about it. More often than not, they just highlight the problem, with more or less volume than the next guy. And they seem to be content with pointing out the problem, and leaving the solutions to… Someone else… Just like the rest of us, I guess… Image found here.
Just what is the ‘new normal’, anyway? Cartoons aside – and aren’t there times when we all wished we had the freedom of a well-drawn and pithy little color and ink sketch – what do we mean when we say something like “the new normal…?” Perhaps it might help to define what we mean by ‘normal’; and then move on from there.
