I think all governments, and certainly the U.S. (The fascists are ridiculously without restraint and gleefully racist/sexist/obscene), needs to do more to regulate, oversee, enforce human rights throughout the land, all lands. Basic decency is not too much to ask/require. But how we get there is beyond any plan of action I can come up with. The people who elect the fascists are fascist themselves. How do we make it uncool to be fascist when it has become the coolest thing imaginable, hooting and showboating during the State of the Union address becomes hooting and showboating on main street and in homerooms in school districts nationwide. Fascists egging on fascists, upping the ante, destroying the social bonds that hold the country together because they can. I am ashamed of all of those who feel no shame. Who is going to stop the incivility? Call it out? Disappear it entirely? And how are we going to instill respect and honor for the common good? We do it with each of us doing what we can, when and where and how we are able, Against all odds. Not caring what our chances are. And not stopping until things turn around, and people treat people with compassion, kindness and generosity from the heart for the true good of all concerned.

Oh, yes! I have just seen “The Banshees of Innershin”which illustrates these principles perfectly. If you can’t love people start with a pet.
