Please forgive me for getting political again
I suppose elections, even for class president
have always fundamentally appealed to the reptilian brain base
the simplest, reflex-based system
that never dreams
only lives to survive
at any cost
the little fight or flight button
that ramps up the adrenal glands
the most basic part of the brain
that lies beneath
the higher-thinking neocortex
that makes us human.
Certainly the Mad Men of the 50's understood this human trait,
& their adventures with it helped to create Today.
By now we're so acclimated to it
we might not even notice while it's working us.....
I just wanted to send this thought out there:
PLEASE carefully evaluate the claims
& strategies popping up all over the place.
Consider the source.
Consider what it's appealing to....
It's up to us to understand ourselves
make the difference.
