There’s the old labor song “Which side are you on?” Corporatists want us to believe we never have to choose a side — but in this epic battle against oligarchy, we do have to make a choice.

A lot of people think that folks like your typical lawyer or doctor are in “the 1%.” That may be bc it’s hard to conceive how bad runaway inequality has gotten.

Both rationality & emotion are inextricable to good leadership, which balances the two. If a person doesn’t feel urgency in their gut when communities are poisoned or when a young man dies bc he couldn’t afford price-gouged insulin, then they shouldn’t be in politics. At all.
It is time we trash the idea that empathy = leadership weakness. When people hurt, we should hurt too. That’s what good leaders do. It adds urgency & humanity to our decision making. Suppressing emotion can lead to aggression, impulsivity, & other erosions of leadership ability.
You know, maybe one of the actual problems w/ our politics is that too many politicians don’t feel anything when Americans die bc they can’t afford medicine, or when babies are permanently separated from parents. GOP only has tears for billionaires & outrage towards “others.”
