The only thing Americans don’t forget are their most cherished myths. In a contentious country, myths are the new truths, the vision and world view held dear against outsiders and common sense.
Can Hillary become mythical–can she shake the tag of being a corporatist hawk? Which thrown stones will vanquish the evil of greed and power? This is not an election over the mundane details of policy, the technical details of the debt, the test scores of public schools, or even the building of bridges, both physical and social.
This election is about a world view, a defining consensus of vision and comfort–and whether it will include hate and violence and a return to war and oppression–or will it further peace and expand prosperity by helping the fallen at home (and abroad!) while realizing the magnified benefits of our giving.
We are on the Jericho Road, with two different ethical sets and two different visions of the awaiting Zion.
