Yes, indeed. I wish more people could just be wary of politicians and "leaders" in general, instead of making excuses for them. I know nobody's perfect, but there has to be some semblance of respect (from the politicians' side). I should not be forced to respect anyone who does not respect minorities, people in poverty, those struggling to survive. Sometimes, it's exhausting to think how many in society are followers, when I wish they could form their own opinion, despite who they side toward or not.
The title made me think of self-obsession, ego, but also how people are obsessed with hearing his words. I have a friend who has the news on 24/7 and I've never heard an individual thought from her that's not regurgitated from some politician, you know?
I feel you in this piece, sending all the love to you, Dagmar. Hope you can find some sort of peace during this time <3
