This morning I am listening to a mockingbird singing. It is serenely unaware that Civilization is collapsing around it. It does not know that the stock market is in free fall. It does not know that the Republican Party is morphing into some kind of fascio. It does not know and it does not care.
This mockingbird only knows that it found enough seeds and worms this morning. It has a full stomach and it feels like singing.
