2017

I find this xkcd entry very much in tune with my own feelings and misgivings about 2017. I like the notion that 2016 is sending us in the future without things (and people) it would have been better to keep. Like reaching out instead of building barriers, whether about staying in the EU or uniting all Americans under one’s presidency, rather than tweeting scorn, exclusion, and righteousness. Like keeping hospitals standing and operating, instead of flattening them out, in Syria, Irak, Yemen and Afghanistan. Like preserving women’s access to contraception and abortion, instead of [old men] ruling over their body and rights. No, 2017 does not look too promising.
