A survey this past Wednesday asked: “Are you watching the Olympics this year?” You answered:
53% Actively no, something is “off”.
38% Passively no, I simply haven’t had time/interest.
9% Yes, but this year feels different.
0% Yes, it’s as thrilling as usual.
It isn’t just the Olympics, where athletes, isolated from their families, are performing historic feats to empty stadiums. Something is definitely “off” stateside, too. Our government grasps for authority by resurrecting severe COVID mandates — and finds no audience for their performance.
Among the people, there’s a spirit of righteous rebellion. Forces for a good stretch across our country. Together we can carve out a better path.
