We may never have the opportunity to empower an enlightened or even wise being in the modern American political arena. We may always be stuck with choosing the less deluded of two deluded beings. It may be that all we can do is make wise choices as to who we think will bring about less suffering and confusion to the world.At first glance, that's a depressing, though unquestionably accurate, observation. But there's something freeing in it as well. Choosing the person who is likely to cause less suffering and confusion seems to be as valid a reason as any for supporting a particular candidate. Or it seems that way to me, right now, tonight—utterly uninspired, as I am, by any candidate of any stripe.
