Oxymoron (ox-y-mo’-ron): Placing two ordinarily opposing terms adjacent to one another. A compressed paradox.
The impeachment trial in the US Senate will turn out to be a legal hijacking. It’s about blinded justice. The Republican majority is committed to what I see as virtuous vice–playing at what is starkly evil as if they are holding the moral high ground, when in fact, they are swamp bound abrogators of truth and perverters of the good.
I hope we (the US) can dig our way out of this mess, but the corruption and cheating are sanctioned–even bragged about and celebrated–by those in the highest positions of power.
I think the Republic is going to be lost. I think America is doomed to suffer the cold hell of a dictatorship.
