Today’s question asks for a political issue that interests you.
I don’t get too involved in politics because it’s terribly depressing, however there is one issue that I’ve become interested in after watching the first episode of this season of Vice on HBO. It is my understand that out of a sense of guilt from previous wars the United States was involved in that left cities and countries economically devastated, we now have a policy of making sure that we make efforts to leave these war-torn places better off. As such we have pumped unbelievable amounts of money into Afghanistan, more specifically into ridiculously wasteful ventures and it’s also ending up right into the hands of the Taliban, the enemy we’re supposedly fighting. The misuse of taxpayer funds is so anger-inducing and I was flabbergasted watching this Vice episode. The only thing I’m kinda left with is this, well what can I do about it feeling which is how I feel thinking about any political issue in this country. It didn’t use to be like this for me. I used to feel inspired and empowered, now I feel sad.
