I was creeped out during the primaries, creeped out during the general election, and am now equally creeped out that this cult of personality still persists. It seems to keep growing, with no end in sight. It's one thing to feel empowered, uplifted and all around excited about the prospect of a politician you can finally believe in. It's a completely another thing to have idolization take place. Where a face replaces any objective meaning, where artists make propaganda like videos, and people go damn near hysterical with obedience (When someone starts a sentence with "Obama is asking me..." or "He wants me to..." it gets to a point where one is looking more for a father than a President to lead this nation). For God's sake, we even have corporations now in the act. It's one thing to praise him, it's another thing to worship him.
Being a cynic, I’m naturally a bystander to this phenomena rather than a participant, and I hope to keep it that way.
Back to hiatus.
