The Middle Ring

It often appears these days that Mr. Brooks seeks refuge from the disaster that is the Republican party. It is a dysfunctional, radical departure from what we would like to perceive as societal norms. The values we would hold dear are nowhere evident in this platform of hate, distrust and distance from the plight of our fellow man. 

It is admirable that Mr. Brooks looks for answers but it serves as nothing more than false cover for self inflicted wounds.

For decades the Republicans have consciously and deliberately fostered and nourished their particular brand of absurdity and cruelty. Yes, the middle ring, that of compassion and understanding, of doing unto others...has sadly disappeared and what remains is Donald Trump. 

But the attempt of Mr. Brooks to psychoanalyze and explain does not and cannot excuse what has been done in the name of political expediency. It is unforgivable.
