I’ve started trying to write this post many times, and each time the fullness of the insanity of it all floors me. It’s been five days and I still can’t wrap my head around this. The problem is so complex that it defies proper analysis. I said very early on Wednesday that the country just put a loaded gun to its head and pulled the trigger. Whether it turns out the chamber was empty or not remains to be seen, but we were told it was loaded and shot anyway. May the gods have mercy on us all.
