America is known in the rest of the world as much more faith oriented than other countries. In the late sixties, the left let the right own the flag. Now the mistake is letting the right own the “values voter.” Marianne Williamson is well known as Oprah Winfrey’s spiritual adviser and now she is running for the Democratic nomination for president. After helping many desperate people transcend their difficult economic circumstances, she asks why should so many have to? Why have we let despair become so normalized? The opioid crisis arises from this despair. Williamson says our economic system itself is sociopathic. And that many voted for Trump because they felt a lack of respect; arrogance pushes voters away. Instead of the old “man against nature,” she insists humans need to be in partnership with the earth. Not your average candidate.
