My intention was to write a thought-through yet thankful, critical bit on the great American holiday that is Thanksgiving today. But frankly, I’m too tired. Too worn out from the clusterfucks from Egypt to Seattle, from the Eurozone crisis to tear gas. Too tired from being not-healthy.
So I’ll leave it at this:
By all means, be thankful today. Be thankful for what was given to you, for those around you, for the blessings, how small they might be, you received. Be thankful for making it so far.
But by all means, dearest Americans and other people of colonial powers: Think of the harsh, colonial reality behind the myth of the pilgrims, the Native Americans and the turkey.
