If You Look For Trouble, You’ll Find It

Don’t worry. That’s the best advice I can give you today. If you read the news (and you’re reading a news blog, so it almost goes without saying you read the news), you’d think the world is falling apart. I cover the news for a living, and the velocity of change is increasing so much that it’s very difficult to know what to cover, and by the time I try to even achieve a basic understanding of one thing, everyone’s moved on.
Nobody takes time to study the issues because there’s no time to do it. Two weeks ago, we were all carping about health care. Before that it was Russia. Now it’s terrorism in Spain, Confederate statues, and neo-Nazis. I still haven’t caught up on health care.
Let’s get serious about life for a moment. Since January 20th, has your job changed? Have you been forced to move? Have you been summarily arrested or had your life threatened because of your beliefs? Have you lost access to your health care? Maybe some of these things have happened, but statistically, they haven’t to just about all of you.
Occam’s Razor—the simplest explanation is usually the best. If you go looking for trouble, you’ll probably find it. If you seek to stay out of trouble, sometimes it will find you, but most of the time, you’ll avoid it. The people who went to Charlottesville were looking for trouble, pure and simple. And they found trouble.
