It’s hard to fight your allies.

I’m largely sympathetic to Obama, but I don’t really support the permanent war, or torture, or extrajudicial execution by drone, or the clampdown on whistleblowing or… well, you get the idea. So, in my desperate effort to process the new reality I’ve decided to think of this as a crisitunity. Yes, it is a crisis. But, it is also an opportunity. An opportunity to fight against permanent war, for starters. As well as an opportunity to fight for global human rights.

Let the crisitunity begin!

*Note: Chinese may not actually use the same word for crisis and opportunity.
