i don’t trust anyone talking about normalcy right now. for one, things were terrible before the pandemic & there should be no desire to return to it. for two, the same people generally think donald trump was an aberration of the system, not a result of it, so those opinions need to be sent to the back of the line.

since 2020 was so awful, nobody seems to remember how shit 2019, 2018, or any number of the years prior were absolute dogshit as well. the idea of sentimentalizing the united states is, at best, grotesque privilege; the idea that anything since 9/11 has been worth returning to is some combination of borderline insane & totally fucked.
