Lordie! I’m Glad that’s over, what a truly awful year it has been; for me personally at least. The decade was good though. I learned and puzzled out a lot. Stuff I very much wanted to learn. Started a lot of things, most failed but that’s to be expected.
For my country: the decade – oh my – what a train wreak! Decades of increasing polarization have born ugly fruit. The last year has been a huge improvement on that front. One can hope we have turned a corner, but so so far to go.
One can always hope that this is true: ‘adults learn best if presented with what he calls a “disorienting dilemma,” or something that “helps you critically reflect on the assumptions you’ve acquired.”‘
Better going forward, that’s the plan.
