There is no “them”. There’s only us

Like you I have many thoughts about the UK election results. But my main thought is this.

Don’t fall into the trap of belittling and berating the people who didn’t vote the way you did. Don’t let yourself believe that “they” are racist, hateful or stupid. Don’t assume that because the politicians they voted for are bastards, they are too.

If you do, you’ll feel the same rage and sadness when you lose the next election as you do today.

There is no “them”. That’s what the worst politicians want you to believe. There’s just us.
