If you're like me, this post from Robert Reich may have come just in the nick of time. The Seduction of Cynicism.
I thought I’d start out with some thoughts directed at people who consider themselves to be progressive but have given up on politics because it seems rotten to the core. They may prefer Obama to Romney but don’t think there’s a huge difference between the two, so may not even vote.
Your cynicism is understandable. But cynicism is a self-fulfilling prophesy. If you succumb to it, the moneyed interests win it all.
Go read the rest. It's good food for thought.
