A Story About Ants

Working together by listening carefully, through making subtle distinctions and granting good faith, is the only road forward.

Politics is not a game of football, and we shouldn’t blindly follow our own political sides ‘through thick and thin’, like we do our favourite sports teams.

This binary division of politics is fundamentally flawed, and is a distraction from the outside and often hidden truth.
