2016 has been a terrible year, right? Terror attacks in Europe, countless shootings in the U.S., Zika, Brexit, climate change, the checking out of David Bowie, Prince, and dozens of other beloved artists, and, of course, the checking in of President-elect Donald Trump. Just look at what’s being said about him, weeks before he even takes office:
“I am scared that if [he] gets into office, we are going to see more of the Ku Klux Klan and a resurgence of the Nazi Party.”
“I’m afraid things are going to blow sky high during this next term.”
“He’s shallow, superficial, and frightening.”
You probably see sentiments like those on social media about, oh, infinity times a day. But those particular quotes were about Ronald Reagan, spoken in 1980 during his first presidential run. Those young enough to be born after his presidency might notice that Reagan did not, in fact, destroy the world, despite him being a conservative 70-year-old media personality with a habit of saying dumb things. So while it might feel as if 2016’s suckiness has doomed us all, keep in mind that we’ve been here many, many times before.
