Watching the current climate of the U.S. and the dysfunction that’s reigning, it’s pretty easy to conclude that governance is out of control. And, of course, governance = humans.
But this sign is not just about those in power. This sign is a blanket indictment of humans in general.
As a practitioner who helps people recover from troubling emotions and trauma, I find the declaration that “humans suck” may be an attitude adopted by people who are having a hard time navigating the behaviors of others.
As we know, unlike people, dogs don’t talk back. That’s why “people” relationships are tricky – because people do talk back… and often it’s not what we want to hear.
