On January 20th, the world changed. Donald J Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States of America. A day many would have thought impossible less than a year ago. Many of us looked at the political landscape, listened to the talking heads and figured Hillary Clinton had it in the bag.
We knew she was a greater risk than her primary opponent — Bernie Sanders. At the same time, we knew that the Donald didn’t want the job. He just wanted to monetize the fame and notoriety. Write a few books, give a few speeches, start a few businesses, and life would go on.
That’s not how it worked out. Hillary Clinton was defeated in the anachronistic Electoral College and that was that. The worst of American society was elevated to the White House — Nationalists, racists, thugs, and Wall Street pillagers. Well, I guess the last group never really left. With that said, the Robber Barons are being unleashed to decimate your 401k.
As we all move forward, our concerns loom large and rightly so. How will the new world look next year or the next? How will I navigate this landscape? How do I build a future?
The questions go on and on. Take it from me, the fear can be crippling. Many of us have had to take extended breaks for self-care. We all wonder what we can do. Some even think there is nothing that can be done or if they should even try. We at Progressive Army want to know about your greatest concerns. We have a great group of writers and researchers that may be able to give you some guidance.
In order to focus our efforts, we need to know what is most important to you. We want to have a clearer idea of how to handle life in the Trump Era. No matter how you feel about him, we all need to know how this new world may affect us and how we can affect this world in return.
Please take the survey below. This will help guide us going into the future. Thank you in advance for taking the time.
