Compartmentalization. It’s a good word that describes much, even if it doesn’t explain it. For instance, how, in the face of tragedy, chaos and poverty, can people just carry on with their lives as if nothing is going on? How can they just go to the fridge for a beer and sit down in front of Dancing with the Stars when nothing is going right in their world? How can there even be DWTS when there is that level of chaos in Syria, Somalia, freaking tornadoes in Indiana? Compartmentalization, that’s how. Doesn’t the juice from one compartment ever leak through into another? Why are we not all political artists? That’s what I want to know.
