This is a test

It is only a test. Had it been an actual democracy, the opinions you’ve just expressed with your votes would have led to a difference in the people representing you in the houses of law and power.

This is a test. It is a test of your will to change things. It is a test of the reasons you would like to change things: do they matter? Do they matter more than your comfort? Do they matter enough?

This is a test: are you still reading? I could bet you aren’t still reading. Who put this here? You can’t know.

This is a test: are you uncomfortable?

This is a test: are you engaged?
