We should be glad that 2015 is passing into memory, because it was a year when we could barely hold it together.
It was a year when we freaked out over symbols and scared ourselves with fake statistics. It was a year when the facts weren’t allowed to get in the way of a good, overwrought slogan. It was a year when we convinced ourselves that Earth was nearly beyond saving. It was a year of the safe space and micro-aggression.
It was, in short, a year of hysteria.
