This episode begins with the ancient idea that human beings are the make-weights in the scales of time. That means that in critical moments humans can tip the scales of life in the direction of renewal rather than decline. The idea that every vote counts rests upon the idea that every life counts. And now, that rests upon the underlying idea that everything is interconnected. Michael Meade considers how the set of worldwide crises we all face makes the voting process part of tipping the scales of time as well as the scales of justice. He talks about the politics of democracy versus autocracy; but does so in the context of psychology and mythology. Sometimes a vote is more than a preference. Sometimes a vote is more like a prayer or a pledge to help life change and heal and renew.
