You fight symptoms and try to protect yourself as best you can. But pain is always there. In the US, Trump wants to pass his tax cut law. This is just a way to make rich people really rich and destroy the rest. Some consider it to be "normal procedure" as politicians sit around and just deliberately lie. Even though they know they're on national TV, they don't care.
Despite this, you screen everything and try to protect yourself as best you can. You feel empty, but you know you're doing the right things.
