We welcome JB Hixson back as the year winds down. JB will lend his considerable insights to this year as we review month-by-month. What were the events that shaped the year, and what fell by the wayside as other stories took center stage? What were some of the trends – and downward trajectories – of the moral issues of the day? From the Ukraine story, to the Pride month telethon and drag events; from the Abraham Accords to the Gaza war, there are things we can glean as we head into December and the annual (excess) consumer spending season. While there is usually not much to the headlines during the upcoming “holiday pause”, we find ourselves wondering if this be the last normal year we ever see in terms of living our lives as westerners who are definitely in denial. It’s not quite 2024 but you can see it from here.
