Remember the David Foster Wallace keynote address “Fishtown 101” (alternative title: “This Is Water”)? It’s an evocative and beautiful reminder about the importance of retaining empathy and awareness during difficult times. It’s also a bit rich, coming from someone who threw tables at women whenever his feelings got hurt. DFW may have been a sensitive Pisces, but that didn’t stop him from using his vulnerability as a weapon. 2020 is a great time to cast aside that bandanna, figure out what cruelties are disguised as kindnesses, and what forms of control are masquerading as freedom. Ask yourself: is this water, or is it fish piss and microbeads?

Read the room, Aries.
