Lots of complaining going on because of the result of the recent election. Despair from many people, all the way that some expressed their wish to die now, before the US becomes an “even more horrible place” to live in. (I actually heard that phrase).
I was wondering, why the “despair”? Isn’t there a saying about the one who laughs last? After all this “miserable” world is just an insignificant interlude before the infinite bliss. And if Tertullian is right, one of the important part of that bliss is to “look down” onto the damned in hell, and snicker at their misery - as the good old Schadenfreude “dictates”! Who knows, maybe you will be able to “tease” the damned, thereby increasing their misery and increase your own happiness. Who knows, Tertullian might be right. What a pleasant thought it would be for you. Forget the insignificant problems and look forward the big picture!
