growth and dynamism can unleash forces that are difficult for reactionaries to suppress and control

@pareene  @ryanlcooperno  accident that the most reactionary and “traditionalist” region of the united states was also the most stagnant and economically backwards

deputizing citizens to suppress the rights of other citizens while courts say “our hands are tied if private citizens are suppressing rights” is some real 1876 shit

more people should know that in 1970 Congress came within a few votes of amending the Constitution to abolish the Electoral College

The degree to which Sean Spicer has faced no consequences is a glimpse into the post-Trump future.
