Reading time: 3 minutes
That’s the boogeyman that Republican mothers and fathers have been scaring their children with by telling them that it is lurking under their beds and inside their closets and will take them away if they aren’t good and give all their money to the very very rich millionaires and billionaires who feel like they don’t have enough and deserve even more.

Election 2022: The Argument for Optimism


Reading time: 5 minutes
How likely is it that the Dems are going to hold on to the majorities in Congress?

As the Trump insurrection riot and TOO response makes clear, our democracy is under direct attack. The GOP really is actively trying to destroy our democracy. It is now all hands on deck.

Reading Time: 2 minutes
Ever wonder how the Senate Repubes are able to cope with the tremendous stress of being in such a hopeless situation?

Following Trump and Barr into Autocracy, Reviewing Masha Gessen’s “Autocracy: Rules for Survival”


Reading Time: 5 minutes
If you are as worried sick as I am about the fate of our democracy, then you’ll want to read my review of Masha Gessen’s 2016 article, Autocracy: Rules for Survival that was published in The New York Review of Books. When we compare her six rules to the sorry state of affairs, real despair sets in. It’s like watching one of those slasher horror films, you know what’s going to happen and there’s absolutely nothing you can do to stop it. Even though the character is being extremely stupid and doing stuff no one would ever do outside of a movie, you still gotta sit there and watch it.
