We need to develop everyday empathy with the people we encounter in our daily lives. That is to have a better understanding of their experience and our contributions to it.
This is a reblogged story of a woman’s experience working in Iraq shortly after the fall of Baghdad. It helped me understand the constant corrosive nature of sexism on women, which can easily be extended to the constant corrosive nature of racism on PoC’s.
Why is the press such a useful idiot when it comes to conservative lies, diversions, conspiracy theories, and other transparent manipulations? Prospect theory and loss aversion hold the answers, but it don’t make it no better. Can one of our pillars of democracy stand up and save our democracy? Please? Does it have to be We The People?

Narcissists believe that rules don’t apply to them, so the Ol’ Pussy Grabber violates one of America’s most highly regarded taboos with reckless aplomb. Will he pay the price or are we too far gone?
The Atlantic and FiveThirtyEight have each published articles about how the GOP is now collectively scratching their collective ass and wondering how to get rid of the dead rat stuck in the wall. Coulda just read my blog cause I TOLD YOU SO!
Everything a good person does must be good, right? It just stands to reason, don’t it? That’s what the slavers in the 1850’s and 1860’s thought then, and it is what the apologists think now. Read excerpts from The Atlantic of 1850 countering the same arguments you hear being made today. Sad.
