“I believe that one of the few things that stands between us and an accelerated descent into darkness is the set of values inherited inherited from the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. This is not a fashionable view at this moment, when the Enlightenment can be dismissed as anything from superficial and intellectually naive to a conspiracy of dead white men in periwigs to provide the intellectual foundation for Western imperialism. It may or may not be all that, but it is also the only foundation for all the aspirations to build societies fit for all human beings to live in anywhere on this Earth, and for the assertion and defense of their human rights as persons.”
–Eric Hobsbawm, “Barbarism: a User’s Guide,” from “On History” (1998).
Cartoon is offensive! Not all Republicans are Trump supporters. New voting laws do not suppress voting as reported. The laws make it more accountable. Every dem keeps saying suppression but none state facts on how it’s suppressive. Any legal voter has the same voting rights. If you don’t know where to vote you probably shouldn’t be voting. If it doesn’t pass then we can go to every precinct and cast votes at as many precincts we can get to in one day. I’d must be required and we should vote at our own precincts. If people move then they can easily go to the courthouse and re-register and get their new precint address. Millions of people do it every year. Why should it not apply to democrats?
