Each morning I get up and check to see if we’re still living in a Democracy.
I’m only half joking. In the US, Trump was just a symptom of the larger rot. It is not an accident that all around the world countries are falling into the trap of authoritarianism.
What can be done to stop the backsliding?
Maybe Bill Gates could start a PAC to get money out of politics. Maybe we could take to the streets to stop voter suppression.
Or maybe we could just keep being distracted by Harry and Megan.
Staying silent will kill us all. Nerds, unite.
