Free Navalny!

The Russian opposition leader is now a political prisoner. The Russian people should be allowed to choose their leadership in a free and fair election. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/02/worl ... putin.html

Re: US authoritarianism

What will the new administration do reverse authoritarian trends? Will they demilitarize the police? Will they end mass incarceration? These are dehumanizing policies which contribute to an authoritarian and perhaps fascist culture. As an outside observer I can observer the long fight against fasci...

Getting out in the streets, and yelling about perceived/actual injustice does very little to move the needle. Violence does even less.

Organizers these days suck.
Voting for 3rd party candidates in a referendum on whether the US remains a democracy does what though?

Re: Joe Biden sworn in as 46th US President

If it were only Pennsylvania and only one time that might make sense. But this is a consistent strategy and part of an array of tactics the Republicans use to try and suppress urban and minority votes. Republicans know where Democrats tend to live, this is targeted. https://news.berkeley.edu/2020/09...

Re: Joe Biden sworn in as 46th US President

But most of the US deaths were Democrats. persons of color, and poor so they don't count in Republican minds. Can that be true? A real failure if so.

All the Trump guests at the debate except Melania refused to wear provided masks. Trump held a fundraiser in New Jersey after being with positive tested Hope Hicks.

Re: What Did Everyone Think Of The Debates?

Good Lord, that was grim. Hard to see how anyone could motivate themselves to voting for either of them. Which, come to think of it, may well be Trump's strategy. Is the US similar to the UK in that the right wing vote is considered more robust? By that I mean right wingers are considered more like...
