So. In spite of this moronicity, 50% of this country still votes for these clowns because “on the one hand, on the other”. Britain voted by a hefty majority in 2019 for Brexit to continue mostly because of a desire to ban immigrants and they were exhausted by paralysis. 50% of Poland RE-ELECTED the conservative government that is closing Polish museums b/c they don’t tell the right story. Hungarians have voted by a solid majority to fence off Hungary (and the rest of Europe) from refugees. 60% of Czech voters chose Euroscepticism and the current Prime Minister (from the majority party) is subverting the independence of the judiciary. 55% of voters supported Bolsonaro in Brazil, who’s basically a Brazilian Trump.

We are moving backwards and voters are doing it. I hope the arc of the moral universe bends toward justice, but it appears to be very, very long.

We can do better.
