The Anti-Democracy Movement Run Amok

If you read just one thing today, please make it this.

Filosofa's Word

As I lay in bed at 5:30 this morning seeking that elusive thing called sleep, I received an email with Robert Reich’s latest newsletter.  Despite my better judgment, I started reading the piece and there went any hope for sleep.  Peter Thiel’s name has crossed my radar before … he is a billionaire with a net worth of about $4.7 billion who has bankrolled some pretty nasty political candidates, most notably the former guy.  I didn’t know a lot about him, though, and Mr. Reich took care of filling in some gaps … some rather disturbing ones.  Please take a minute to read his piece, for it is well worth your time — just don’t read it at bedtime.

  2. One can’t help ask why there’s such a race to the bottom with these vile, despicable characters? Whatever happened to doing good things? Sigh.

    This country that I love is becoming less and less recognizable to me with every passing day. And all of that insidious shape-shifting is based on nothing but FEAR. Fear of anything that is different from the aging, white, male paradigm of power. If we are not careful to heed the warnings of people like Reich and others, we will be another Hungary or Turkey in the blink of an eye.
