How America Fractured Into Four Parts
This is a long, but good, read.
You don't say.
The best person.
Yes we do.
It's not really surprising that people who believe insane stuff would choose to believe other insane stuff.
It was disappointing when the ACLU became just like every other progressive organization. Someone needs to be annoying and hold our feet to the fire! The ACLU was good at this. I hope they can be good at it again, someday.
"In short, this is a conservative worldview. It is anathema to any attempts toward addressing racial inequality as it actually exists. It’s self-serving. It’s dishonest. And it’s conservative."
Again, it's a good idea to read Freddie.
The time that Alex Trebek hosted the Starcade pilot is less weird than the time that Alex Trebek hosted the Malcolm pilot. But only barely.
It is long past time that these men got their due.
Without exaggeration: this is probably the best essay that I've read in a really long time, and one that captures the discomfort I feel with a lot of the nutty stuff on social media that is done in the name of the political causes that I've always supported. One or two sentences that I don't agree with, but everything else is perfect and I wish everyone would read and internalize this one.
Freddie is usually right. And yet again.
This is just delightful and crazy and wonderful. Wish I had seen it as a teenager.
Hard to feel optimistic about this one.
Chloé Valdary is a very wise woman, and one worth listening to.
You never know who you're helping. Alex Trebek helped a whole bunch of people.
This is probably the best article I read in all of 2020, and surely the one that offers the most compassionate and progressive way forward for humanity.
As progressives, we should be willing to point out that our stuff works out pretty well. More optimism! Less pessimism!
We need to do this, or else we will lose elections.
This is what I have been trying to tell my parents for the last 30 years now!
Loved this show as a kid.
Brilliant in every way.
Listen to Matt.
Freddie always drops truth bombs. Nothing but appreciation for this guy.
Wilmer Flores will always be a true Met.
This is withering, but excellent.
This is piercing in its logic.
We owe a lot to each other.
Mine too. Mine too.
One of the best pieces I read in 2019, without any question.
This. This this this this this.
A thoughtful riposte, this.
A classic piece on capital-o Online liberalism.
"Anyone who tells you to hate swaths of people has their own agenda. Find out for yourself. Make your own courage."
This Martha Nussbaum takedown of Judith Butler remains a brilliant and essential piece of writing and thought.
