I am furious about Russia’s actions during the previous United States election, mostly because I came to Canada from the United States and hate what Trump stands for. On Sunday, I listened to Michael Enright’s essay on the inherent hypocrisy in this condementation given the history of election interference by the United States. I found the story interesting but found it one-sided–what about intervention by the former Soviet Union?? What about the other European powers?
Carnegie Mellon University researcher Dov Levin has developed a database of egregious interventions in elections, which about his historical database that tracks U.S. and the former U.S.S.R’s meddling with foreign elections over the years.
This does not mean that we stand down and say ‘well, everyone does it’, it means that we build a movement for fair elections for everyone.
