I would think you would have to have a democracy before you could save one.

I agree that the US isn't a democracy but I think they are also becoming more authoritarian. I think Canada is heading in that direction too but less so than the US. The US Supreme Court's Citizens United decision has turned the US into a full fledged oligarchy. Much like Russia.

I guess I am a grumpy cynical old man because my first American political movement was largely correct in its analysis but it is now merely the subject of poorly done movies. Amerika has been a fascist police state since I started reading about its politics, over fifty years ago. Unlike Abbey I have not gotten disillusioned enough too commit suicide. I personally stole numerous copies of his most famous book and gave them away to my less daring classmates. His style led me to spray painting FLQ across walls in Ontario after the fascist War Measures Act was invoked by Trudeau the First. I love how Amerika's propaganda arm has rewritten history and it is now the Chicago Seven not the Chicago Eight. The Netflix take on it was pretty whitewashed and inaccurate in its portrayal of the peace movement, in particular.

Court jester-cum-political revolutionary Abbot “Abbie” Howard Hoffman is one of the most well-known figures of the Flower Power movement. Hoffman—a fierce opponent of the war in Vietnam; a staunch environmentalist; and a firm believer in leftist causes like wealth redistribution, universal health coverage, and ending homelessness—was a bombastic and theatrical figure who often used absurd media stunts to get his points across.




Late on the night of April 24, the wife of Georgia’s top election official got a chilling text message: “You and your family will be killed very slowly.”

A week earlier, Tricia Raffensperger, wife of Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, had received another anonymous text: “We plan for the death of you and your family every day.”

That followed an April 5 text warning. A family member, the texter told her, was “going to have a very unfortunate incident.”



Nothing but big trouble ahead!

The Push to Protect Voting Rights Is on Life Support

Joe Manchin’s defection, plus unanimous Republican opposition to legislation protecting the right to vote, is on the brink of killing a pro-democracy bill


The Trump freak show continues to ramble on and on


Same mentality, same political party, just different leader.


New emails from Justice Department and White House officials show how President Donald Trump's allies pressured then-acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen to consider false and outlandish allegations that the 2020 election had been stolen at the same time that Rosen was being elevated to lead the Justice Department in December 2020 and sought to get the Justice Department to formally back up the false claims.
