  1. Love your inspiring work! Always on point and thoughtful. It goes deep and has a “cutting edge” that really cuts through.

    You have an amazing ability to present difficult political concepts in easy to access and understand visuals. A true gift!

    And I *thank you* for every one of your insightful illustrations.

  2. Tradition! From the Know-nothings to the Jesus freak fascists there is a direct line of fear and hate.

  3. We lost Trump just to put a bigger racist like Biden in. Ether way the people lose.

    1. The main argument for this is the crime bill, yeah?

      I’m old enough to remember that the idea of funding 100,000 new cops and draconian new sentencing guidelines was a wildly popular trans-partisan program.

      At one point are we going to stop focusing on figureheads and accept that we are addicted to fear as our main motivating factor? That the population is too-often unwilling to fight for a positive vision? That manufactured consent, as Chomsky captured, depends on passive, uncritical consumers who have the most advanced brains on Earth (except maybe those dolphins?) who are crippled by their reptile brains, generations of trauma and the ennui of a post-tribal, sustainable existence?
