Like your life depends on it
Shal asked ne to use this platform to encourage people to vote and i wish i had done it earier.
I choose this image because this election, more than any in my life is about privilege. If the Republicans win, it will mean everyone who is not a straight white male is going to lose rights. It means Trump will have won in bringing the country to a post truth age, where the bigger your lie and the larger your platform (i’m looking at you Fox News) the greater the deception you can perpetrate and the more crimes you can get away for unpublished.
So my ask is that you increase your game. If you have voted, please do some phone banking. If you are already phone banking, call your old friend who used to warn about creeping authoritarianism and ask them to do some as well. And of course, if you have not managed to get out and vote, please do at least that, otherwise you are likely to deeply regret it.
There are lots of close election, there are lots of places to work.
