A bit of good news to cheer
The dog days of summer are in full force and there seems to be little in the public sphere to feel very optimistic about. Right-wing ideologues are attempting to stand in the way of economic, environmental and social progress at every turn as they pursue their dream of a weaponized and corporatized theocracy.
Ultimately, of course, they will fail, but for now it’s enough to make a caring and thoughtful person feel a bit overwhelmed by the volume of hard work that lies ahead.
All the more reason, therefore, that we should take a moment this fine Monday morning to celebrate this amazing and wonderful development as a welcome reminder that the the arc of the moral universe does in fact bend toward justice.
