On the Shifting Sands of Peace and Democracy
Just catching up now. Please, keep up the good work. Someone has to..
Wonderful piece, Tim. Happy new year to you and yours.
Here I am, reveling in the peaceful inauguration of another Lula presidency, even while Bolsonaro's rabid fans theorize about the master plan that is just waiting to be hatched from the safety of Florida. It's an almost exact copy of QAnon cultishness from the USA a couple of years ago.
Currently enjoying The Dawn of Everything, an eye-opening survey of ancient society, with the central idea being an exploration of equality throughout human prehistory. It gives me hope that, although democracy as we know it is young, brutal authoritarianism may not be humanity's default.
Thanks for your ‘voice’ always. Best to you in 2023!
Thanks for your perspective, as always. Great pic!
Lovely writing, sir. Too bad it's so depressing...
Wonderful piece, Tim. Sending it around....
