The compromise buttigieg is asking us to make is go more right so we can work with the right, but inherent to this is a decision to abandon and thus lose support of the left. Bernie says lets try to bring in more of the left because he has the Washington experiencing to know that the republicans don't compromise. The right will never work with even the centrist dems like Obama. I think this needs to be pointed out to Buttigieg supporters that don't think history matters in Washington.

This is one of my favorite shots to have been able to capture.

No easy way to share from Flickr though. So consider this a gateway drug of a toot.

To be counter-culture, you have to *counter* the culture. And in a world where anti-semitism and anti-blackness and xenophobia and workers abuse and burnout culture and billionaires and r/pe culture exist and is excused, you gotta counter that shit, not repeat it.

In my time studying to be a journalism major, one of my favorite professors used to say, "As a journalist: if your mother tells you she loves you, ask for 3 sources."

We all used to laugh, but we understood the point.

If only real journalism hadn't been killed for expediency and access.

The world isn't black or white. Nothing is pure good or bad. And yet every single discourse worth having is currently had in a black or white fashion.

So much is lost. So much will never be, simply because of the loss of nuance.
