Regular Coverage Will Resume Momentarily
So it turns out the post that was going to go up this week needs more work. I always find a counterexample the night before. In its place, I leave you with two videos from the ever reliable CGP Grey, which I hope will put your mind at ease during this election season. The first expands upon the Idea-as-Germ Theory that made the Cold War so worrisome.
The second might make you uncomfortable at first, but it's worth sticking with it.
Please remember, in all the hubbub and conspiracy theories and baseless accusations flying around in our segmented media landscape, that the thought germs that make you angry are not always the most accurate. And by believing in things that aren't true, we can give them the power to harm us they otherwise wouldn't have.
But I don't want to create a false equivalency. There's a lot of information out there, about a particular candidate, which is probably true, and will make you angry, and rightly so.
Don't boo. Vote, people.
