Avoiding Disaster

 "Are you enraged at the hypocrisy of a Republican or Democratic senator? Try recalling a time when you, too, behaved hypocritically because you thought it might help an important cause or because you thought the other side was wrong. Are you enraged at a group of Trump supporters wearing MAGA hats and insisting on the rights of the unborn, or at a group of social justice activists demanding that we defund racist cops? Remind yourself that our democracy depends on these people having their voices heard. You don't have to like them or their opinions to realize that silencing them is a disaster for us all and makes us all less safe."
