In the end we will have to continue the movement towards equality...


Graphic mine

..'in the long run there is a movement towards more political equality, more social equality and more economic equality.... the end of slavery, the rise of universal male suffrage and the rise of workers’ rights. This continued in the 20th century with decolonisation, with social security, with progressive taxation and female suffrage, and it’s continuing today with the #MeToo movement and with Black Lives Matter.”

It is sometimes hard to remember - as the right wing seizes the narrative across much of the West - that progress has been made - and as much as they push for a nationalist retreat - this is not going to be the future. Not one bit of it, progressive strategies are the name of the game for fixing the big stuff. Go us!

2. The movement towards equality is a rational statement,

the move toward autocracy is not rational.
