Stopping the Bullies: The Moral Foundation of a Civil Society | The Smirking Chimp

Putin must be stopped. Trump must be held accountable. Rightwing politicians who encourage white Christian nationalism must be condemned. Celebrity pundits who fuel racism and xenophobia must be denounced and defunded. Police who kill innocent Black people must be brought to justice. Powerful men who sexually harass or abuse women must be prosecuted. CEOs who treat their employees badly must be exposed and censored. Billionaires who bribe lawmakers to cut their taxes or exempt them from regulations must be penalized, and lawmakers who accept such bribes must be sanctioned. Norms and laws must prevent such brutality. This is what civilization demands. This is why the fight is worth it.

But, says our desperate prime minister, he is our own bumptious buffoon, and therefore to be protected at all costs, even if that means destroying democracy in the process. Thus, the entire state preselection process is to be junked so that Kelly can be preserved for another crack at the electorate whose own preselecters were determined to get rid of him.

The rise and fall of Malcolm Turnbull – » The Australian Independent Media Network

On my first day of high school, I was looking around at all the new people with whom I would be spending the next six years of my life.  One of the toughest looking girls wandered over to me, shoved me, and said “Wadda ya think you’re looking at?”  I immediately responded “Dunno.  I didn’t…
