Concentration Camp for Gays

The current wave of the persecution of gay men in Russia has culminated in the creation of a concentration camp for gays.  

People, this needs to be talked about. The only hope here is that this horror will become widely known and international pressure will be applied to make this stop. This is inhuman; this is beyond evil.


Authoritarian Weakness 

The greatest weakness of authoritarian leaders is that they always end up believing their own propaganda. Even when they come to power on a wave of popular support, they stop listening to anything but their own narratives and confuse them with the truth. Hitler, Stalin, Franco, Putin – they all find themselves trapped in their own lies.

I saw the notorious United video clip, and in all honesty, I wouldn’t want to be on the same flight with the crazy “doctor.” Overbooked flights are super annoying but his reaction is beyond unhinged. I’m not on his side.
