This piece pretty well sums up why I feel a need to call to action in the wake of Trump’s election. If we accept what’s happened and meekly watch what happens next, we will be complicit in the inevitable disaster that overtakes the world.
We need to lift voices – both our own and those of others – that stand firm against ignorance and totalitarianism and call for solidarity and resistance.
The storm is coming in Europe, both in the guise of right-wing populists of various stripes but also in the guise of appeasers in positions of power who talk about “moderation” and “cooperation” as they bend their necks to the despotic forces on the rise. Both must be stopped.
The alternative is simply too dire.
