“We must get it right this time or risk losing our democracy forever.”
“Denial may be neither a matter of telling the truth nor intentionally telling a lie. There seem to be states of mind, or even whole cultures, in which we know and don’t know at the same time.” (quoting Stanley Cohen)
“Our only hope for our collective liberation is a politics of deep solidarity rooted in love.”
We need to learn our history in all of its shameful detail, then act up for change on all fronts.
