Unacceptable

Unacceptable. Americans, please give this a read, Helen is speaking truth about us.

Ro had this article sitting in his “saved” list, and I’ve been reading it all afternoon on and off. It’s by Helene Schouten, and was written in October 2015, and it’s a real eye-opener. I won’t quote it yet, because that would mean reducing it to “important” or “notable” parts and I haven’t spent nearly enough time with it to tell which parts to safely extract without breaking it.
