Yes, social media and the web have allowed us to too-conveniently block any news or facts we disagree with, while also flooding us with enough of the opposite. But here's the thing... we've always had this ability. We've always been tricked and pulled and tweezed like this.

We Don't Need A President's Permission To Be Kind

I choose to keep the "Stronger Together" message as an ongoing, ever-present beacon. This house -- and by that, I mean, both the one I live in and the one that lives in me -- holds the space and admiration and compassion for anyone of integrity.

Don't Ask Yourself How This Could Have Happened

There are not enough people willing to be a voice for the voiceless. Hate has been simmering just beneath the surface, lurking in the shadows, and we have been content to sit on the sidelines, hoping others will fix it for us.... We've blessed bigots with our patience. Hate is learned and fear is contagious. We teach each other to be afraid of anything different from ourselves.

Cable News Failed Us This Year

Ward Anderson | Posted 11.08.2016 | Canada Living
Ward Anderson

Somewhere in the past 20 years or so, Americans started repeating a false narrative. The myth was about there always being "two sides to every story" and that -- because of that belief -- the media was responsible for always showing both sides. But that's simply not the case. By making mindless arguing over every single issue the norm, cable news has convinced a misinformed public that the facts are whatever is said by the person who screams the loudest.

Trump's Crazy Campaign Spared Clinton Scrutiny She Deserves

Americans do have valid reasons to doubt Hillary Clinton and question her motives. Her blind ambition, not the commitment she has to public office, is what turns most away from the Clinton brand. But, then again, she is running against Donald Trump, who is essentially unqualified to be president.

Stop Treating Political Parties Like Sports Teams

Politics is the art of managing hypocrisy. We excuse the leaders we like for doing the same things we excoriate other leaders for doing. Sometimes this hypocrisy is so blatant, so pronounced, that it surprises me to know that most of us never see it.

Clinton Vs. Trump Is A False Choice

We shrugged as the media pumped Donald Trump into our homes 24/7. We could have demanded the same coverage for Bernie Sanders, but instead we guffawed at the spectacle. We aided the media's manipulation through apathy, and now we are feigning surprise that it has come down to these two horribly flawed people. Like the war in Iraq, we just swallowed the content and acted like the coverage was simply a reflection of the reality. It wasn't. It was an invention from the start.

Here's a thought, Bernie. You could decide you're forming a new party: The Progressive Party, say. Millions of donations would carry you, millions of independents would cheer and vote for you. Progressives would run for Congress. The U.S. political culture would finally gain a progressive flag to wave -- for a long time into the future.

America was so preoccupied with fear that it made the entire world afraid. We were all so terrified of each other that our silent killer slipped into our homes without protest. They say that there were some people who tried to warn us... but we didn't listen, and we paid the price.

The Rest Of The World Needs A Backup Plan If Trump Wins

Building progress and trust, as the U.S. did, takes a long time to accomplish far more than constructing a building. But Trump will help destroy such progress if he is elected as the president of the United States. All the respect and admiration the world used to have towards this great country will vanish into thin air.
