“I don’t think there should be any barriers to the franchise for currently eligible voters” and “There should be fewer eligible voters” are actually two different positions of which you can’t just erase the differences.
And for what it’s worth I think the voting age should be lower, that there’s a case for allowing non-citizens to vote, and that i have no real desire to disenfranchise my political opponents.
“Everyone accepts some suffrage restrictions and therefore there is no moral difference between accepting the status quo and calling for even more restrictions” is just a dishonest argument on its face.

hey siri, what does it look like when someone fundamentally misunderstands the value of democracy and self-government?
you don’t have to be “intelligent” or “informed” — whatever those mean in practice — to be a good democratic citizen
one of the greatest experiments in egalitarian democracy this country ever saw was forged by people who, not even a decade earlier, had been enslaved laborers. that, if anything, should tell you that conventional notions of “intelligence” are overrated.

about this column! i wrote it over the course of yesterday afternoon, so there are a few things that i either couldn’t fit or didn’t get to and i wanted to note them here.…
1) I am wary of making direct historical comparisons for the simple reason that events are contingent. Jim Crow wasn’t the product of some transhistorical racism; it emerged out of the particular conditions of the South in the last decades of the 19th century...
...I’ve written about them in the past, but in short: agrarian revolt and black labor unrest, economic modernization in the cities, intense partisan competition, and the emergence of a new merchant-landowner class with direct ties to northern capital.

the only thing i really want out of a new ipad pro is for apple to orient the front facing camera for landscape use…
that aside, the hardware is pretty much perfect. the big limit on ipad pro potential is the software.
in this update, for instance, the ipad will support Thunderbolt 4, so you can hook it up to pretty much any high definition monitor. but iPad OS 14 only supports display mirroring. you can’t have one or two apps open on the iPad, and a different open on the display.

when you are argue that most attempts at voter suppression have no particular partisan impact therefore fears on both sides are overstated, you are making a category error about the basis of opposition to those laws
i’ve argued before that i think this stuff isn’t likely to work and may well backfire on the republican party. but the effects aren’t the primary story here, the intent and motivation is.
this exactly. we are under no obligation to pretend that history and context do not exist

catching up on falcon and winter soldier, and i somehow didn’t realize kurt russell had a son who looks...just like him? it’s uncanny
also, and i’m stealing from @GriffLightning here, i wish the opening Marvel stinger were pages from comics and not stills from movies. looks better.
