Video: Why The Idea Of Nation Is Absurd. And Unbeatable
But nation states are so widespread and we all have embraced the myth so deeply that the ideology is hardly seen as something artificial.

That's what makes this New York Times video so interesting. It's vital to remember that the assumption claiming that language, race and religion equal a country is just absurd and unreal. It's only an illusion, and quite a new and recent one.

250 years ago kings and emperors used God or lineage to legitimise their power. But the merchant class, when they revolted against the aristocracy, needed a powerful idea to get the support of the poor population: the idea of a nation.

Bribery, Cooperation, and the Evolution of Prosocial Institutions - Evonomics
There is nothing natural [1] about democracy. There is nothing natural about living in communities with complete strangers. There is nothing natural about large-scale anonymous cooperation. Yet, this morning, I bought a coffee from Starbucks with no fear of being poisoned or cheated. I caught a train on London’s underground packed with people I’ve never met before and will probably never meet again. If we were commuting chimps in a space that small, it would have been a scene out of the latest Planet of the Apes by the time we reached Holborn station. We’ll return to this mystery in a moment.

ACLU Battles Voter-Suppression Architect Kobach in Kansas Court - WhoWhatWhy
Sadly He Is Not on Trial, Just One of His Schemes
If Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) weren’t such a grave threat to US democracy, he would be an almost comically inept bad guy in the mold of Elmer Fudd. While the latter hunts a “wabbit,” Kobach always claims to be on the hunt for huge numbers of non-citizens who cast illegal votes.
That particular danger to democracy is about as real as Bugs Bunny.
Kobach, however, is a different story, because he actually is a threat to fair elections in the United States. Unfortunately, not enough people are paying attention. This week, for example, far away from the media spotlight, another of his voter disenfranchisement schemes is being debated in a courtroom in Kansas City.

Redux: predictable state container for Javascript apps
Redux is a pattern for managing application state. In general, use Redux when you have reasonable amounts of data changing over time, you need a single source of truth, and you find that approaches like keeping everything in a top-level React component's state are no longer sufficient.

Pennsylvania’s New Map Helps Democrats. But It’s Not A Democratic Gerrymander. | FiveThirtyEight
Pennsylvania’s new congressional district map, released Monday by the state Supreme Court, is sure to improve Democrats’ electoral outlook in the state. Over the long term, Democrats can expect to occupy one to two additional seats compared with the current map, according to a FiveThirtyEight analysis. (The state’s congressional delegation currently has 12 Republicans and five Democrats. One seat is vacant.)
The court ordered that the map be redrawn after finding that the current one, which was enacted by the Republican state legislature in 2011, was a partisan gerrymander and violated the state’s constitution. (Republicans were given a chance to submit a substitute plan — which they did. And the Democratic governor, Tom Wolf, was given a chance to reject the plan — which he did.) The map submitted by Republicans probably would have benefited them less than the current map does, but it would still have been better for the GOP than what would be expected based on the partisan makeup of the state. Because the legislature and the governor couldn’t come to an agreement, the court stepped in.
