“We have at most a year to defend American democracy, perhaps less“
"When an American president says “America First” or proposes a political system without the two parties or attacks journalists or denies the existence of facts, that should set of a series of associations with other political systems. We need people who can help translate ideological utterances into political warnings." --Timothy Snyder

The data that turned the world upside down
Seventy "likes" were enough to outdo what a person's friends knew, 150 what their parents knew, and 300 "likes" what their partner knew. More "likes" could even surpass what a person thought they knew about themselves. On the day that Kosinski published these findings, he received two phone calls. The threat of a lawsuit and a job offer. Both from Facebook.

Shut up about connecting with Trump's middle America
"It should be clear by now that a lot people voted for Trump as an act of irrational hostility. I think a lot of these supposedly poor, misunderstood souls in the hinterlands knew damn well that Donald Trump wasn’t gonna bring their jobs back. They just didn’t like the fact that OTHER people are now prospering. Their Trump vote was an act of aggression, a stamp of tacit approval for his campaign of hatred."

Understanding Rural America isn’t the problem
"For us “coastal elites” who understand evolution, genetics, science…nothing we say to those in fly-over country is going to be listened to because not only are we fighting against an anti-education belief system, we are arguing against God. You aren’t winning a battle of beliefs with these people if you are on one side of the argument and God is on the other. No degree of understanding this is going to suddenly make them less racist, more open to reason and facts. Telling “urban elites” they need to understand rural Americans isn’t going to lead to a damn thing because it misses the causes of the problem."
