I feel like I'm falling apart. Justice Ginsberg dying has just sent me into a really bad depression. I don't know why this particular defeat of all the defeats of the past 4 years is affecting me so much, but it's just like... I feel hopeless.

The constitution says what ever the republicans want it to say now, and I don't think that will change before I die.

I've been spoiled living in a society where social progress was a constant. Now, I expect I will have fewer civil rights in 20 years than I do now.

and the worst part is, this happened because the republicans cheated. i was always taught that cheaters never prosper. That's naive bullshit. Everything the republicans have at this point they have gained by cheating and deception. Their immoral behavior is clearly the superior political strategy.

Ethics, like laws, exist for the benefit of the powerful. They do not constrain the powerful in any way, since the powerful are too powerful for society to punish, but they absolutely constrain the non-powerful, because society will punish them.

Protestors are expected to be non-violent and are punished for being so, but Trump's administration can literally commit acts of genocide and half the people in american society will praise it and reward it.

and so, we learn the true ethics of society. The marginalized are punished for that which the powerful are praised. The only real ethical principle of society is that might is always right.

if you want to be seen as moral, get really good at hurting people and getting away with it. Do this well enough and people will think you are the second coming of christ.
