Once again, minority-president Donald Trump and Republicans are marching our country towards the fifth century, away from science, and distant from our greatest allies. After having insulted European allies during his foreign trip (and kissing up to Saudis), Trump has announced that he will pull the US from the Paris Climate Agreement.
And so, our job gets harder. We must act as both citizens and consumers to create the change we want. Consider this a reminder of what happens when too many of us treat voting as a courting ritual rather than a civic duty, and when when we fetishize "outsider" status over qualifications.
