New blog post! Election PTSD and Aversion to Hope http://www.deusexmachinatio.com/blog/2020/10/16/election-ptsd-and-aversion-to-hope
@andrhia I love this line the most: “you can’t create what you don’t dare to imagine”.
I have been thinking about this a lot lately, because I’m up for election today against an ultra-conservative party who only need to take the seat I’m going for to win state government.
But we ran this campaign on the most ambitious progressive policy platform we’ve ever taken to an election, because we imagine a world where things are better than they were before 2020. We needed hope, so we made our own.
