It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye.

These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared.

But there’s one thing you can’t […]
Do you recall the National Organization for Marriage? This is the group that spent $1.9 million to make marriage equality illegal in Maine, and spent another $1.9 million to keep same-sex marriage from becoming legal in California.
