this is the rule, not the exception, in america these days. -  i'm sure the stats are worse since the article's publishing date.

Approximately 32 million adults in the United States can't read, according to the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that 50 percent of U.S. adults can't read a book written at an eighth-grade level.

Being a former public school employee for 13 years, I am WELL aware. It’s beyond rough if you don’t live in the “right” neighborhood.

if you are someone who would call strangers to help them register, in georgia, so mitch mcconnell won't be majority leader for the next 2 years, then here are your links. 

https://votesaveamerica.com/state/georgia/

https://www.mobilize.us/crooked/event/363574/

both pages run through crooked media, aka podsaveamerica - former obama admin staffers gone organizers. they're coordinating with the local georgia organizations.

georgia voter registration ends dec 7. early voting starts dec 14. election day is jan 5. 2 of the 100 senate seats are up, and they will decide control. both republican incumbants have insider trading scandals, including trading on the pandemic while enabling republican deception on the topic, and helped to cover up trump's high crimes.

these guys are a great resource for those who participate

 

@Brisbot are you in ga? trying to remember. if so, would be curious on your take, on the ground

can someone explain how it's possible to see how bad everything is and still think liberal democracy is the solution?

We’ve tried quite a few alternatives. All of them were worse.

Lets not look at the US as some shining example of it. It's a mix of advanced states and some that are closer to developmental states. The governmental system is also outdated and isn't really able to do fundamental reforms. It's an empire in decline.

Yes the American form is outdated, but it's also the longest-standing continuous democracy. It needs reform to better represent the nation as a whole (some sort of federalism similar to what we have in Canada but better please), as well as to provide real options for political parties (like moving to some form of proportional representation voting system), and legislative reform to get rid of money in politics.

But it should be noted that while Trump and his fucking ilk are trying their level best to subvert democracy, the system so far is working as fucntioned - where the courts are putting a check on the attempt to stage a coup. So there must be something to it.
