but that’s not all america has to be

from laura olin:

Susan Sontag: “Let’s by all means grieve together. But let’s not be stupid together. A few shreds of historical awareness might help us understand what has just happened, and what may continue to happen. ‘Our country is strong,’¬†we are told again and again. I for one don’t find this entirely consoling. Who doubts that America is strong? But that’s not all America has to be.”

ps just was on a zoom meeting where someone said their organization motto was “more is more” and have you ever heard a less thrilling motto (besides MAGA). also i just figured out how to hide your video from yourself on zoom.
