18 Theses on the Reactionary
In times such as these, with the ascent of reactionary politics the world over our capacity to grasp what is progressive hinges on our ability to identify that which is not so.

This part of Trump’s appeal, he says the things he’s not supposed to--not because he’s a truth teller but because he’s shameless. He made the conservative movement realize that they didn’t have to pretend to love their fellow citizens, they could be shameless too.

Top 10 balanced News channels or websites in India on which you can trust.
Fake news is always a big problem in almost every country but there is media to curb this.
