          October 23, 2016
    
          In fact, they've been doing scientific research since the days of Florence Nightingale

          Sympathy for the Devil?
    
          October 23, 2016
    
          The numbers will be clear: downscale whites are a big pool of untapped votes. Yet if a cordon sanitaire is placed around that demographic territory and hung with the notorious label, “Trump Vote,” the Democrats will be even more likely to let the party system drift down its current path: into the culture-war politics of the reactionary Tammany-versus-Klan 1920s, rather than the class-based politics that followed.

          Why Trump&#039;s Male Chauvinism Appeals to Some Voters More Than Others
    
          October 23, 2016
    
          Assuming that not even Donald Trump can destroy American democracy, the real challenge begins for whoever is sworn in as president on January 20 2017.

          Voter Suppression Is a Much Bigger Problem Than Voter Fraud
    
          October 23, 2016
    
          Trump’s rigged election lies distract from the real threat to American democracy. You’re more likely to be struck by lightning than impersonate another voter at the polls.  The real danger to American democracy stems from GOP efforts to make it harder to vote.

          Black Mirror&#039;s New Season is Excellent — And Disturbingly Close to Reality
    
          October 23, 2016
    
          One of Black Mirror’s great accomplishments is that it can make you feel rotten dread about where the most mundane parts of your life could take you in 10 years — your smartphone, your Facebook account, your TV.
