MK285: #BeGone (Gays Over COVID, The Insurrection/Now What?, 10 Historical Points to Avoiding Fascism, 'On Tyranny' Book Review, White Christian Nationalism, The Inauguration)
We unpack The Insurrection further, as more horrifying details come out and what this means for us moving forward, how do we deal with radicalized white christian evangelical nationalist terrorists? And was that part of BeBest Melania? Well time to BeGone! We also bring out the shame stick (or accountability stick) for 'Gays Over COVID', and straight folks at swinger conventions. Woof. Ya'll, don't you know there is a PANDEMIC happening? And while we have dodged the bullet of authoritarianism (this time) like the killer in a horror movie, it’ll try to come back so James (he/him) highlights a few points from Timothy D. Snyder’s _On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century_ a must have book as we march forward and get to work. Plus Ben Randle (he/him) gives us his rejuvenation station tip of the week. And at the end highlights from the inauguration and Biden/Harris’ first day at the office! Can you feel a brand new day?!
