This post has resonated with people, because I wrote it in response to hearing that putting people in internment camps is not illegal, just bad form… that it could very much happen in the US because there are people willing to overlook the “bad form” part and say things like, “but there’s a precedent for it!”
Just because it’s wrong doesn’t mean someone didn’t try it before you- and it was wrong then. Why don’t you talk about precedent with George Takei and get back to me? I’ll wait.
These people are coming down on the wrong side of history, and they’re in power now. The worst part is that we let it happen.
What will be the best?
