Week 48: Experts in authoritarianism advise to keep a list of things subtly changing around you, so…
Amy Siskind

This list is conspicuously one-sided and very negative. Not a great way of keeping track of all of the things happening around you.

It’s an interesting idea though. What question will it answer, I wonder? I imagine the purpose of it is to have a reference so that when something really big happens, you can revisit this list and see all of the smaller things that led up to it. But imagine if (god forbid) Trump gets re-elected. I don’t think this list and those before it will be very resourceful in answering why that came to pass.

It’s probably more beneficial for you to consider more than just the narrow scope of things that you’ve chosen to keep track of here.
