Everyday Dissidence

And, less we forget, John McCain’s biggest blunder.

If you had criticized slavery or child labor or advocated women’s suffrage in America in the wrong time or place, you could have been handcuffed, and lucky at that… Dissent can be a dicey business. If it’s not at least a bit uncomfortable, it’s probably not real dissidence.

—Edward Hoagland
