Some web links for today

This is disturbing: Ohio Republicans Plan Holiday Burial for American Democracy (truthout.org). Republicans are still attempting to have a one-party state (and that's not just the State of Ohio). Their love of authoritarianism and utter defeat of any opposing idea leads me to a comparison with the USSR. I don't think all of those agreeing with this policy can see where this ultimately leads. Hopefully the opposition parties will be able to challenge this in the courts. That is before the courts are also part of the one-party state.

Take the test to see where on the political compass you sit. I ended up sitting alongside of Ghandi, the Dali Lama and Nelson Mandella. Why am I not suprized?

Shows the civil liberties and democracy levels of many of the countries of the world. I can't see how US ended up with the same civil liberty ranking as Sweeden in light of this country's homophobia and belief in torture.
