Quotation of the Day

n both the civil rights era and the 21st century, the nullification impulse comes from the same place: the desire to preserve an unjust social order, to prevent society from becoming fairer and more equal. Then, as now, the tide of social change is rolling over conservatives who want to keep things just as they are. Nullification is their last-ditch effort to resist that change to the bitter end, to fight as long and as hard as they can against giving greater rights and protections to people whom they would prefer not to have them.—Adam Lee
