I am not going to turn my blog into a mindless political rant that no one appreciates or needs, but as a historian...the tone and rhetoric coming from our new President is worrisome and chilling.
Nationalism is never a good thing....
Nationalism and patriotism are not the same thing.
Nationalism ignores the rest of the world, the world we are an important part of.
It is dangerous and the words I saw yesterday were dangerous.
I will support a free and open press.
I will support the arts and humanities.
I will continue to help spread truth and not falsehood.
