Take a 9/11 Break . . . With Puppies!


It’s been a rough slog of a decade since 9/11. Hard to look back at that day and all the icky, gloomy things that followed without feeling really, really tired. May we recommend a puppy break? The somber eulogies and ponderous reflections will still be going when you get back, we promise.

Ready to read on? We recommend David Corn on what 9/11 didn’t change, a proposal to cancel today’s ceremonies, and a deep data dive into how the FBI is fighting—or creating—terror cases since the attacks.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
