“Diverse personal narrative has never been more important than it is in proto-Trump America – in a country where so many are willing to throw away the rights of the “other” for the illusion of safety, storytelling is our most straightforward empathy generator, a humanization machine.

“If you’re smart and you get old, all you know is that everything changes. You’re not in control of anything. If you don’t learn that early, you’re going to be fucked. No, really… you can rail it all you like. It’s like the last railings of [these] people.
