Boris Nemtsov Murdered
The prime suspect orders a thorough investigation.
Liberalism and liberal values of Liberty and Equality are challenged and attacked everywhere these days, including the good ol' USA. Supremacism in the forms of nationalism, social Darwinism, and religious fanaticism threatens to roll back and end the liberal vision of universal enfranchisement.
I am grateful for people like Nemtsov who for all their flaws and weaknesses, are willing to give the last full measure of their devotion to the idea that all of their neighbors should enjoy the same rights and liberties as themselves.
Without those ideas fellow LGBTQ kids, we'd all be in jail waiting to be "treated" and euthanized.
