As should this photo, by Виктория Халиуллина (Victoria Halyullina). It depicts the pro-Navalny protest in Yekaterinburg.
The protesters were forced to walk across the frozen lake. If you zoom in, in the bottom-left corner there's a building with the sign saying:
"WHO ARE WE? WHERE FROM, AND WHERE TO ARE WE GOING?"
The symbolism is so strong it hurts.
This photo by Chris Niedenthal was taken at the beginning of martial law in communist Poland, in 1981.
It is packed with symbolism. The armored personnel carrier is in the foreground, on the backdrop of the "Moskwa" ("Moscow") cinema with Apocalypse Now banner (translated in Polish as "Time of Apocalypse").
It became an icon, a screenshot of the political moment.
Case in point!
However, because it was clear that the "that's political, therefore bad" angle wouldn't work this time, the esteemed interlocutor went for a different, remarkably sophisticated strategy.
What's interesting is how sex-positive a strategy it is!
We have to be clear: the reason the coup failed wasn't because of how strong US democracy is (it clearly isn't); rather, it was because how moronic everyone involved in it was.
This is scary. The next wannabe authoritarian leader will not be an incompetent racist buffoon.

Also, please note that technically my hair color means I am a...
...ginger bread man.
This is a bit of an API documentation for @wallabag. It deals with plenty of very specific headers and parameters that need to be gotten exactly right. It is important that it is intelligible and readable.
So, the developers decided to go for white text on white background. With text shadow, as a way of (guessing here!) increasing readability.
In fact, it doesn't help with white-on-white, and makes everything else look blurred.
My question is: why?..
