Still coming to terms with this new reality. This is exactly what the dissenters in Nazi Germany must have felt like. They too must have lived in a combination of hope, despair, defiance and resistance. The world wasn't so interconnected, and there was no social media so they went underground.

"Constitutional morality is...what we bring to adjudication, not what we get out of it...
