We love our author Stephanie McMillan and her political cartoons. Her adorable drawing style contrasts wonderfully with the seriousness of her messages to create an unique and (dare we say) fun way to be informed.
Check out her upcoming book Minimum Security Chronicles in October for more great artwork and political commentary.

May 19, 2009A wonderful thing happens when you give up on hope, which is that you realize you never needed it in the first place. You realize that giving up on hope didn’t kill you. It didn’t even make you less effective. In fact it made you more effective, because you ceased relying on someone or something else to solve your problems—you ceased hoping your problems would somehow get solved through the magical assistance of God, the Great Mother, the Sierra Club, valiant tree-sitters, brave salmon, or even the Earth itself—and you just began doing whatever it takes to solve those problems yourself. When you give up on hope, something even better happens than it not killing you, which is that in some sense it does kill you. You die. And there’s a wonderful thing about being dead, which is that they—those in power—cannot really touch you anymore. —Derrick Jensen
