The Problem of Ignorance

You know her on Twitter as @KStreetHipster (and if you don’t, what is wrong with you?), and now she has a blog. On her very first post on ignorance and other things, she does a great job of explaining the fundamental problem with the disenfranchisement of the residents of the District of Columbia, who face the same issues as the territories when it comes to representation in Congress.

From the piece:

“We do not live in a democracy. We live at the whim of the rest of the country’s wishes to inflict upon us whatever laws they wish while at the same time blaming my city for their troubles. “

Switch territory for city, and you have the status problem of Puerto Rico and the other territories summarized. A great read and must follow blog (even if it isn’t on Medium).
