Colonel Brandon was now as happy, as all those who best loved him, believed he deserved to be;—in Marianne he was consoled for every past affliction;—her regard and her society restored his mind to animation, and his spirits to cheerfulness; and that Marianne found her own happiness in forming his, was equally the persuasion and delight of each observing friend. - Jane Austen (for anonymous)

i was doing some research on john adams bc that’s the kind of girl i am.. and i found out that he was deeply unpopular because of an act he passed. they were called the alien and sedition acts. i didn’t think much of it until i read the article and this is what i found.

in the alien and sedition acts, john adams:

  • did not allow people to protest the government
  • did not allow immigrants into the US
  • did not allow freedom of the press
  • jailed lawmakers
  • deported foreigners
  • fined and imprisoned those who would “write, print, utter, or publish… any false, scandalous and malicious writing” agains the government
  • violated personal rights
  • RESTRICTED FREEDOM OF SPEECH

and it made me think… wow… i’m glad that the United States has come far so we don’t have to worry about all this….

and then i realized… this is exactly what Donald Trump is doing.

history is repeating itself. donald trump is the new john adams. spread the mf word.
