      Great article. For more on the development of the current racist buzzwords, explore Derek Black.

      A very beefy political history of America’s two-party problem. Washington’s warning is still salient.

      This article goes deep with a really interesting history of political parties in America. Highly recommended!

      It's encouraging to be reminded that these organizations don't last forever. I wouldn't mourn the loss of either of the current major parties. I think we can do a lot better.
