Here's hoping the challenge to this rule change by senators Wyden and Coons succeed.

A letter to today’s young people


Marco Arment:

... do everything you can to help, support, and stand up for the millions of people whose country just let them down, many of whom live in homes and communities that have just become unwelcoming or unsafe. We’ll get our chance to repair the damage and move forward again, and you’ll bring us there. Hang in there.

I absolutely loved this.
