    From the right: The NFL’s Social-Justice Debacle Protests and political statements have transformed the National Football League from “the glue that gave a guy sitting in his game room in East Palestine, Ohio, a deep connection with a guy in a penthouse in Manhattan” to “a social-justice organization that was no longer holding them together,”...

            by Brian Dijkema  It is no coincidence that what finally broke the Soviet Union was a Catholic trade union — a group of shipyard workers, led by an electrician and motivated by a faith that their oppressors deemed an opiate.
