Remember Goodnight Moon, the children’s book about a young rabbit going to bed?
Rootstrikers, a nonpartisan network of activists seeking to get money out of politics, put together their own Goodnight-inspired eBook called Goodnight Democracy. In this video, we read it to you.
It’s like Goodnight Moon, except instead of telling the story of a rabbit saying goodnight to things in his room and outside his window, it tells the story of Americans saying goodnight to a political system that’s supposed to serve the people. And instead of making you feel warm and cozy, it’ll likely leave you feeling cheated and angry.
