I can't get over how much this picture makes me happy, on so many levels.
I've been having anxiety for the past few weeks, peaking on the day of the immigration ban. I am quite pleased how quickly our justice system has stepped forward to do it's job.
I love the way that this is drawn. The contrast between the quiet dignity of lady justice up against the buffoonery of Trump. Using just as much strength as she needs to to hold him back, but not destroy him. Like a good mother holding back a little boy having a tantrum.
The idea of Lady Justice is not new to this country. Like democracy itself, it goes back to classical times. Justice and law is the foundation of democracy, and it's awesome to see it at work.
