Music is a lot more than what you turn up at the end of the day.
We’ve found evidence of music as old as early human cave paintings, and its spread and changed alongside cultures the world over. It has deep healing powers, too: It can help people with brain injuries learn to speak again and help patients with Parkinson's move more fluidly.
So what makes it so universal — and powerful? We explore in the final episode of our @Netflix show. Visit Netflix.com/Explained to watch. #music
Authoritarianism has taken over Hungary. A fence lines the border to keep out migrants and refugees. The government controls the airwaves. The ruling party has packed the courts. Corruption reigns.
Slowly and subtly, democracy died.
It’s an example that shows us what could happen when a ruthless, anti-minority populist backed by a major political party is allowed to govern unchecked, and Americans need to pay attention. Vox’s Zack Beauchamp went to Hungary to learn how it happened. Read his full report at the link in our bio.

At first glance, President Trump and Vladimir Putin seem to have wildly different communication styles. But what they share is a tendency to repeat big, obvious lies — a tactic researchers have dubbed the “firehose of falsehood,” whether it’s lying about Russian troops in Crimea or falsely claiming millions of people voted illegally during the 2016 election. And it’s all because firehosing isn’t actually about persuasion. It’s about power.

Barack Obama stepped back into the fray on Friday with a ferocious speech aimed squarely at not only his successor in the White House, but the entire Republican Party.
In a speech at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the ex-president uttered the name “Donald Trump” for the first time in public since Trump’s inauguration. He chastised a politics of fear and resentment, but argued that Trump himself was “a symptom, not the cause.” We outlined the 7 most important moments of his speech at the link in our bio. #Obama #politics
