Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.

Recharge is back after a week offline. Did we miss much? Anything? Oh. Devastating news: “The Stuff of Nightmares.” “US Is Headed in ‘Wrong Direction’ on COVID-19.” “Floods.” “Petty Fascism.” “Catastrophic Summer.” “Prison Population Is Growing.” “Cashing in on Disinformation.” “6 Weeks in the Hospital.” “Environmental Damage.” “Overturn Roe v. Wade.” Welcome back!

Pick-me-ups abound, too, so don’t skimp on the other end of the ledger, but I’m thinking a big-picture boost is in order to enter the week, something more fundamentally fortifying than a sugar-high recharge. Here’s just the thing: Daily Radical History. I’m not saying you’ve gotta glue yourself to Twitter, but DRH is solid. It feeds daily doses of radical revolutionary headlines, from anniversaries to key milestones in the struggle for justice, democracy, and human rights broadly defined. Not every tweet is a recharge (some surface trauma and tragedy), but many show how change is made and gains are secured. It’s an aggregate portrait of progress, resistance, solidarity, and strength, if you need all four.

Bracing for the week. Share your daily boosts at recharge@motherjones.com.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
