Which Way Will the Arc of Justice Bend?

Bill Moyers: “This is a moment in American history where the arc of justice will either be bent forward or it will be bent backward.“   

I’ve often heard about the good guys being on the side of history, as if justice and decency will eventually prevail; that it’s just a question of how long it will take.

There is no such long-term trend. Moyers is right; We are at at an inflection point. The arc of justice appears just as likely to bend backward into dark ages as to bend toward better days.
