In Both Sides Now, author and ethicist Leslie Cannold presents two sides of an argument and then it’s over to you: what do you think is true, and what do you think Cannold really believes?

Today: Texan Democrats have walked out of the state legislature stalling a voter suppression bill. It’s clear they are passionate about what they're doing, and are sure they're right. But does that give the minority party the right to play silly buggers with the rules so the majority can’t pass laws?

Yes: Breaking the rules when it comes to voting is hard but necessary. No: Destroying democracy to defend it won’t work and isn’t right. It also makes you a hypocrite.
