The two main political parties in this country are not the same. Recently we both had a conversation with a friend who suggested that he didn’t need to concern himself with politics because both parties were exactly the same. In the first half of the show, we identify some of the right’s policies, ideologies, and culture that led to the RWDS (Right Wing Death Squad) and has radicalized a group of far-right individuals to carry out mass shooting attacks.
In the second half of the show, we discuss the lack of accountability on the right and how it affects the nature of politics in general as well as the ripple effect it has on our country as a whole.

About Civic Cipher
Civic Cipher is a weekly radio show hosted by Ramses Ja and Q. Ward. This show is dedicated to empowering Black and Brown voices, allowing them to engage directly with their communities as well as the general population. Self-determination is critical to securing a future free of oppressive systems, and Civic Cipher exists to facilitate discussions toward this end. Furthermore, Civic Cipher seeks to inform non-POC allies who may not be privy to these types of discussions and optics. Finally, Civic Cipher seeks to provide long-form conversations in spaces where there is often a lack of significant resources, potent dialogue, or the necessary engagement for facilitating a healthy and productive civil discourse.
