About the Comic

The goal of Laws and Sausages is to be a comic about politics, without the politics. We aim to give American readers of all political persuasions the intellectual tools with which to understand their government’s history, philosophy, and mechanics. We aim to be the civics education you either never got or chose to ignore.

Laws and Sausages will update every 2 weeks with at least 3 pages on a single topic. We intend to cover history, theory, individual people, individual events, important literature, and anything else that might help readers understand, or at least be amused by, their institutions.

What to Do if You Disagree on Something Specific

If you think we’re factually wrong about something, please email us and we’ll make a correction if we feel it’s warranted as soon as we can.

What to Do if You Think We’re Morons and/or Villains

If you think our interpretation/understanding of something is wrong, do feel free to email. BUT, what we really encourage you to do is help connect us to a respected scholar or authority who disagrees with us and might like to make their case as a guest “speaker” on Laws and Sausages. We recognize that we (or, at least, Greg) are imperfect and limited beings. To the extent we cannot make this an impartial webcomic, we intend to at least make it a place for diverse and well-reasoned discourse.
