A Trump Second Term: Tyranny by Another Name 

The United States is fast approaching a tipping point. Consider the following: A coordinated mobilization of armed militias threatens elected officials in Democratic states, with open White House backing; The most powerful member of the national legislature interferes in judicial appointments to gain his party permanent dominance over this branch of government; A top official who has admitted his guilt in a major breach of national security is released from prosecution by the nation’s chief judicial officer.These attacks on democratic norms should have rung every alarm we have. But more than three years of Trump’s transgressions have numbed much of the progressive base. The steps outlined above document a clear and present danger: whatever `democracy’ we have acquired, through enormous struggle, is now on the line.
