Trump 2024: Will the Media Behave this Time? 

A responsible media would ignore Trump. Or at least treat him no differently than any other candidate for office. He deserved less coverage in 2016 and 2020 than Bernie Sanders who was practically ignored by the mainstream press. It would be better to ignore the Trump lies and nonsense than to cover it and give it a shred of legitimacy and attention. The fuel that fires Trump is attention. It is how the Big Lie is spread. Resist the temptation to give what Trump wants; yet I doubt that will happen.

Preparing for a Season in the Political Wilderness  

Many of us view the future with dark foreboding.  The sense is all too grounded in fact. A hard-right turn in U.S. politics in 2022 and 2024 seems in the cards. Meanwhile, the climate catastrophe intensifies, while action to turn it around lags and many trends are in the exact wrong direction. At the same time, great powers clash, and war drums are beating louder.

The Risk of a Coup in the Next US Election is Greater Now Than It Ever Was Under Trump  

Only free and fair elections in which the loser abides by the result stand between each of us and life at the mercy of a despotic regime – one we had no voice in choosing and one that can freely violate all our rights. So everything is at stake in the peaceful transfer of power from a government that has lost its people’s confidence to its victorious successor.
