‘There need to be mass protests’: Authoritarianism experts say time is running out for Americans to stop Trump

Westlake Legal Group HJfWTDlOe_m3PcycBQOYwWc-S0ofxjtuLey9q9qFbcI 'There need to be mass protests': Authoritarianism experts say time is running out for Americans to stop Trump r/politics

Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. You don’t want to act, or even talk, alone; you don’t want to ‘go out of your way to make trouble.’ Why not?—Well, you are not in the habit of doing it. And it is not just fear, fear of standing alone, that restrains you; it is also genuine uncertainty.

… But the one great shocking occasion, when tens or hundreds or thousands will join with you, never comes. That’s the difficulty. If the last and worst act of the whole regime had come immediately after the first and smallest, thousands, yes, millions would have been sufficiently shocked—if, let us say, the gassing of the Jews in ’43 had come immediately after the ‘German Firm’ stickers on the windows of non-Jewish shops in ’33. But of course this isn’t the way it happens. In between come all the hundreds of little steps, some of them imperceptible, each of them preparing you not to be shocked by the next. Step C is not so much worse than Step B, and, if you did not make a stand at Step B, why should you at Step C? And so on to Step D.

And one day, too late, your principles, if you were ever sensible of them, all rush in upon you. The burden of self-deception has grown too heavy, and some minor incident, in my case my little boy, hardly more than a baby, saying ‘Jewish swine,’ collapses it all at once, and you see that everything, everything, has changed and changed completely under your nose. The world you live in—your nation, your people—is not the world you were born in at all. The forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the houses, the shops, the jobs, the mealtimes, the visits, the concerts, the cinema, the holidays. But the spirit, which you never noticed because you made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, is changed. Now you live in a world of hate and fear, and the people who hate and fear do not even know it themselves; when everyone is transformed, no one is transformed. Now you live in a system which rules without responsibility even to God. The system itself could not have intended this in the beginning, but in order to sustain itself it was compelled to go all the way.”

—Milton Mayer, They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45

Yang: I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is

Westlake Legal Group HE1gOCCayGYTmft3nWr0tspX2m0rzntsX_TDw47bshs Yang: I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is r/politics

Yang seemed to have a lot of great ideas that many candidates didn’t have

I see people say this, but other than UBI what unique idea did he have? All his other ideas had at least one other candidate proposing the same or similar (and often before he adopted it). I mean, I guess the abolishment of the penny was something unique to him, but that’s such a minor policy that most people won’t care.

Everytime I ask YangGang, they try to say Democracy Dollars, but that idea is not new. Other candidates in the past have had it, and even Sanders proposed something like it about thrity or so years ago. And Bernie has a similar policy on his platform this year as well.

So what other policies? The American Scorecard might be one, but that’s literally just a change in how we say things, not much else.

More Than 50,000 People Sign Petition Demanding Investigation Into DOJ’s Roger Stone Reversal As Prosecutors Resign

Westlake Legal Group RtXKqFvQmb8ouHtgWzUAOkcAlTLDPN8iWq0hxjW47V8 More Than 50,000 People Sign Petition Demanding Investigation Into DOJ's Roger Stone Reversal As Prosecutors Resign r/politics

Unfortunately it’s more of an escalating pattern than a repeating one.

Mueller tells everyone Trump probably committed crimes but can’t be investigated or indicted while he’s president, only impeachment can check his power.

Trump goes and commits more crimes. Gets impeached, gets off on partisan lines, now the message is there is no check on his power whatsoever except elections.

The message we’ve arrived at is Trump can basically do whatever he wants until he’s voted out of office. There’s nowhere further to go here except jailing political opponents or calling off elections, because that is the final and sole check on his power that remains, and obviously it’s going to be in his crosshairs even more now for exactly that reason.

And I seriously hope it doesn’t get that far, but at this point “hope” is the best I can say.
