Assume for a sec that the US is in the midst of a constitutional crisis (it is). Notice how the stores are still open, your bus completed its usual route & the game still on? That’s what makes genuine crises terrifying, bc they (co)exist for so long within our normal exp of life.
They continue to do so all up until the point that they don’t. When the news is no longer something you can turn off, when it’s on your street, at your kid’s school, in your community, it’s too late for “resistance”. Then it’s largely a matter of individual survival.
That’s why both scholars of authoritarianism/sectarianism and/or survivors of such regimes have implored you to organize & inform yourself now, when it is/was still “normal”, when it’s still “someone else’s” child, when it’s a Q of archaic rules of order.
The last two days have brought credible allegations of major dysfunction & crisis w/in the USG. There are fundamental Qs re the integrity/legitimacy of the 2016 elxns. It’s unclear what, if any, steps have been taken to secure the mid-terms. Above all...
...the fact that it is unclear who is, genuinely, in charge, what the civilian/military chain of command is, what would happen in event of a major security crisis suggests the situation has already catastrophically deteriorated.
Until there is a concerted & consistent civil society & Congressional effort to restore accountability & leadership in the WH, it is difficult to see any of this ending w/o major instability of sort unlike anything Americans have seen in generations & possibly ever. /xxx
