Am I watching the destruction of a society?
According to the GOP, people with mental illness should have a right to access guns, but not healthcare. Please stop this madness from spreading. You have elected for nothing less than a genocide of the poor.
If this law get's through, poor women having no family planning and no medical cover for pregnancy and birth would make the US a third-world country by world standards—regardless of how wealthy the Trumps of the world, with their erectile dysfunctions covered by public health cover, get.
Yes, I do hold those who did not vote and those who did vote for this madness accountable for the destruction of lives that was clearly going to be caused by putting these out of touch with humanity, wealthy white men in control of so many.
The premise of the book “On Tyranny” is not that Hitler is just like Trump or Trump is just like Hitler. The premise is that democratic republics usually fail and it’s useful for us to see how they fail. One of the ways a democratic republic can fail is Germany in 1933. There are plenty of other examples in the book, also from the left wing Czechoslovakia in 1948 becoming communist. The point of the book is that these things really happened over and over again and that intelligent people, no less intelligent than us, experienced them and left a record for us to learn from. So what I’m trying to do in the book is to help us to learn from that record so we don’t have events like Germany in 1933 or Czechoslovakia in 1948. Just saying “Hitler’s not like Trump” or “Trump is not like Hitler” isn’t going to save us. Learning for the past though, could.
