Our constitutional crisis is already here

Our constitutional crisis is already here

A chilling essay. With every major point it makes, you feel inclined to dismiss it as alarmist — only to realise it’s argued too convincingly. The gist: Trump will run again in 2024. The groundwork for him to take power again, no matter what, is being laid. And time is running out to take measures to ensure a fair election. «The destruction of democracy might not come until November 2024, but critical steps in that direction are happening now. […] A Trump victory is likely to mean at least the temporary suspension of American democracy as we have known it.»
