24. this is how autocrats rise

They exhaust the good people with outrage after outrage.

I recommend getting the slim book by Yale holocaust historian Timothy Snyder: "On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons From The Twentieth Century".

Just $7.95. Essential reading for this moment. He tells us what to look for and how to be.

Two things that ANYONE can do right now. Join the ACLU for the price of a couple of coffee drinks and lend your voice to the cause of liberty. And defend our free watchdog press as reporters stand between the people and tyranny every freaking day as they cover this presidency.

Your voice is important. We can be in the "streets" via keyboard advocacy for causes we value.

Hold on.
