28. No, l do not think we are any closer to a dictatorship. It may appear

so only because the possibility has been more widely perceived. Admittedly our institutions have been weakened and corruption is rampant, but the basic value of what America is really all about, despite the barrage of lies and betrayal of the Republicans, remains essentially intact. That does not mean there are not more dangerous times ahead. tRump will increasingly be behaving like a cornered criminal, and he is capable of doing anything to try to ensure his wealth and survival. There are still vital groups of good people in government.
