3. They don't need people?

I beg to differ. American capitalism may no longer have much need for workers, but it still needs consumers. Unless MAGA wants to try a takeover of the entire world -- with virtually no chance of success -- they still need Americans to shell out cash for whatever crap they're purveying.

And let's not forget that we have a country that was conceived in revolution, albeit not a proletarian revolution. Assuming that they do succeed in bringing actual fascism to the American body politic -- which is a very shaky assumption -- I would give it at most a generation before violent revolution ensues.
