A dream of power, an awakening to destruction

Timothy Synder, Yale history professorThinking About newsletter on Substack: “How the events of last January 6 put the existence of the United States in question…Democrats have a lot to think about in the months to come. They need to do two things at the same time: hinder the collapse of democracy by defending voting rights, while explaining that everything is getting better thanks to policy. Both of those things make sense, but they are hard to do at the same time. But it is Republicans, and those who fund them, who really need to have a thoughtful conversation. Are elections just games, where you take your ball and go home when you don’t win? Is politics just a dream of power, where everything is permitted? Following such a dream to its end means awakening to the reality that the United States has ceased to be. “
