If We Don’t Act Now, Fascism Will Be on Our Doorstep, Says Yale Historian

Very powerful article, an interview with Timothy Snyder, author of On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century.

I’m not sure what it will take for EVERYONE to get on board. OK, forget the crazies, the dupes, and/or the morally bankrupt who still support t-rump. But what about those who think, Yeah, this is nuts, but still don’t actually DO anything about it? Those who still wonder, Well, what can I do? Or say, It won’t make a difference, or,That can’t happen here. Guess what? IT IS HAPPENING. At the same time, we ARE making a difference RESISTING. But we can’t stop or slow down or take a breath, and this article speaks to a crisis and an urgency that most of us have never had to face before.

People, face it now. Feel it. Rise up. We need to learn from history and say, NOT ON OUR WATCH. Start now, and encourage others to start now. It’s not too late, and we need EVERYONE.
