Impulsive, Authoritarian Populism

Cassidy-AnImpulsiveAuthoritarianIsolationistInTheWhiteHouse

Here’s the thing. Laugh. Yawn. Snarl. But the fact is, AntiFa, white supremacists and Trump are all employing exactly the same tactics. For much the same reason.

They all want a political climate where they can be free to do whatever they want. Without serious recrimination (as in, anything that makes any difference to them).

This requires that they completely discredit the notion that government works. Which, in turn, demands that they spike the serious work of the genuine reformers. And instead engage in tactics which promote utter chaos and confusion.

Go on. Tell me I’m wrong …
