Following Trump and Barr into Autocracy, Reviewing Masha Gessen’s “Autocracy: Rules for Survival”


Reading Time: 5 minutes
If you are as worried sick as I am about the fate of our democracy, then you’ll want to read my review of Masha Gessen’s 2016 article, Autocracy: Rules for Survival that was published in The New York Review of Books. When we compare her six rules to the sorry state of affairs, real despair sets in.

They want the fixed elections. They want the incompetent judges. They want oligarchy. They want authoritarianism.Putin has sold them on the Russian system of corrupt governance. Putin has bought and paid for them. They no longer hold democratic values.

Reading time: 9 minutes!?! OUCH! There are lots of heading, though, so you can skip around and find the juiciest most interesting parts.
Climate change news just keeps getting worse. And, until we reach some kind of happy equilibrium — that’s a population of about 500,00 human beings, BTW — with planet earth, it probably will just keep getting worse, too. I mean, as bad as it is right now, when billions of people begin dying, that will be worse. So, what happens when the worst happens? Unfortunately, even more bad stuff: violence and cruelty
