The New Fascism

LETTERS – June 10, 2017

Politics has always been a contact sport, but the Trump administration has purposely broken rules and norms. I like to believe that a fascist party could not be elected to power, but now I reluctantly realize it could happen in America.

Respect for the Constitution could save us, but the turbulence is wrenching. Winston Churchill lamented the unteachability of mankind and the endless repetition of history. He also suggested we should act when it would be simple and effective. That time is now.
