I appreciated your essay very much, and at this point in time, I find it chilling. This is because I learned about the plot of General Valery Gerasimov to use social media to crumble Western democracies. He presented his tactic to Putin, no doubt a white supremacist, at some point before he published it in a Russian military journal in 2013. He had witnessed Middle Eastern countries undergo revolutions because of social media. He knew how to make places like the USA come to their knees. All you had to do is agitation at the social fissures that already exist. All you needed to do was get the internal factions within a “democracy” fighting online, and soon they would be in civil war. Especially the United States with its race, religion, class, immigration and political divisions. And their guns.

This Russian General has extremely keen observations that are frightening, because Russia decided to launch that cyber-war and I would don it masterful and successfully executed. They elected our President. There are something like nine openly white nationalist candidates for office right now. They have pushed this and exploded it all along the way online. And with actual dollars.

We are actually at war with not only white supremacy but also a foreign enemy exploiting our history for their own gain. This nexus of their authoritarian aims converging with the outspoken white nationalist aims of domestic Americans has me positively gobsmacked. What do good people do?
