Once again, you misunderstand me. I have been writing about the march toward authoritarianism we have been on for a long time as a political writer for another website. I have written already about the dangers of our surveillance state. When Trump was elected, this was the tweet I sent Obama

Tweet I sent on Election Day

I’m not sure when you got to the United States, but its levels of authoritarianism ebb and flow over time. Our jobs as Americans are to be “eternally vigilant” to creeping cancers in the government. There has always been a lot slower progress in human rights in U.S. foreign policy. Our CIA has done terrible things. Many of us try to work on that. That does not mean we turn our heads when a crisis happens in our government. Trump’s unqualified cabinet, a propaganda channel, and his temperament are already dangerous at a brand new level.
