America's fragile democracy

Authoritarianism is the only way anyone can keep the pendulum from swinging. A painful majority of Americans don't currently agree with the current arch of history. That shows in laws, the court, elections. Do you want to blow America up to prevent that? I think you surely do? When folks say "democracy is fragile" I believe that means "our plans are fragile" rather than American republican representative democracy (where the chips fall where they may) is fragile. That democracy isn't fragile. But that durable democracy does include presidents like Trump and justices like Kavanaugh, which is #notmyamerica which means that sort of democracy is as fragile as hell unless America implements authoritarianism. Then, America's democracy will be fucked but the liberal vision for America will be as sound as a pound. Amen.
