IT CAN HAPPEN HERE

In 1935 Sinclair Lewis wrote “It Can’t happen here”, about how a populist demagogue and corrupt political system brought fascism to the United States - like voting in a right-wing party and the consequent Nazi take-over in Germany in the 1930s.

Now, 89 years later, tens of millions of Americans are eager for this dystopic vision to become reality by getting ready to again vote against democracy - for an authoritarian, populist, orange savior, a hamster-brained egomaniac, and his party of sycophants. 
The line-up of an outdated constitution, a corrupted supreme court, a dysfunctional 2-party political system, and deeply engrained racism seem to offer little reason for hope to fend off the establishment of American dictatorship. 

Yes, it can happen here, and it already is.
