Good commentary on the use of “fascism” and “theocracy” as scare words since the election. I didn’t like the outcome much myself, but I’ve been surprised by how fragile folks seem to think our Republic is. America as we know it will change — it always is changing — and perhaps become something we cannot stand, but I personally doubt we’ve reached a point where drastic change can come in with a bang, rather than sneaking slowly past with a whimper.
