A long Sunday must-read: “Trump is an extinction-level event.”


In the past, I’ve agreed and disagreed with Andrew Sullivan. In this essay, there is room for honest debate; however, this isn’t my aim at present.

I have friends who are supporting Donald Trump. Obviously, you know who you are. Can you read this, and tell me your thoughts?

What is your rebuttal?

Democracies end when they are too democratic … and right now, America is a breeding ground for tyranny, by Andrew Sullivan (New Yorker)

… For Trump is not just a wacky politician of the far right, or a riveting television spectacle, or a Twitter phenom and bizarre working-class hero. He is not just another candidate to be parsed and analyzed by TV pundits in the same breath as all the others. In terms of our liberal democracy and constitutional order, Trump is an extinction-level event. It’s long past time we started treating him as such.
