Excellent by Schiff: The Rise of the Autocrats. Our challenges, both short- and long-term

Excellent long article by Schiff, including historical and foreign perspectives on the challenges America faces.

Worth a read.

This is the kind of stuff that could launch Schiff into the Presidential race.

2. There are several new ideas there

... that I hadn't seen before.

Either Schiff spent a lot of time on this or he has a great speechwriter or both. Either way he's a smart and insightful guy.

3. Excellent read

Schiff is such deep, thoughtful thinker. He somewhat reminds me of another highly respected Democratic Party statesman, George Mitchell of Maine.

4. Liberal Democracies come under great threat - will the population rise to the occasion ?

Read it again - then read it again and again - then bookmark it.

Thank you for sharing this.

Hope is on the horizon to redirect and correct the course of this lost ship - will we venture forth and grasp the chore ahead of us ? I hope and pray we do.
