3. "They're" not going down soon because "they" are other people

altogether. Too big to operate on the front lines, they give orders from their estates.

This has been a long time building to the point that we are starting to realize how deeply and widely right-wing corruption and subversion of our systems has infiltrated. It is a direct result of the development of classes so ultrawealthy that they can purchase senators with their chump change and electorate opinion with not much more. It'll take time to undo, but our grandparents did it already, earning being called "the greatest generation," and we can too.

Btw, of course, we're not "already the fascist state we fear." Your anxiety is shared, believe me, but getting carried away with it is not exactly a good idea. 2018 is coming up fast, and we need to convince everyone to use the huge little power we all have as citizen of a free nation to make sure that can never happen.
