4. If this political scientist is correct, and I see no reason to question him,

we have a problem I don't think we're close to understanding. It's easy to understand--or think we understand--Proud Boys: they're nuts and cultists, we tell ourselves. We just destroy the group. But the neighbor screaming at you because you have a Biden sign in your lawn may own an insurance agency in your town. He might teach school in your district. If these are the guys drinking the Kool-Aid and taking violent action, well, I'm reminded of Pogo's great philosophical dictum: "We have met the enemy and he is us."
