Are We Living Under A Dictator? If So, Let’s Make It Brief. (Strike!)

He’s declared a false victory — and he’s refusing to concede.

How did we get here?

Okay, sure. But is he a dictator?

Now, look — here’s the deal.

1. Don’t expect results election night. (Check.)

2. Do call it a coup. (Check.)

3. Know that coups have been stopped by regular folks.

4. Be ready to act quickly — and not alone.

5. Focus on widely shared democratic values.

6. Convince people not to freeze, or just go along.

7. Commit to law, stability, and nonviolence.

What if that doesn’t fix it?

“There are far, far better things ahead than we leave behind.” — C.S. Lewis
