To Mr. Trump 'it’s not morning in America, it’s a minute to midnight... Trump is not alone in making use of the facile notion that history is repeating itself. The feeling that “the world is falling apart” is easy to come by, but all chaotic times are chaotic in their own way. 'The protagonists on the streets are different, too. Anxiety and alienation in a world that seems to have left many people behind is nothing new, But in contrast to today’s Trump supporters, the civil rights and student movements of the ’60s were fueled by hope and anguish, not resentment. They did not want to Make America Great Again, they wanted to make it great at last.' 'In the manner of earlier authoritarians who sought to capitalize on widespread anxiety and resentment in order to justify the heavy hand, these Republicans proclaim that they are first responders ready to rescue us from disorder.'
