I was made aware of your May 17 editorial “An accommodating GOP, Trump are transforming America into a dictatorship” when it was posted on education scholar Diane Ravitch’s blog.
Thank you for making the strongest case and clearest analysis I have yet read about the international catastrophe in the White House. It heartened a pessimistic soul more than you will ever know.
After reading the editorial three times, I know now, more than ever, that I’m not alone.
As an amateur German-American historian who has been a lifelong student of the Weimar Republic, I never thought I’d experience it here. You have given me a glimmer of hope.
