Dark Thoughts for a Tuesday

Reading some dark thoughts from The Atlantic this Tuesday morning in re the possibility of a second Trump presidency in the face of the ongoing war in Ukraine.

These two battles are inextricably linked. If America stumbles even deeper into authoritarian darkness than it already has, Ukraine is lost. If Ukraine is lost, Europe and the West face an existential threat not only to our physical security but also to our democratic civilization.

Please America. Please be collectively rational and don’t let this nightmare come true!
