The issue is not that the January 6th hearings won’t be compelling or that they won’t lay out what happened in a cogent manner, they will. The problem is 38% of the population supports fascism and, as such, they won’t care what it laid out, no matter how compelling.
The structural and systemic problems that we face aren’t going anywhere. And, what’s more, as I keep saying, even if we magically get rid of Trump, there are a dozen would-be fascist autocrats waiting to take his place.
We’re doomed. We’re fucked. Get ready. Figure out what you believe in because the next few years are going to be very, very bump and there’s nothing we can do to stop it.
