Authoritarian

Ellen Huguelet Arnold, Thank you for sharing your thoughtful note. Unlike numerous elections I have experienced, this is the first time I am asking questions such as “Is anticipatory obedience to authritarianism the silent killer of democracy?” and “Am I turning into the hyperbolic conspiracy theorists I have rolled my eyes at for years?” …. It is hard to give the President-elect the open mind you suggest when historically authoritarian leaders don’t give up power. I am in a unpleasant state of suspense over whether or not Trump will give up power in 4 or 8 years.
