How to Survive

The news about the fascist tangelo just gets worse every day.  It's easy to give in to despair, but don't do it. Get busy instead.  And keep your eyes on the prize: saving democracy.

Ian Millhiser at Think Progress:
Similarly, every American should read Yale History Professor and Holocaust scholar Timothy Snyder’s “20-point guide to defending democracy under a Trump presidency.” 
Among his most important words of advice are “do not obey in advance,” to be wary if the Trump regime attempts to use a terrorist attack or similar tragedy to consolidate its power, and to adhere — especially if you are a lawyer, judge, government worker or other individual who may be called upon to shepherd Trump’s goals into fruition — to professional ethics.
