The Most Dangerous Thing to a Democracy
As most of us know--the 2oth century was a century of the most dangerous wars that could have literally blown up the earth into smithereens and started with the fall of most of the world's monarchy's who had made some very bad decisions. Those decisions are now haunting the 21st century.
Among those who succeeded these monarchs were Hitler, Franco and Mussolini-- who were followed up by the horrors of Viet Nam, Mao, Cambodia and all those horrors of Africa as Idi Amen (sp?) who invited the Archbishop to dine with him-but the Archbishop failed to know that he was on the menu for the rest of the guests after he was murdered in the kitchen.
This book traces the fall of Governments and the rise and lost of democracies and the dangers that they pose for today under an irrational and unstable President Trump--who seems to want to be a dictator or absolute king and is so ignorant of the processes of law and so self centered and corrupt that he should not be President .

It warns that the stupid people here who are so caught up in celebrity rather than reason are the same people who brought the foregoing dictators to power. America is in danger of loosing the ideals of its founders to people who seek to change it to their versions of democracy--that is they are the only ones who have power and the rest of the peons do not. It warns that when only Rich people can take the reins of Government and twists its laws to their making --- something is badly wrong.
The people can change this but unfortunately the holier than thou and others who are so in love with Trump that they are blind to see how terrible this man is and how dangerous he is and they are to the Constitution of the United States.--Trump is not only his worst enemy but also the worst enemy of the American Public.
The author, a former Secretary of State, has lived through the times of Hitler and had to flee from him, as a Jew, as well as Mussolini. Her words are a strong warning against all the things that Trump has done and is doing in office--like saying nothing to Korea about continuing to violate agreements not to shoot of missles of anykind.
If you are and Americana and love this country --this book is a not only a good read but a good lesson in Government that every one should know. Trump also has some far out off the cliff followers who have actively advised him to turn this country into a fascist country which Trump has subscribed to.
