11. Other countries have gone completely over the edge. Many times, and within living memory.

It's the height of magical thinking, or belief in American exceptionalism to think that such things can't happen here.

I worry about total societal breakdown, and the possibility of unspeakable violence happening here. Just like has happened in so many other places.
