Jared Yates Sexton, an expert on threats to democracy, will join “If America Fails?: The Coming Tyranny” on Thursday, January 13, 2022, at 8 pm ET, on the TruthWorks Network YouTube channel, for the premiere!
Sexton’s blog is Dispatches From A Collapsing State, and it’s a great way to learn more about how he sees current challenges in the U.S. and world we all share. For example, in his latest commentary, CYNICAL SELF-DESTRUCTION: THE PANDEMIC AND ZERO-SUM POLITICS, he writes:
“The constantly changing narrative among the GOP’s base and the Right Wing population is telling. Something has happened in this country that made the pandemic deadly in new and frightening ways, but it also affected the way we make sense of things, the way we approach problems and current events. It riddles our lives, pushing us further and further apart and cementing a suspicion, among many, maybe most, Americans, that we are unfortunately chained together as we run headlong at the edge of a cliff.”
