Canada fears US will be right wing dictatorship by 2030

This article says a lot about the way the rest of the world views what is happening in the USA.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/jan/03/us-rightwing-dictatorship-2030-trump-canada

Quotes from Thomas Homer-Dixon, founding director of the Cascade Institute at Royal Roads University in British Columbia.

“We mustn’t dismiss these possibilities just because they seem ludicrous or too horrible to imagine,”

“In 2014, the suggestion that Donald Trump would become president would also have struck nearly everyone as absurd. But today we live in a world where the absurd regularly becomes real and the horrible commonplace.”

“By 2025, American democracy could collapse, causing extreme domestic political instability, including widespread civil violence. By 2030, if not sooner, the country could be governed by a rightwing dictatorship.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think many of us have seen this possibility coming for years, but to see this bluntly expressed by our neighbor to the North is truly sobering.
