11. The reason I'm similarly worried is that in other countries that have lost

their democracy, it's not like people weren't opposed, but they still couldn't stop it. And when it happens, it happens like an avalanche.

Thinking of:

Fujimori in Peru
Orban in Hungary
Poland
Moldova
Georgia
Almost Italy (Salvini)
Bolsonaro in Brazil
Some of the weird, disturbing shit that happened in Spain when Catalonia tried to declare independence.

Maybe Duterte (not sure if it fits) in the Philippines?

As some other posters have said, this is no joke. It happens very quickly. When Hitler made his moves to consolidate power, it was fast. You only have to alter a few things, and the rest falls into place, and then it's too late.
