But seriously, for those of you who call me chicken little, this is what you need to understand, and this is why America is heading toward its inevitable collapse. There will be no unified stand against right wing authoritarianism. The growth of the political independents, the modern political know nothings, is the result of concerted efforts to destroy faith in democratic leadership and institutions by the right wing. As a result, centrists and leftists will fight each other, while the right wing eventually executes a hostile takeover of the country.
