The Despotic Minority is plodding along (How To Identify The Despotic Minority, 2, 3, 4, 5) unabashed by the election results (In The Wave Strike - 2).
So, I thought I would share another writer's take on the issue, written several years before my writing on the issue of The Despotic Minority.
That writer pointed out one potential embryonic beginning of that minority:
"... with the advent of the Tea Party, the United States is experiencing the ... tyranny ... of the minority."(The Tea Party’s Dangerous Tyranny of the Minority). That article presents an apt description of a source of despotic ideology.
Remember that Toynbee pointed out the seriousness of a despotic minority:
"In the Study Toynbee examined the rise and fall of 26 civilizations in the course of human history, and he concluded that they rose by responding successfully to challenges under the leadership of creative minorities composed of elite leaders. Civilizations declined when their leaders stopped responding creatively, and the civilizations then sank owing to the sins of nationalism, militarism, and the tyranny of a despotic minority. Unlike Spengler in his The Decline of the West, Toynbee did not regard the death of a civilization as inevitable, for it may or may not continue to respond to successive challenges. Unlike Karl Marx, he saw history as shaped by spiritual, not economic forces" ...(How To Identify The Despotic Minority - 4, quoting Encyclopedia). A despotic minority and its tyranny is openly being written about in many places, which now includes the Supreme Court (Challenge to Trump's Whitaker).
Obstruction of justice is child's play to the despotic minority's Authoritarian Leader, who has bragged that they would even stick with him if he shot someone on Fifth Avenue.
He is headed there, because according to another writer, he is an accessory to murder (Donald Trump Is An Accessory To Jamal Khashoggi’s Murder, by Richard North Patterson).
One thing remaining to wonder about is whether or not the justice system is also an accessory because the DOJ refuses to indict a sitting president under any circumstances (What Does The Word "Whoever" Mean?).
