Time To Read Arendt

I do hope people now reading (or claiming to read) Hannah Arendt's The Origins Of Totalitarianism also read her Crises of the Republic, which is actually already explicitly about the USA, about civil disobedience and resistance, the think-tank-ification of public life, ubiquitous political deception, and quite a lot else that is easily as applicable to the troubles of Trumpism as you'll find in the earlier book.
