On this authoritarianism business II

By the way, there’s probably a distinction to make between what might make for a study of preference movement to strongmen in times of acute societal duress and then the study of people who might actually prefer political authoritarianism because free society doesn’t embrace what the smart set deems as proper.

At the Obama DOJ they are gaming out how to silence climate change ‘deniers’ through govt conducted civil lawfare.


I don’t know what might have stopped the suits to this point except that the first amendment speech protections of said deniers are fairly obvious and solid.  Maybe DOJ will go ahead when they get a 5th liberal vote on SCOTUS eh.
