    The last line of defense against tyranny is the People.

    The first line is the counterbalancing institutions in the government itself.

    If people were better educated they would know why it’s both stupid and dangerous to elect a president who calls the media “the enemy of the people”, who values personal loyalty over competence, and who actually believes the justice department is there to protect him.
