Two decades of pandemic war games failed to account for Donald Trump

Even had they though to account for a monster in the White House, I don't think they could ever have imagined a Senate with complicit monsters prepared to sell the lives of thousands upon thousands of Americans merely to maintain the wealth and power of themselves and a select and very few number of others. They might have anticipated a monster in the White House -- but what they probably could never have anticipated is the degree to which a right-wing world view would predictably devolve into an actual return to support for fascism, even in the U.S. Senate.

Republicans stopped Nixon, so one could understand how astonished they would have been had anyone told them to account for a major political party determined to undermine every effort made by them and others to save lives.


Unless they had looked back a few more decades -- a little more than five -- to another place where a similar set of events presented an example of how it can happen.
