Yes, a very serious question. Without fundamental economic and organizational change the drift to authoritarianism will accelerate as unemployment rises. This is the worst possible time as the US is in serious decline with structural political failure and chaos growing from both military imperialism and a completely unsustainable economic model. Hence my focus on rethinking post industrial society. We need effect major change by leveraging the changes tearing the old system apart to achieve a new level of individual sovereignty. I can’t see any other viable option to prevent the complete loss of rights.
