SUMMARY ✓ On Tyranny Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century Th century to provide hope for the twenty first As he writes “Americans are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism Nazism and communism Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience” Twenty Lessons is a call to arms and a guide to resistance with invaluable ideas for how we can preserve our freedoms in the uncertain years to co Please give my review a helpful vote on sad example of how ideology distorts scholarshipI purchased this expecting a thoughtful discussion about the lessons that an academic can draw from 20th century totalitarianism I was hopeful about something insight and depth from the author of Bloodlands which did a really good job of bracketing Nazism and Communism into a coherent narrative This is not that book To save those who might not know author Timothy Snyder s central thesis is that the current Republican President is Literally Hitler Of course this should probably not come as a surprise Every Republican president is Literally Hitler during their tenure and then they are rehabilitated as the Model of Bipartisanship to be used against the next Republican President who is Literally Hitler George Bush is now in the middle of rehabilitation as the Model of Bipartisanship but there are those of us who remember that not so long he was BushitlerI expected betterI wanted to give Snyder some credit for some his observations Some of his points about tyranny are classic and memorableUnfortunately I have to wonder where he was for the last eight years During the last eight years many people of faith have felt that they were under the heels of a tyranny that threatened to divide us from the rest of America and make us give up our freedom of conscience in order to avoid governmental oppression The 2016 presidential campaign began let us remember with the perennial Democrat shill George Stephanopolous asking an off the wall uestion about contraception Pretty soon we saw a presidential campaign largely framed around the idea that Catholics were UnAmerican dissenters who irrationally refused to pay for contraception The Little Sisters of Poor were reuired to toss a pinch of incense to appease abortion lest they face draconian penalties that would end their historic mission of caring for the poor Likewise we saw the government centralize and make a grab for a substantial part of the economy with that mis named Affordable Health Care Act that carried with the unprecedented intrusion into personal life and personal decision making by reuiring that Americans divert upwards of 20% of their income into the purchase of health insurance to the enrichment of insurance companiesAlthough any of this could be described uite easily as fascist we heard nothing from SnyderLikewise the last eight years has seen an unprecedented normalization of hostility to free speech as colleges have instituted speech codes and rules against triggering and have assaulted and intimidated people who didn t adhere to the progressive lineBut again nothing from SnyderDuring the last presidential campaign we saw videos of the loser s side attacking hitting punching throwing things at and assaulting those on the president s side We ve seen riots in the aftermath of an election and attempt to get Electors to violate their oathsOne might have seen in this the image of Brownshirts and the destruction of democracy by ignoring the spirit of the law but again nothing from SnyderSimilarly we remember that under the former president the IRS was used in an unprecedented way to harass and target conservatives One might view this as an unhealthy fascist tendencyBut again crickets from SnyderIt is an interesting feature of Snyder s slim book which is easily read in a single sitting that it is so conservative For example Snyder gives teh very good advice that institutions should be defended uite right but notice this from his bookIt is institutions that help us to preserve decency They need our help as well Do not speak of our institutions unless you make them yours by acting on their behalf Institutions do not protect themselves They fall one after the other unless each is defended from the beginning So choose an institution you care about a court a newspaper a law a labor union and take its sideThat is good advice but I was amused at what his advice omitted My amusement stemmed from my lengthy reading into the Kirchenkampfe Snyder omits churches Obviously churches were a major institution in the resistance against totalitarianism although Snyder seems to omit this point In a later section he manages explains how Polish workers allied with atheist scholars to bring down Polish Communism without mentioning John Paul II or the Catholic Church The Catholic Church gets one reference here when Snyder observesThe one example of successful resistance to communism was the Solidarity labor movement in Poland in 1980 81 a coalition of workers and professionals elements of the Roman Catholic Church and secular groupsElements As if the Primate of Poland the Bishops of Poland and the Pope were just elements And this is from a history professorI have to wonder about this Is it just the case that a Yale professor lives in such a secular bubble that he edits the data to form his arguments Or is it the case that he wanted to stay away from the tyranny of the prior eight years Or is he simply an urban elite entirely out of touch with the country that voted for the president I found this to be a not very edifying example of scholarshipSo Snyder is strangely uiet about one kind of institution but he is very conservative in his demand that everyone pay proper deference to the press and support it with money and loyalty And here again one wonders where Snyder has been for the last sixteen years It has come to the point where everyone knows that the mainstream press is an arm of one political party which isn t that of the current president Even Communist China has pointed out that media was biased in favor the loser The press has an approval rating lower than that of a cold sore s because people have seen the press blatantly misrepresent facts The time is long gone when the press can t be fact checked in real time and stories that were run during the prior administration can t be found by a simple internet search and set against current stories to show the slanting and bias of press coverageOn the other hand the most independent and professional reporting is often found among amateur bloggers who have real experience and while they may have a bias are not pretending that they don tSnyder would properly have compared the modern mainstream press to the Gleischaltung version of the press that existed in 1933 Germany if he wanted to make a fair comparisonGiven the revelation through Wiki leaks that there were media members who running their stories past the Clinton campaign Gleischaltung is not too strong a wordHere is another example17 Listen for dangerous words Be alert to the use of the words extremism and terrorism Be alive to the fatal notions of emergency and exception Be angry about the treacherous use of patriotic vocabularyHow about racist Or homophobe Or IslamaphobeSuch things do exist but it seems to me that Snyder is entirely unaware of how dangerous words are used by his tribe to stifle speech and mark people as outcastsHere is an example where Snyder goes unhinged14 Establish a private life Nastier rulers will use what they know about you to push you around Scrub your computer of malware on a regular basis Remember that email is skywriting Consider using alternative forms of the internet or simply using it less Have personal exchanges in person For the same reason resolve any legal trouble Tyrants seek the hook on which to hang you Try not to have hooksThis may be good advice but Snyder is injecting poison into the body politic by teaching people that they are presently at riskOf course those who are not on the left have known this for awhile Brandon Eich was fired by Mozilla because of a progressive campaign that was manufactured on the outrage that Eich had dared to participate in politics by donating to one side of a California Initiative that was passed Sadly we are at a point where private citizens are targeted for things they say on Facebook and the people who target on both sides justify their mean spirited actions by saying that their target was a bad person because the person voted this way or that or violated some piety or otherI was disappointed in some rules that Snyder didn t offer Here are a few1 Beware of those occasions when someone you like begins to cut away at the spirit of restraint that previously existed Hitler might not have been able to get his Enabling Act if Kurt von Schleicher had not led the way with his own efforts to circumvent the ReichstagLikewise although Democrats cheered and the media was silent when Harry Reid exercised the nuclear option it did set a precedent now that the Fascists control Congress Similarly there was loud cheering for the former president s use of executive decrees but what precedent did unilaterally changing immigration law set for the new presidentAt various times during the former president s administration I was put in mind of the dangerous precedents he was setting not unlike that of Schleicher See 2 Beware of the Coordinated Press The press has to be truly independent If it becomes a lapdog for one party it cannot fulfill its job of being a watchdog A population that has seen it be a lapdog for eight years will probably not pay it much attention when it continues to serve the interest of the party that is out of power3Beware of Charismatic Leaders who are called the Lightworker and make vapid claims about Hope and Change and being able to stop the rise of the oceans4 Beware of opponents of federalism and advocates of centralizations Hitler eliminated the federal states and centralized power such as coordinating political and economic power such as creating a centralized health insurance systemSnyder is histrionic The fomer president may not have seemed like an authoritiarian but to those who were put to the choice of religious convictions or penalties the former president was very authoritarian Nonetheless only those on the fever swamp did not believe that the former president was not going to surrender power to his successor The current president seems to have an authoritarian personality some might say New Yor personality but his policies tend away from authoritarianism Eliminating the ACA is a pro federalist position Reducing the size of government is anti authoritarianCertainly the media will be there to expose him And does any sane person really think that the president will not surrender power to his successor exactly the same way that the former president gave up powerSnyder is doing no one any good with this paranoid fantasyWe survived the former president as a democracy We will survive the current president as a democracy
