Notably: It’s of course the second anniversary of the attack/insurrection/assault/ on the U.S. Capitol by Donald Trump’s election deniers/white supremacists/thugs/criminals/idiots/fuckers/dumbasses/and so on. This thought by Simone Weil, the French philosopher who died in 1943: “… we need first of all to have a clear conscience. Let us not think that because we are less brutal, less violent, less inhuman than our opponents we will carry the day. Brutality, violence, and inhumanity have an immense prestige that schoolbooks hide from children, that grown men do not admit, but that everyone bows before. For the opposite virtues to have as much prestige, they must be actively and constantly be put into practice. Anyone who is merely incapable of being as brutal, as violent,, and as inhuman as someone else, but who does not practice the opposite virtues, is inferior to that person in both inner strength and prestige, and he will not hold out in such a confrontation.”
Now this: Will Trump be president again?

Republican voters believed it, and this belief brought the year to its apocalyptic end two weeks before Inauguration Day, on January 6, when a mob that Trump had summoned to Washington and incited to march on Congress just as it was voting to ratify his opponent’s victory–20,000 neo- Confederate seditionists, QAnon conspiracists, white supremacists, and swag-wearing Trumpists, with their hats and flags and face paint, their sagging bellies and jeans–stormed the Capitol and searched for members of Congress to lynch, or else milled around taking selfies, while Trump watched with pleasure on TV, until our exhausted democracy mustered one last effort to save itself from destruction. A stab-in-the-back narrative was buried in the minds of millions of Americans, where it will continue to burn, as imperishable as a carbon isotope, consuming whatever is left of their trust in democratic institutions and values. Long after the last COVID patient is buried or sent home alive, Trump’s enduring legacy will be his 30,000 presidential lies. Super-spread by social media and cable news, they will linger for years, poisoning the mental atmosphere like radioactive dust. We are two countries–that was the real message of the 158 million votes. But we still have to live together. We’re stuck with one another.
–George Packer, Last Best Hope: America in Crisis and Renewal (2021).
