    The people who want that kind of a world are all getting old, their kids don't listen to them anymore, and the rest of the world sure as shit won't support a totalitarian America -- we are very easy for the rest of the world to isolate and cut off.

    And, Atwood's dystopia, like many fictional dystopias, gave us the tools to recognize this kind of thing coming.  The efforts by Bush to sabotage and derail our democracy woke up a generation to the vileness and unfairness of what they were doing, and that backlash will continue pushing back to the left for a long time to come.  People who think they can just execute a coup d'état and lock themselves in power have holes in their heads, or will as soon as they try.
