    that today's current incarnation of right-wing hysteria could turn the U.S. into an autocratic society. Markos is right that the only thing keeping these people in check is our legal system and culture. But a catastrophe - say, a financial collapse - could unleash the full-blown despotism right-wingers want to impose.

    I fear that the apathetic among us are going to stand by and let it happen. The question is: what steps do we take now to prevent a dictatorship from happening when so many are effectively disenfranchised by our corrupt electoral system?
