Victor Davis Hanson has published an article titled Weimar America, which begins with the line:
Something eerie, something creepy, is happening in the world—and now in America as well.
Hanson sees some very disturbing similarities between Weimar then and the USA now. Definitely read the whole thing.
Recent events in the US, such as the level of sympathy for Hamas and the outbreaks of virulent anti-Semitism, seem to have taken many people (not including Hanson) by surprise. But this has been building for a long time. Hanson’s article reminds me that in 2016, I wrote a post titled The United States of Weimar? and updated it a month later. I’m republishing these posts here, following the page break. Some of the links may not work anymore.
