In his book, Snyder talked about the foresight of the founding fathers of this nation. He says that they tried to protect us from the threat that they knew about. That is the tyranny that can overcome ancient democracy. Today, the political order is facing new threats. This is unlike the totalitarianism of the twentieth century.
