Protect the Republic

David Remnick:

[T]he Constitution is not by itself an insuperable barrier against the authoritarian temptation… A President can at least try to constrain freedoms, issue racist decrees, intimidate, coerce. And, if that becomes the case, it will be on us, resolute citizens, to protect the republic—to demand, as [Benjamin] Franklin said, that we keep it.
