Summary

On the day we write this Epilogue, the President of the United States has been impeached for the second time. He is the first president of the country to be impeached twice. Many politicians of one party, including the president, have fomented violence. The country is riven into two. If the United States were the only country flirting with authoritarianism, one might view it as an anomaly, but at present, many countries in Eastern Europe have elected authoritarian governments, as have countries in Asia, North America, and South America. Such governments, once in power, do not go easily. The country is run for the benefit of the government and its members rather than of the people.
