I like this take.

It’ll accelerate no matter who wins. I’m not in a position to speculate which is worse but I think if trump loses the fash are going to start shit and I don’t think Biden is going to do anything about it.

Something I haven’t seen talked about is how if Trump does win he doesn’t have to worry about reelection in 4 years so he will feel more confident to fuck shit.

it seems like USA is already heading toward a head-on collision with itself, and there's nothing that can really prevent that entirely now so i guess the best you all could hope for is damage control.

damage control

It feels like every side wants this and that’s why it’s gotten like this. I’m glad I live in a decent part of the country I guess, but the more I think about it the less it feels like decent exists.
