Vulnerability. I started reading Timothy Snyder’s book titled, The Road to Unfreedom, on Independence Day. As I read about Russia and the rise of authoritarianism, I thought of Ben Franklin and his description of the United States: “a republic, if you can keep it.” Snyder surveys many ways in which western institutions are vulnerable, and how growing inequality highlights that vulnerability. Any citizens interested in reading something that will stimulate thinking about trends and our current situation will find a lot to think about after reading this book.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
