Great article, reminding us that none of this is new. I suppose it feels new to every generation that isn’t aware of shady dealings of the past, and it feels new because we in the (formerly) democratic (seeming) world have never experienced lies and gaslighting at the current level.

I am not so sure about twitter, it never was my go-to for truth, don’t have much confidence it will ever be, but I am beyond thankful for Substack and writers such as yourself.
