The strategy and tactics seem familiar

Democrats now have troops guarding Washington DC, have erected a fence around the Capitol, and require House members to pass through metal detectors before being allowed on the floor of the House. Democrats are embarking on screening the military in search of those with political views that don't sync with the "progressive" agenda. Our southern border is being opened up, hurdles that have kept down illegal immigration for the past four years are being removed. Don't worry they say, it's all for a better America.

Meanwhile, social media mega corps continue to isolate or ban from their platforms those who dissent.
How do you react to things like this, because each day seems to bring a new surprise, a new "emergency"?
"Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. You don’t want to act, or even talk, alone; you don’t want to ‘go out of your way to make trouble.’ Why not?—Well, you are not in the habit of doing it. And it is not just fear, fear of standing alone, that restrains you; it is also genuine uncertainty." - They Thought They Were Free
