For The Love Of Wisdom – Timothy Snyder – Truth

Timothy Snyder (August 18, 1969 -)

Americans are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism…Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience… You submit to tyranny when you renounce the difference between what you want to hear and what is actually the case… Accepting Post-truth is pre-fascism, and to abandon facts is to abandon freedom.
