Trump and the Consequences: Democracy at a Crossroads by Albrecht von Luecke, December 2016

What appears here is another form of democracy, without the constitutional state and without opposition. Trump could operate with enemy declarations. Politics in the state of emergency could become the normal case in the West.

Today Donald Trump is a radicalized Nixon. Democracy is always endangered and never given as a present. It is not too late to understand this.
