    Default Historians privately warn Biden that America’s democracy is teetering

    President Biden paused last week, during one of the busiest stretches of his presidency, for a nearly two-hour private history lesson from a group of academics who raised alarms about the dire condition of democracy at home and abroad.

    The conversation during a ferocious lightning storm on Aug. 4 unfolded as a sort of Socratic dialogue between the commander in chief and a select group of scholars, who painted the current moment as among the most perilous in modern history for democratic governance, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a private meeting.

    If our democratic form of government fails, it will be thanks to the rabid lunatics on the right who lack the ability to see the forest because of all the pesky trees getting in their way.

    We're definitely teetering. It's hard to believe this happened in such a short period of time.

    And yeah - this is on Trump. 100%.

    Change the system. It's a good opportunity.

    Yes- CHANGE. It's applicable to everything, including the US political system.

    It would be a victory for thinking Americans, mind- and the rest would just have to accept that.
