Historian Timothy Snyder has succinctly yet vigorously broken down in twenty short lessons the detailed steps we must take to resist the abuse of power by those claiming to be the majority voice. This is not merely in regard to the current political tone, but historically includes the misuse of authority to keep and marginalize any specific group of people. We must learn from the past to actively move forward. We, the people, must use the past to be armed with the truth and to not let manipulation of historical facts be endorsed by our own complacency. We are now–more than ever–inundated with information in shades of grey. Keep this in your back pocket.
