Book review: On Tyranny; Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century, by Timothy Snyder
This is a quick read, only 128 pages, packed with signs, actions, and phrases to watch for and stand up against. It’s also a tiny book, only about 5 1/2 ”x 4”, so easy to slip into a pocket or purse.
The lessons are taken largely from the rise of the Nazis: how they did it, and how the population made it easy for them. Some of the chapters also bleed into our knowledge of the Trump era.
