Another movie about the dictatorship - thoughts?

THE dictatorship? A unique, singular article without specification? Have things become THAT melodramatic, or is the tunnel-vision, extreme short-term (both past and future), parochial, simplistic terminology in absolute applications, binary-thinking, etc., etc., etc., pop-culture zeitgeist become THAT bad?

Much of the country thinks we're living under a dictatorship. God help us.

How many of them have been put under house arrest, sent to labour camps, made to "disappear," executed, or forced into exile on police actions that utterly ignored the pressing of charges, consultation with a lawyer (or anyone, really), or other due process, just for peacefully disagreeing with the Trump Administration? How many Democratic, Third Party, or Independent candidates (or anti-Trump Republican candidates) are being beaten, arbitrarily arrested, or yanked off the ballot on flimsy premises while campaigning for the upcoming 2018 Midterm Elections? How many journalists are being arrested, having their media outlets shutdown, made to "disappear," or forced into exile, again, without charges or due process, rather than just being dismissed as "fake news?" I think a lot of Americans don't even know what a dictatorship is, despite the fact that REAL dictatorships are ALWAYS on the news and in political discussion.

I suddenly consider you a non-democratic liberal.
