Letter to the editor: Editorial evoked false equivalency

While I appreciate Emerson Lynn’s editorial regarding a return to the center, there are a couple of points I would make. One is that he has characterized Donald Trump’s playing of the culture sphere as brilliant. To ascribe any brilliance to a Russian-assisted mob crook would seem to me to be overplaying one’s hand. And he seems to compare equally the tactics of the Left and the Right, which I would say is like comparing the KKK to Quaker peace activists — really.
Our country is truly falling apart, and as a liberal I will assume no blame in this process. I am not sure the United States will survive Donald Trump, because the center is incapable of grasping the deadliness of the attack on its very virtues, i.e. this will be played out in Congress and the courts, meanwhile the Justice Department is rounding up people and putting them in detention centers in former Walmarts.
I am truly frightened for the future of what I thought was a fairly vibrant democracy. 
John Dickason
