There’s a great LifeLock ad where four masked bank robbers burst through the door and yell for everyone to get down. A woman on the floor looks up at a bank guard. “Do something,” she whispers.
“Oh, I’m not a security guard,” the man says. “I’m a security monitor. I only notify people if there’s a robbery.” He looks over at the armed robbers in stocking masks, holding a hostage.
“There’s a robbery.”
Like the security monitor, Americans are passively observing a robbery, the theft of democracy. We’re witnessing, in real time, an insurrection, a coup d’état.
