This is how societies collapse.
Very slowly. Then it happens very rapidly.
Twitter is gagging the president of the United States for vowing to restore law and order in the American capital, but not the violent anarchists who are seizing control of the streets to establish lawless zones!
Note: I see it as another symptom of elite fragmentation and political destabilization. Of course, this is five months after the president was impeached for the Ukraine hoax.
