At what point does “they are saying I am by definition worse than Hitler and need to be in a camp” cross over from “a stupid narrative they believe” to a “clear and present danger to me and mine I must actively respond to.” I’m already passively preparing, but at some point I have to choose, and choose wisely, to move to active interference.
That is what worries me. Both the need to make that call and making it wrong.

herbn’s dilemma captures the essence of what John was telling me.—Joe]
