US Could Be Under ‘Right-Wing Dictatorship’ by 2030, Professor Warns

A Canadian professor wrote an op-ed warning that “American democracy could collapse” by 2025 and the country “could be governed by a right-wing dictatorship” by 2030.

“By 2025, American democracy could collapse, causing extreme domestic political instability, including widespread civil violence. By 2030, if not sooner, the country could be governed by a right-wing dictatorship,” wrote Thomas Homer-Dixon, executive director of the Cascade Institute at Royal Roads University in British Columbia.

Homer-Dixon, a self-proclaimed “scholar of violent conflict,” warned Canadians that their country must be prepared as the U.S. seems headed toward inevitable political collapse.

“We mustn’t dismiss these possibilities just because they seem ludicrous or too horrible to imagine. In 2014, the suggestion that Donald Trump would become president would also have struck nearly everyone as absurd. But today we live in a world where the absurd regularly becomes real and the horrible commonplace,” Homer-Dixon wrote.

“Today, as I watch the unfolding crisis in the United States, I see a political and social landscape flashing with warning signals.”

The political science professor went on the write that the U.S. is “becoming increasingly ungovernable, and some experts believe it could descend into civil war.”

“A terrible storm is coming from the south, and Canada is woefully unprepared. Over the past year we’ve turned our attention inward, distracted by the challenges of Covid-19, reconciliation and the accelerating effects of climate change,” he wrote.

Homer-Dixon sounds the alarm on the possibility of another Trump presidency in 2024, saying it could spell trouble for America’s neighbor to the north.

“But now we must focus on the urgent problem of what to do about the likely unraveling of democracy in the United States. We need to start by fully recognizing the magnitude of the danger. If Mr. Trump is re-elected, even under the more optimistic scenarios the economic and political risks to our country will be innumerable.”

The professor says Trump “and a host of acolytes and wannabes such as Fox [News]’s Tucker Carlson and Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene” transformed the Republican party “into a near-fascist personality cult that’s a perfect instrument for wrecking democracy.”

Though Homer-Dixon issued a dire warning for what may happen following a 2024 victory for the former president, he says “Trump may be just a warm-up act.”

“Returning to office, [Trump will] be the wrecking ball that demolishes democracy, but the process will produce a political and social shambles. Still, through targeted harassment and dismissal, he’ll be able to thin the ranks of his movement’s opponents within the state – the bureaucrats, officials and technocrats who oversee the non-partisan functioning of core institutions and abide by the rule of law. Then the stage will be set for a more managerially competent ruler, after Mr. Trump, to bring order to the chaos he’s created.”

      1. William Flynn says:

        I see you support EPIC FAILURE like your DICKTATER Creepy Joe. America will never be a communist shithole like you want it to be. Look at the Blue States that are ran by Democrats. Everyone of em are dumpster fires created by liberal policymakers. The good news is Brandon is turning Democrats into Republicans on a daily basis.

      2. Robert Smith says:

        And your proof is……….?

    5. Larry says:

      Let’s see. A professor. A canadian professor. What is wrong with this picture?? Oh, I know, more context. A bleeding liberal professor. A bleeding liberal canadian professor. All hail canada’s commie trudeau, the son of fidel castro. Thank you dominion voting machines for ruining the free countries of the world.

  2. Lowell says:

    ““Returning to office, [Trump will] be the wrecking ball that demolishes democracy, …………….”

    One can only hope. Our founders gave us a Constitutional Republic, and we want it back!!!!

    MAGAA/KAG Trump 2022!!!

    1. Glen says:

      Lowell,

      Clear, Concise, and Ever So Powerful
      Also, Correct.

  3. Don says:

    So a left wing dictatorship is preferable?

    “:Homer-Dixon, a self-proclaimed “scholar of violent conflict,”” – so that would be a Marxist troll.

    Canada is burnt toast. Really no reason to listen to any burble coming from that quarter.

    “Over the past year we’ve (Canada) turned our attention inward, distracted by the challenges of Covid-19, reconciliation and the accelerating effects of climate change,” In other words manufactured crises to distract the populace from what is actually happening in their country – a HARD LURCH TO TH LEFT.

  4. NavVet says:

    I agree with you on Canada but I wouldn’t want to be a democrat/socialist/communist in this country when it hits the fan

  5. Gerald Ladd says:

    I guess the asshole from Canada hasn’t noticed the drooling demonRAT in the WH is ruling with executive fiat! I’d say that makes him rather stupid!

  6. Jim says:

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is alive and well in socialist Canada.

  7. pia says:

    The political science professor went on the write that the U.S. is “becoming increasingly ungovernable, and some experts believe it could descend into civil war.” — Maybe that’s because the Left is destroying our nation and causing the chaos and ruination of our society. That [alleged] professor is probably owned by China, and/or lost his marbles in the sand box.

  8. Patricia says:

    Well, it could be worse! Actually, today, it IS worse. Anyone with half a brain can see that “dictatorship” seems to come from the Democrats! I see HOPE for the future under a Republican “dictatorship🙄”.

  9. Joseph M Lahr says:

    It would appear that lefties the world over are all drama queens addicted to hyperbole and irrational to boot!

  10. Diane says:

    First of all, this country WAS NOT founded as a democracy, no mention of the word or its democratic cousin in the Declaration or The Constitution. We are a Constitutional REPUBLIC.
    When I hear a candidate refer to this nation as a democracy, when republic would be the proper term, I place that person, whether Dem or Rep, on my no vote list.
    Calling this nation a democracy only serves one element of our society, the democrats. The dems love the subliminal suggestion for the connection favors them with the ignorant.

    1. Glen says:

      Diane,

      Excellent Comment

  11. VinnieA says:

    I think this “professor” has eaten too many of Tim Hortons Sugary Donuts! The worse Presidents in recent history have ALL been democrats, LBJ, Carter, Clinton, Obama and now the Mentally Defective Political Hack, Biden!

    Most if not all Tyrannical Government Leaders in the World have been Socialists, like Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Castro, Mao Te Sung and others!

    By the way, the Canadians GAVE UP THEIR GUNS………Stupid IS as a Stupid DOES! EH?

    1. Kevin says:

      I think he is smoked enough dope to put Willie Nelson into a coma…

  12. mike says:

    It seems fairly obvious that this so called self proclaimed scholar is a George Soros puppet, and will probably never know the real truth ! You just can’t fix stupid !

  13. Mike says:

    We should be so lucky.

  14. Tom says:

    He has some good points, particularly the political infighting these days and harsh rhetoric. Just read the comments on this article and you will see exactly what he is talking about. We are a very divided states of America, we are not united. Each side wants there own way or the highway. Greene talks of breaking the country up into sections of smaller independent countries ruled by factions of each party for their particular section. As an independent voter, I loath both party’s extremes, they are both very harmful. We need more moderates in government and more independent thinkers in the population which are not being produced by our currently failing public education system! It would not surprise me if what he says is true!

  15. ratwrangler says:

    By 2014, both the Democrat and the Republican Parties had a history of over 40 years of kowtowing to the corporations and the wealthy and ignoring the working-class Americans. If someone had told me then that a successful American businessman with no strong ties to either Party could win the Presidency, I would not have been surprised. This Canadian professor must not know anything about American politics if he thinks that the President alone could destroy democracy. Congress and the Supreme Court can both override anything the President does, including Executive Orders. It happened multiple times under Mr. Trump, and even more often under Mr. Biden. The news alone shows that the Court prohibited several of Mr. Biden’s attempts at changing the nation’s path. What we need more than ever today is for the American citizens to wake up and realize that neither of the two major Parties are doing any good for the nation and haven’t been since the 26th Amendment was ratified. The useless military conflicts in which we were embroiled did nothing for the American People, nor did sending jobs overseas. We need politicians in office who will actually work for the People, and neither Democrats nor Republicans fit that description.

  16. Jim Carden says:

    “Right wing dictatorship” …. Huh!
    The threat to and in American democracy is your Democratic/Progressive “fellow travelers” in Congress and the White House.
    People on both sides of the 49th who live in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones
    … or pontificate
    Just stay in Canada and be “nice” … better yet stay in your BC ivory tower with your “feel good” government, its media and propaganda, your COVID hysteria, “deep state” nanny governments and faltering economy. America will continue to live free by making the necessary corrections in November while ignoring you, the Liberals, NDP and other “useful idiots” in academia.
    PERIOD

  17. B.C. says:

    Mr Homer – Dixon is another crafty leftist purveyor of propaganda. So much for “middle American news”! Sadly, the real fascist are currently running the country, and they know that we know it. That’s why they’re trying to convince gullible people that conservatives are the bad guys, but we are actually freedom loving patriots! Don’t believe their garbage!

  18. Glen says:

    Only Communists (aka: Left Wing Dictators) fear a right wing dictatorship.
    1. In both, the dictator is all powerful and the people have no rights.
    2. In both, the dictator is kept in power by the secret police and the army.
    3. In both, the country is a threat to its neighbors and the world in general.
    4, Irritate Stalin, and if you survive the interrogation, it was off to the Gulags.
    5. Irritate Hitler, and if you survive the interrogation, it was off to the death camps.
    6. Explain to me why it was better to be arrested by the KGB than the Gestapo.

    Please tell me what is the difference?
    Here is the difference.
    Communists have a world focus and favor a one world government and conquer the world.
    Nazis were proud to be Germans and wanted to conquer only a few countries.
    Islam is about 60% Communist and 40% Fascist in mentality.

    I seriously doubt there would have been a WWII had Stalin and Hitler not signed their treaty.
    Stalin killed more people in one year than Hitler did in his entire career.
    That said, Communists belong in the Left half of Hell and Fascists/Nazis belong in the Right half of Hell, with Islam spread between both halves.
    My Dad, his brother, a few cousins, and 30 million others fought the Nazis.
    My brothers and I, along with a few million others fought Communists.
