Crazy Power | the new republic

Naturally, one of the ideas being floated by those agents of chaos right now, as investigations into the former president’s dealings advance on multiple fronts, is that the very act of bringing Trump to justice could plunge the country into turmoil. It’s an argument that Trump, in particular, hopes will be convincing, if only to save his own skin. Towards the washington postby Paul Waldman and Greg Sargent reportit’s also an argument that’s finding some traction in speech, as media elites wonder if Garland shouldn’t try to defuse the tense situation.

But as Sargent points out, those tensions exist only because of “GOP demagoguery,” and it’s not Garland’s “job to shape the legal response around GOP noise.” Furthermore, the long-term chaos caused by creating a culture in which no one is accountable outweighs the short-term chaos of a news cycle in which the The dumbest experts on earth demonstrate how susceptible they are to right-wing propaganda.

Democrats have an opportunity to draw an important contrast to the Republican vision of America, and the quiet sobriety that Garland has recently projected is a model for Democrats to follow. Not long ago, I proposed that Democrats promise voters that they would fight for The good life—a promise to deliver more shared prosperity, more widely distributed political power, more political stability, all to allow all Americans more time to spend with the people they love. Chaos is the enemy of this agenda. This is a good time for Democrats to make a big bet that more people want a peaceful and prosperous country than an ungovernable one.
