How far can democracy unravel? Republican Lincoln was determined to hold America together, Republican Trump is determined to us apart. Just ahead of his new book on Lincoln, Summoned To Glory, history professor Richard Striner sheds light on a Lincoln not well known: a fiery speaker who spoke with amazing prescience about a future where we find ourselves today. He foresaw a tyrannical madman. Lincoln’s then-new party is transformed into worshiping only power, period. Relying on the use of fear and hatred of others. The interests Lincoln fought, wealthy white supremacists with no interest indecency, are now in power. Under Lincoln, ethics had to remain in law; today they are irrelevant. History from which we can learn much, for our future.
