Letter to the editor: Nation's current path foreshadowed

A cautionary tale: When loss of sleep is the response to a neurotic, amoral, ignorant “leader” of an entire country, that’s a personal problem. When a young mother is assaulted by a neo-Nazi because she’s bi-lingual, the country has a problem. When a neighbor, who escaped Germany in 1938, says the similarities are striking, the planet has a problem. The seeds of Facist-narcissism have taken root. That little dictator possessed a greater capacity for general knowledge, and a similar level of self-adulation. Historically speaking, other countries have been led by child-emperors. D. J. Trump is America’s first.
