In 2016 the authoritarians did well...Trump, Duerte, Erdogan, Putin all had a good year

Authoritarianism deepened in India and China... and showed its face more in Poland and Hungary

France will fall to either Fillon or Le Pen - both odious creatures

Merkel is teetering, Italy and the UK are dysfunctional ...

Intolerant PC values have infested college campuses and many workplaces - economic populism (ie illiberalism) is now beloved of the Left and Right ... attrocities rage unanswered in Syria

How can those who believe in Freedom be most effective ?

On what basis do you assert that Trump is authoritarian?

Many US publications and commentators, including GOP label him such...there were some electoral contests in the US this year, they kinda got wide coverage...and Donald...ticked off most of the authoritarian boxes

He doesn't put forward any credible argument for Trump's alleged authoritarianism. It's just more whinging about the result.

Despite these characters a casus belli is more likely to appear out of nowhere.
