Is America Still Safe for Democracy?
Why the United States Is in Danger of Backsliding
 May/June 2017 Issue < https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/united-states/2017-04-17/america...
The election of Donald Trump as president  of the United States—a man who has praised dictators, encouraged violence among supporters, threatened to jail his rival, and labeled the mainstream media as “the enemy”—has raised fears the United States  may be heading toward authoritarianism. While predictions of a descent into fascism  are overblown, the Trump presidency could push the United States into a mild form of what we call “competitive authoritarianism”—a system in which meaningful democratic institutions exist yet the government abuses state power to disadvantage its opponents...
There is little reason to expect Americans’ commitment to democracy to serve as a safeguard against democratic erosion. 
Paradoxically, the polarizing dynamics that now threaten democracy are rooted in the United States belated democratization. It was only in the early 1970s—once the civil rights movement and the federal government managed to stamp out authoritarianism in southern states—that the country truly became democratic. Yet this process also helped divide Congress, realigning voters along racial lines and pushing the Republican Party further to the right. The resulting polarization both facilitated Trump’s rise and left democratic institutions more vulnerable to his autocratic behavior. 
The safeguards of democracy may not come from the quarters one might expect. American society’s purported commitment to democracy is no guarantee against backsliding; nor are constitutional checks and balances, the bureaucracy, or the free press. Ultimately, it may be Trump’s ability to mobilize public support—limited if his administration performs poorly, but far greater in the event of a war or a major terrorist attack—that will determine American democracy’s fate....

"Among all his alternatives, the least desirable for Trump is to act on his threats to slap punitive tariffs on his country's largest trading partner and label China a 'currency manipulator' as protectionism only stirs up retaliation.

With the killing Thursday of a Paris police officer claimed by the Islamic State, proposals to close borders and aggressively crack down on domestic security threats are at the center of debate. But the election impact on NATO and other Western defense elements could be equally profound...for one of two nuclear-armed powers in Europe, with the world’s sixth most powerful military and a seat on the U.N.

France’s next revolution

.....But the malaise goes well beyond stagnant living standards. Repeated terrorist attacks have forced citizens to live under a state of emergency and exposed deep cultural rifts in the country with Europe’s largest Muslim community...Mr. Macron thinks the way to get more French people working is to reduce cumbersome labour protections.. pitching himself as q pro-globalisation revolutionary...as President Hollande’s economy minister. His liberalising programme will probably be less bold than that of the beleaguered Mr Fillon who promised to trim the state payroll by 500,000 workers and slash the labour code. Both revolutionaries would have difficulty enacting their agendas...Nonetheless they represent a repudiation of the status quo. A victory for Mr Macron would be evidence that liberalism still appeals to Europeans... in this extraordinary election, anything could happen. France has shaken the world before. It could do so again.
