The Weimar dynamic

I don’t agree with most of Andrew Sullivan’s diagnosis about this week’s elections, but this paragraph is eye-opening:

The Weimar dynamic is a simple one. The left and right polarize; the middle collapses; inflation takes off, unnerving everyone and discrediting government; and at some point, as liberal democracy breaks down, voters are asked to choose between the extreme left or the extreme right.

May you all have some moderate, measured, and non-inflammatory choices in the voting booth today.
