The end of democracy as we’ve known it

The point that stood out in your reflect John was this:

So the US electorate may have felt safe in taking a punt on Trump, on the grounds that if it turned out badly, well, then, the system would take care of them. In a way, that was also the thinking of my many liberal American friends who told me that, while Trump would be terrible, β€œwe are a Republic of Laws” and the Constitution, the separation of powers and the court system would keep him under control and limit the damage, pending restoration of normalcy.

I was not really sure what it would be like, but I did not think that it would be like this.
