Review of 'Flag and the Cross' on 'Goodreads'

3.5 stars. This is a good overview of how we got to where we are today and outlines what's at stake for the US. The authors assert that people born outside of the US are most at risk should MAGA continue to gain power. Later chapters project some possible futures, and the outlook is not especially good. I was a bit disappointed that the vociferous othering of LGBTQ+ people, and trans people in particular, was left out, given how rampant this behavior has been for some time. The increasingly tenuous status of women and Jews in this country was also largely overlooked.
