I found the seminar to be very interesting, however I also found it to be very one sided and against conservatives. In the description of the Authoritarian model of government I can see a large number of the examples pertaining more to the current administration than the previous one. President Biden wears aviator shades, Trump did not, President Biden has issued more executive orders in his first 90 days then Trump, the entire left side of politics are attempting to eliminate the 2 party system with their packing of the supreme court attempt, their hypocrisy in alleged voter suppression issues. Delaware and Colorado have more restrictive voter laws then what was just passed in Ga. Social media seem to be the propagandists for the democratic left. and sensor the right. So though I agree with some of what was said, I also disagree with several points. All in all it was very interesting and informative.
