What are the warning signs of incipient tyranny?

 Why is the Biden regime putting out such obvious lies, such transparent falsehoods?  The reason is not to convince the people who use commons sense.  That remains the majority of the people of any country including the United States.

The reason lies in the history of tyranny and dictatorship.  Would-be dictators need to identify people who are potential enemies of their regime.  Tyrants throughout history, most recently people like Stalin, Hitler, Mao, followed the same pattern.  

Would-be tyrants can identify their allies by putting out obvious lies and seeing who repeats them, uncritically.  These people are the trusted guardians of the totalitarian regime.  

Those who publicly reject the lies identify themselves as enemies of the regime.  

For the rest, perhaps the majority, will stay silent and continue their lives as well as they are allowed to.  They are not a threat.  

We can take warning from that and learn before it’s too late.
