In this comprehensive account of what is becoming known as the capitol "riot", Mogelson argues that it wasn't a one-off fluke but something that many conservatives had been working towards for the past couple months. There were many smaller events within state legislatures, Michigan is the best example, where right-wing groups have been stoking animosity and resentment towards the democratic process. From the Proud Boys to QAnon supporters, Mogelson tries to paint a picture of what we are up against for the next couple years at least.
