The coup that was unsuccessfully activated on Jan 6. 2022 had actually happened successfully long before. That is, we have had a number of years with no government. The people participating inJan 6 were not being represented, not listened to, not even talked to. If we remember, Bush - Obama bailed out the banks but not the people in 2008. Hillary Clinton took a $500,000 fee for a trivial speech weeks before her unsuccessful run against Trump . She didn’t even see the need to hide it. In my mind, the problem begins as the Democratic Party became the party not of the workers but of Wall Street. The participants in Jan 6 are “deplorables'' in Hillary-speak but are actually orphans socially, deeply abandoned by access to a future, to college, to good jobs, to towns that are more than a collection of franchises, towns where there are no elites to hobnob with because everything is absentee ownership. But society made them so. “Deplorables”, but who made them so? Their world is ungoverned, a vacuum.
