Never let Deep State defenders such as Bill Barr or Lindsey Graham hypnotize you into believing that criticism of the American government threatens the durability of American institutions. It is government corruption that threatens those institutions, and only those institutions resilient enough to survive public scrutiny deserve continued life.
