Eutrepismus (eu-tre-pis’-mus): Numbering and ordering the parts under consideration. A figure of division, and of ordering.
Things are going wild in the USA. I can think of four measures that may bring us back from around the bend:
1. Declare martial law in Florida and Texas.
2. Declare war on home-grown militias.
3. Sanction the Republican Party
4. Nullify the two most recent Supreme Court appointments.
These are simple one-step measures. They will stop the madness. To be sure they are heavy-handed, but with good reasons and appropriate legal procedures, they will achieve their goals within the constraints of the law. Given what’s at stake, we must consider their effectiveness above all else. Will they get the job done? Yes.
