Columnist Robert Knight worries in “When you give liberals the Oval Office” (Commentary, Feb. 17) that we may be inching toward the socialism, which was feared 30 years ago in the “1984” of George Orwell.

Actually, it may be worse than that. When author Sinclair Lewis wrote “It Can’t Happen Here” nearly 80 years ago, he was concerned that our country might one day be moved from democracy to tyranny — much like Germany in the 1930s — right before our very eyes.
