THE LINCOLN PROJECT MARKS WEEK OF JAN 6, 2021 WITH VIDEO SERIES LOOKING AHEAD TO 2025
January 6, 2022 — As we mark one year since the insurrection of January 6, 2021, The Lincoln Project looks ahead to the America of January 2025 in a new video series: “Closer Than You Think.”
The videos illustrate what we can expect if the Republican Party achieves their anti-democratic, authoritarian goals. Set during dramatized periods in the near future, and delivered in the style of the authoritarian-friendly, right-wing media ecosystem, “Closer Than You Think” is a grim window into tomorrow.
Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson said of the series, “This is a sharp wake-up call about the fragility of American democracy and the stakes of national inaction and complacency. We’ve used the style and language of the new far-right media platforms to create a Man In The High Castle alternate future where the Trump movement succeeds in their goal to break American democracy.”
The first video in the “Closer Than You Think” series can be viewed here. Subsequent episodes of the series will be released throughout the week.
The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
