The Spirit of the Laws, Illustrated [Baron de Montesquieu]

Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu (1689­1755), was a nobleman, a judge in a French court, and one of the most influential political thinkers. Based on his research he developed a number of political theories presented in The Spirit of the Laws (1748). The father of the United States Constitution, James Madison, once said, "the oracle who is always consulted and cited on this subject [separation of powers] is the celebrated Montesquieu.".

Yes. This is a frightening replay of the Weimar Republic at warp speed. Beware of anyone who says he/she can save us from this. There is already one in place with another waiting in the wings.
