I don't think they are so "directionless". We are in the midst of an “impeachment in a Capitol ringed by troops” and a constitutional crisis that could spiral into a state of emergency with “limited” martial law. I urge you to get behind the ideas expressed below regarding how we should react to keep Donald Trump paralyzed until he is out office and to prevent a reincarnation of him in the future.
Everything that happened leading up to January 6 in an October article entitled The War After the Election [https://medium.com/illumination-curated/the-war-after-the-election-545de96aa4ca?sk=627c55d616d9296af3e398f1686493a4] in which I summarized the findings of the Transition Integrity Project, a group that included former Congressmen, United States Senators, previous cabinet members, White House Chiefs of Staffs, Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security and state governors whose “war games” predicted almost exactly what is happening. I have been updating the article to take into account events since January 6 with ideas regarding what we should do to immobilize Trump until Biden assumes power and clarified the strategy in an article entitled “How Would Martin Luther King Confront the Capitol Riots?” [https://medium.com/illumination-curated/how-would-martin-luther-king-handle-the-inaugural-capitol-riot-trump-and-the-threat-of-martial-law-2bbb8236fc4?source=friends_link&sk=2b1ae1ec9a766553e79b6422c5222c95].
Part of this strategy involves politically incapacitating Trump by holding the swords of both an impeachment conviction and the 25th Amendment to his throat.
We as a citizenry should refrain from giving Donald Trump any excuse for attempting to declare any states of emergency. It wouldn’t necessarily succeed, but the President could justify the legality of the initiation of his emergency powers more than he can justify the legality of so many other things he has done.
