Internal Threats to US Democracy

The brief analyzes the potential internal threats to democracy in the United States by examining Project 2025, the Seven Mountain Mandate, and far-right extremist groups, including MAGA, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, and 3 Percenters. The analysis delves into the historical roots, key figures, policy proposals, and societal impacts of these movements, comparing them to the principles enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence. Project 2025, led by the Heritage Foundation, seeks to reshape the federal government with conservative goals, risking the erosion of judicial independence, checks and balances, and civil liberties. The Seven Mountain Mandate promotes Christian dominion over key societal spheres, threatening religious freedom, pluralism, and the separation of church and state. Far-right extremist groups advocate for authoritarian structures, marginalizing minority communities and undermining democratic participation. The intersection of Project 2025 and the Seven Mountain Mandate reveals significant potential impacts on American democratic principles, particularly centralized power, reduced civil liberties, and increased religious influence in public life. The combined effects of these movements challenge the foundational ideals of American democracy, emphasizing the need for vigilant monitoring to safeguard democratic institutions and principles.
