We must understand the threat from within

Like many Americans, I am outraged by the violent attack on our Capitol, in the name of patriotism, but recognize it for what it is.  While it was fomented by conspiratorial elements in our government, social media, and dangerous fringe groups, there is no conspiracy in believing that it was a heinous assault on our democratic process and the rule of law.  We must see it for what it is.
