Here's the portion quoted in the video from Snyder's essay, which is well worth reading...

9/11 and 1/6
How an American nightmare becomes real


QUOTE
...I have the Cassandra feeling this spring because it is so obvious where all of this is heading.  President Trump tells a big lie that elections are rigged.  This authorizes him and others to seek power in extra-democratic ways.  The lie is institutionalized by state legislation that suppresses voting, and that gives state legislatures themselves the right to decide how to allocate the electoral vote in presidential elections.

The scenario then goes like this.  The Republicans win back the House and Senate in 2022, in part thanks to voter suppression.  The Republican candidate in 2024 loses the popular vote by several million and the electoral vote by the margin of a few states.  State legislatures, claiming fraud, alter the electoral count vote.  The House and Senate accept that altered count.  The losing candidate becomes the president.  We no longer have "democratically elected government."  And people are angry.

No one is seeking to hide that this is the plan.  It is right there out in the open.  The prospective Republican candidates for 2024, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Josh Hawley, are all running on a big lie platform.  If your platform is that elections do not work, you are saying that you intend to come to power some other way.  The big lie is designed not to win an election, but to discredit one.  Any candidate who tells it is alienating most Americans, and preparing a minority for a scenario where fraud is claimed.  This is just what Trump tried in 2020, and it led to a coup attempt in January 2021.  It will be worse in January 2025...

And THIS RIGHT HERE is the conclusion...

When Trump told his big lie, the airplane hit the building.  What unfolds from there has a certain logic.  It can be stopped, but only if it is understood.  Everything happens fast.  It is so easy to look away, to imagine it was all an accident, to think that institutions will save us.  They will only save us if we save them first.

The anti-voter laws proposed and passed by Republican state legislatures around the country move the scenario to its next step.  Halting them might well be the only way to halt the scenario as a whole.  Businesses that want to avoid chaos between now and 2022 and prevent system breakdown in 2024 would be well advised not to donate to politicians who repeat the big lie and suppress the vote.

We have to act now.  This is what no one wants to hear.  We want to believe in American democracy.  We want to take pride in new laws, a growing economy, the end of covid.  I get all of that.  I want to feel that way too.  I have not yet figured out how to tell this story.  In waking life I feel as I did in the dream, facing those senior citizens.  I couldn't convince a single one of of them.  And so I just stood in the doorway and kept talking.  And woke up in the middle of the night and wrote this.
