I may have spotted a case of where the Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement would be appropriate. The problem with listing The '70s as America`s "darkest hour", is the implication that everything went soooo much better with Reagan and the presidents beyond. From a Certain Point of View. However - this is up for a heavy debate, as different fractions may discuss whether the splendid inheritance of Reagan has made several instances of Darkest Hour in many other corners of the world. This historical entry is so fresh it borders on the "politics ban".

In light of the addition of the 2016 election, which I would delete per this TRS if not for the question of what to do with other political examples. In fact, any Real Life entry could be contested by the opposite side of who the Darkest Hour applies to.

Long term, I think this trope should be made a No Real Life Examples, Please! trope.

For now, any objections to cutting any political content?

Nope. No objections whatsoever.

Katie MacAlister's Aisling Gray series ends book three, "Light My Fire", at an incredibly low point.

This example has no real context about the substance of the lowest point. Could someone familiar with the series help out, please?

Should the page quote really have the link it does? The characters were already discussing that, if they succeeded, they would probably be in-universe storybook heroes, after all.

Is there anything that should be done with this page to deal with the fact that it's between 1/3 and 1/2 (estimated) spoilered? Should there just be a preemptive spoiler warning? Neither Belly of the Whale or Near Villain Victory is quite so heavily spoiler tagged. Alternatively, should I just go to the Trope Repair Shop with this?

No, Spoiler Policy is pretty clear that if they're abused to the point of unreadability, they've got to go. I've removed all the spoilers and put a warning tag on the page.
