Sometimes I feel there are just too many people. And that numbers can amount to a sort of ignorance that the idea of intelligence just cannot account for or educate. Politics then falls outside of mere rationality.
These Trump supporters may be victims of merely being in an environment where they don’t see difference or encounter anyone who thinks differently than themselves. And have little ability to reflect on experience outside their own. Basically, blind and desperately seeking.
Can’t we just lose gracefully? When Trump won, did the other side claim voter fraud and March to Washington saying “it doesn’t add up”? We want honesty ? No. They said “well give him a chance Becuase that’s what America process decided.
I wonder if these people just feel excluded. Have little recourse to a true global identity and feel left out. ? They thus recourse to the only thing they know: Conspiracy and religious belief.
Hmm. It’s really is kind of sad. Somehow, We need to support these people in ther person, to feel empowered and not dumb or stupid.
Truth? Honesty? It appears the “post truth” President has a following of people who want honesty, but they are unable to have a criteria which meets those standards unless they win.
That seems dangerous..
We need to take care of our own, and these people are Americans.
Less a political crisis, and more a mental health crisis/ spiritual crisis:
They are scared.
Ignorance breeds hate.
….. OR… these people are just sore losers and whiners. ￼ 😜
