it would seem that the man is behaving true to form — — as set out by his many predecessors in history.
The most recent one of note, (there have been many) also used voter intimidation tactics, when he got into power of course there were no more elections and opponents were duly dealt with.
But Trump will not get elected this time. Or even if he did, the danger lies in who follows him, because the economy will tank over the next 4 years whoever is in office. After that a real dictator is likely to take over “to restore public order and confidence”
Those who believe his rantings see a beckoning utopia — They are convinced that prosperity can be voted into office.
It can’t, the reasons for our problems lie in the fact that we have spent the last 200 years consuming the planet’s resources to create a delusion of infinite wealth.
Now that party is over, but few can accept that. Most see our problems as political, and even if Trump got into office, somehow he would be controllable,
They said that of Hitler in 1932. He too was thought a bombastic fool, he too was cheered into office.
And he too was given control of the mightiest military force on earth.
If you doubt that, watch this
It is your future. It shows how
the gullible can be led into a right wing death trap.
That video does not make easy viewing; we thought such evil was long dead. If you are able to think with any depth, it will move you deeply. But watch it, It will scare you — it is meant to do just that.
Digest what it means. Circulate it to others. It is the ultimate outcome of fascist thinking
There has been a century of growing affluence, at least in the developed industrial part of the world, and everyone is demanding that it should continue, and sees no reason why not. We are all in fact willing contributors to a global Ponzi scheme, but few are aware of that.
Trump is merely giving voice to those demands, and his followers are just screaming in unison — because they have nothing else to scream about. We’ve been to the oil-party, and now that party’s over, but Trump is promising infinite wealth in his Ponzi scheme..
The global economy cannot provide any more, we’ve milked the Earth dry.
this book :The End of More:
tries to explain why there is no more.
Ultimately Trump will lead the nation into a theofascist dictatorship , by default and ineptitude . The seeds of it are already sown, with a gun happy population locked into a belief system that relies on the return of a messiah to restore American greatness — -a situation that never existed for most American people in any era.
When there is no return to prosperity, and the economy goes into a tailspin, all hell is going to break loose with everyone seeking to blame everyone except themselves, and backing up their opinions at gunpoint.
welcome to the (dis) United states of America, especially as it devolves into 5 or 6 disparate regions.
