Trump is not the danger. That lies in who follows him.

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 video:

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.
