Why Trump voters are not “complete idiots”
Chris Arnade

nice work Chris Arnade on describing the dichotomy of the “elite” vs. “everyone else”. (anti-elite?)

I suggest everyone read Erich Fromm’s “Escape from Freedom” for a deeper understanding of the craving for an authoritarian leader, a strong man, that has been going on for hundreds of years. It is a social psychology driving this desire around the world. Hint: the need for belonging you identified plays a major role.

With April 6, 2017 being the anniversary of the U.S. entering WWI, we ought to pay attention.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
