While there is an amazing feeling of hope springing up in America after decades of failure, the forces of evil are still in control. Can Trump and the criminal party be removed in time? Time is our enemy now.
I have a fear that we are no longer up against anything like rational people. Societies can be taken over by a drive for self destruction. Even a minority can decide that suicide is better than any change.
Trump’s psychopathology may be a benefit here. He has no interest in anything but himself and his sacred self cannot be harmed. At heart he is a massive coward who fears death more than anything. A big enough threat will move him to resign. It’s the religionist fruit cakes who will try to kill everyone if their deformed fantasies are truly threatened.
But I will agree that New Zealand is perhaps the best model for where we must go very, very quickly now.
