Confused by Trump? That’s exactly what he wants.

Thank you for sharing!

I believe that irrational confusion can be quite rationally employed to weaken an entity you believe to have identified as a foe and a possible threat. If the democratic institutions threaten to neglect their — in your view — only viable role of protecting private assets and your sources of income on the financial markets by thinking about clever ways of introducing new transaction taxes, you might as well simply declare them your adversaries. Helping the Trump Campaign to succeed and helping undecided voters to vote in favor of Brexit might in this light become a very welcome opportunity to invest in keeping everything and everyone working in government or the press conveniently and compellingly busy for an indefinite amount of time.

I tried to share my thoughts on this here:
