I don't know if Trump is still pandering to his base of ignorant supporters, or he actually believes that he is some kind of messiah who can control the world through his sure will. I have written about Trump as an authoritarian bully and his avid followers before in this website and also a clinical diagnosis called, narcissistic personality disorder, but what scares the shit out of me is how his tactics are affecting Americans. His fuckin approval ratings keep going up.
Washington Post: How authoritarianism is shaping American politics (and it’s not just about Trump)
I don't know that I can continue to read articles by psychologists to understand Trump and his followers. However, I'm pretty sure that if I go some 80 years back in time I can find parallels in history. Hannah Arendt coined the phrase, “the banality of evil”. I dread that someone like her in the future will have to write about Trump's tenure in much the same light.
The essence of totalitarian government, and perhaps the nature of every bureaucracy, is to make functionaries and mere cogs in the administrative machinery out of men, and thus to dehumanize them. -- Hannah Arendt
Schmidt, when I joined the"club", Jared tried to convince me that the "system" has "checks and balances"
so this country never could become an dictatorship. But looking at the present situation, there seems to be no one who can just kick the "idiot" out, because of not having proper well defined "sound" laws nor a system with real oversight
, nor an very clear definition of what powers a president should have. So it is time that there is an "instruction manual"
is written to clearly detail how presidents should be properly vetted (before any election) as well have the proper instructions about its limitations defined. Everything Trump does "looks" new to us, as they say on the news
, and the rest of the government sits there only with an open mouth and does n't know how to deal with it. Such means that the antique laws here should be abolished and rewritten in an clear "black and white"
language which does not need interpretation. Furthermore all of this shows how poorly educated and backwards this country is, if they agree for an huge part with all the present nonsense of this government.
