Me: Liberals and conservatives look at Trump through their respective biases. The unvarnished objective truth is that Trump is an historic demagogue, a 3rd rate populist intellect and terminally orthodox economic “thinker”. In other words disintegration is the default mode of unconsciousness.
Everyone wants change. The question is do we want integrative change or disintegrative non-change.
JS: Well, if Trump showed us anything, we can control politicians through exercise of our vote. You seem to think “populism” is a bad thing. What’s better, being controlled by elites that do not have our best interest at heart.
Vote for change. Vote for the politician that both parties hate. Drain the swamp. Get rid of the aristocracy that rules us now.
Me: As for Populism it’s just another insufficiently integrated with grace political ism, and Trump is all about power and manipulation of his fellow power seekers ONLY. There’s no real insight there politically or economically….let alone individually. There are hints (not established yet) that Devin Nunez, Paul Ryan the speaker of the House and Mitch McConnell the majority leader of the senate are recorded on signal intelligence as agreeing to launder Russian money into the Republican party which would make their failure to call Trump on his caustic demagoguery and his obvious attempts to muddy the waters regarding the Mueller Investigation a lot more clear. In other words they’re all implicated and not only is Trump going down the Republican party itself as an organization is going to go down as well. I really hope this is not the case, but it fits within the craven domination of politics by power.
