As we grow up, each of us develops a worldview — a story about who we are, what we believe, and what makes us feel safe. Most of us spend the rest of our lives sticking to our story. We see what we can tolerate seeing and disregard the rest. The vast majority of our everyday behaviors are automatic and habitual, rather than intentional and self-selected, and too often they’re reactive and defensive. Even as adults, our early experiences of vulnerability can be retriggered instantly whenever our safety and worthiness feel under threat.
That struck home in a powerful way. Thanks for your honesty.
Trump is the worst human being we’ve seen in a long while: no values, no beliefs, not a single charming redeeming quality. He’s pure sin and evil.
Unfortunately, he’s not a cause; he is a symptom of the GOP decade-long crusade (Reagan, Gingrich, Schlafly, McConnell) against intellectualism, education, welfare, equality, and social peace.
Removing him from office is a priority (for the US and the world). Treating the root cause is a necessity to avoid a global catastrophe.
