A Year of Donald Trump in the White House

By Adam Gopnik

Liberal democracy is good. Authoritarian nationalism is bad. That's the premise of the country. It's the principle that a lot of people died for. Americans never need to apologize for the continuing absolutism of their belief in it.

True. But, IMHO, the main issue here is the willful lack of critical thinking in American society. The big picture involving the ideal this country was founded on is, and always has been, a target for those that see through the soaring rhetoric of the Founding Fathers to the oligarchic seeds they consciously and deliberately planted.

We no longer should admire pretty words unless they have action to back them up.

Our biosphere in general, and our species in particular, are both in a LOT of life threatening trouble. THAT is the main issue we must concentrate on and address because, anyone as evil and stupid as Trump, who deliberately attacks the reality of that threat by doing everything to increase the danger, must be stopped AND imprisoned if we are to have a snowball's chance in hell of getting out of this mess.

The people in power, and those benefiting economically from the Stock Market Bubble, which is a DIRECT consequence of the corruption of the people in power, do not have a clue what critical thinking is. 🐒

Successfully dealing with the titanic problem we have requires clear eyed critical thinking.

The products of sound critical thinking such as empathy, humility, introspection, remorse, recognition of wrong and a willingness to make restitution for the past and continued wrongs, basically have been erased from the minds of most Americans.

Americans do not like guilt. I don't know anybody that does. But pretending we have nothing to apologize for is not helping.

We need to stop normalizing immoral behavior. We need to stop the right wingers from demonizing moral behavior by calling it "immoral behavior". Liberals need to claim the MORAL HIGH GROUND the right wingers deviously stole from us. Liberals need to stop pretending everybody can just do whatever the hell they want.

Immoral behavior will exist as long as humans exist. But, NORMALIZING immoral behavior by calling it "moral", as the fascists do, is destroying human society, PERIOD.

If we do not stop being stupid, money worshipping idiots and instead start imprisoning the stupid, money worshipping idiots, we will perish.
