Because we haven't progressed

Not only have we not progressed, the election of Trump is a huuuuge step backwards....

When you blow up the truth of the past, poison history and historical context with lies energized by passions of fear, hatred and abandonment there is no step backwards, it's only forward we go,,, stumbling into holocaustic warfare is inevitable given that we have been so successfully misled by counterfeit patriotism, counterfeiters' propaganda and the justUS, not Justice that has impelled Humanity to get to this existential tipping point we are at for one long generation now.

republicans are looking down- they  see the poorest and the weakest and the most vulnerable and they hate them for that. trump voters are correctional officers, peace officers, paramedics, construction workers, contractors, union guys all making 80k plus...they think they work hard to stay out in the country or the suburbs in their mcmansions away from the unwashed masses and they want to stay there watchin tv, goin on facebook, drinking beer, paying high taxes and thinking that those unfortunates in the city are clueless...they want to be like trump- say what they want, do what they want and get away with it, they want to have a wife like he has, they want to sexually assault who they want to and get away with it...their racists, homophobes (unless they have someone close to then who is not hetero) misogynists (women too), spiritually bankrupt and ignorant beyond compare...the empire is crumbling. china doesn't care what happens to us...we are lost in materialism, self-seeking and vapid pursuit of thrills. i don't like us- if it weren't for my 12 yr old son i would have left long ago. i don't see myself here in 10 years. poc are warmer, spiritual and community- based. white culture is diseased- the brits are despicable, the ugly american is everywhere...
