I mean you highlighted the Putin problem. As Putin rose people were hesitant to use the f world. Fascism means Hitler. Putin clearly isn't doing X, Y, and Z as Hitler clearly did. We can't use the f word.
Trump literally follows the fascist playbook. People dismiss his acts and focus on his idiocy. Oh it is just a coincidence he has devoted every day to undermining or destroying so many of America's institutions. Did you see him see where he couldn't pronounce Yosemite and spent the morning trashing Morning Joe.
Trump is much more than a troll. It is why he is currently POTUS. If he wasn't much more than a troll he....probably would have been arrested 57 times and dead broke at this stage. Never even getting the chance to pretend to run for POTUS.
Trump is extremely smart. He just isn't smart at the things we traditionally value nor does he care to be.
Agreed man. Social media in particular is the absolute worst. At the same time I see technology, as most other things, as a double edged sword. It can produce great results or awful results depending on how you use it and who is using it. Overall I feel we have a human problem at the end of the day. If we continue to let various political narratives navigate how we interact with the world and cease from doing any kind of serious soul searching, we’re all doomed.
