i feel as though i imagine marty mcfly felt when he woke up in the wrong 1985, a 1985 minimally familiar, yet horrifyingly alien. hell valley.
i'm not sure you can adequately understand how much i entirely feel exactly that. unless you, like doc brown, are stranded here with me.

because really i feel like i felt the morning of the nine-eleven attacks watching evil unfold in real time on my television screen.

sartre wrote that hell is other people. really though, it's only certain other people and being geographically bound to a society that they inhabit.
i'm not really sure how it hasn't been made clear, year after year after year, that we're two nations, wholly divided. and that that should change.
peacefully, legislatively, with finality.

He's more narcissist than sociopath ("malignant narcissist" basically), so too much of a coward to be very efficient as a force of evil. Biggest danger, to my mind, is if someone on the Bannon/Ailes end figures out the mal. narc. rules and successfully plays him. For this reason I hope the press doesn't mock him out of putting Ivanka in at the White House as chief of staff or some similar role. She seems to understand how his controls work and lacks a particulary sinister agenda. I don't think Pence, Ryan et al. will have much leverage now, if they ever did, though he may turn to them if he feels the traditional Republican route is his best chance to stay popular with some crowd or other. Their goals are awful but slightly distinct from fascist so we'll be merely at Bush levels of sucklife if so. With that other crowd all bets are off.

Bush level sucklife was a catastrophe.

I think and hope you're right. I hate hoping that this is what being right looks like.
