You don’t have to know much about politics to see what is happening. The game of government has been an agreed upon illusion this whole time. Fake news has been a pandemic all within itself, and now, because of Trump, people are finally thirsty for the truth.
This has opened up brand new
outlets of alternative news, not only providing more jobs for the public, but also empowering the people to take control of their own countries’ narrative. What are “facts” when the winner has been writing the history book? They don’t want FOX or CNN to spoon feed them “what they should know” anymore.
The electoral college is outdated, and it’s only now that republicans are claiming things have been rigged? It’s ironic seeing angry white people yelling in black faces about how “they are being complacent in a crooked America.” If anyone knows it’s crooked…it’s them.
I guess it took Trump losing for them to see all this. I get it, though, it’s like cypher from the Matrix being upset at the truth, so he tries sinking the ship.
I do not believe in coincidences. In fact, I was suspicious of Trump's presidency from the beginning.
The conservative mentality just doesn’t cut it in a free, modern, America.
The system has been corrupt and it has kept Americans, as mental and physical slaves, with private prison systems, wars on drugs, and a false sense of morality using the Bible as a reference point to keep people from asking questions.
Logically, people get more done when they are in good spirits, so any type of progression as a society cannot happen when shackled in the mind or body. It is for the betterment of the world that this mentality needs to be squashed.
Trump took the job as the wolf in sheep’s clothing that was sent over to the conservative side as a leader, emboldening the worst of them: racists, homophobes, bigots. Little did they know he was baiting them the whole time. Sprinkling candy with his off-the-cuff-rhetoric and successfully drawing the worst of them out of the shadows and into the light for them to die.
I believe it will be seen soon enough, that Trump’s job was to jump start this change that is occurring. He is an actor after all. From looking at the societal results of things... it makes one wonder if he was “acting as Republican” all along.
He incited a riot on the capital then said he didn’t do it. If that’s not setting your own team up for failure then I don’t know what is.
Racism is a disease that stunts one's mental growth when you feel that you have already reached the pinnacle of life and have nothing else to learn from other people. But society as a whole wants to elevate. We are evolving past the simplistic nature of an organism whose sole purpose is reproduction.
We are working on the conscience part now.
This is where society truly starts to elevate, but the people in charge of the past, can’t seem to grasp that idea. They act like a coddled baby who never had to learn to do something for themselves, and now they are desperately scratching at the lid to their own coffin, made from their own intolerance.
A lot of conservatives are upset these days, saying they can’t say what they feel without criticism. The thing is...they can...but if what they are saying is racist, prejudice, or intolerant of other people...isn’t that sort of mindset a good thing to criticize?
If you are tolerant of intolerance than the intolerable behavior continues. We must put our foot down as a society if we want to evolve in a more unifying direction. This is not to say you can’t have negative thoughts about a person.
We live in a structurally racist world. This shit is engrained in the very engine of civilization. It’s in the nuances, the details of interactions, it’s even in the board games we play. Think of Chess… do you really think it is coincidental that white moves first and the other side is colored black?
Who created that game?
According to Chess.com “Chess was invented in India around the 8th century. Then it was known as chatrang, and changed over the centuries by the Arabs, Persians and then ultimately the medieval Europeans, who changed the pieces' names and appearances to resemble the English court.”
Ah, the English, a nation of white people who love to put their touch on things, (like the King James Bible), and then force feed it to the world. I’m trying to not sound too bias, but at this point I myself am growing intolerant of intolerance.
