Here’s something that had occurred to me and is well stated by Stephan Molyneux at OpenMInd. In this entire episode they are giving credit to many in the alternative media for their work throughout the Trump campaign.
This, I think, is exactly true.
This ought to be a priority in the Trump administration. “Restoring full-fledged relations” between the nations. I certainly hope so. If anyone can sit down with Putin and do this, it is Trump. Negotiating deals is his forte, and I believe he already has the respect of Putin. If it will deflate the tensions that are now building between east and west.
Ever hear someone talking someone else off the ledge of a building when they are threatening to jump? This is what this sounds like to me. Everyone on the Dem side was frothing at the mouth over Trump and now they have to turn over the government to him. All the people they have pumped into a frenzy to win now must be deflated gently before they commit suicide or something like it.
I must say, Obama did a good job of suicide counselling here.
If you want to understand the Trump movement, regardless of his own personal idiosyncracies and political incorrectmess (perhaps even because of his political incorrectness!), just look at the motivation of independence that fuelled Brexit. There is a definite connection. Personally I hope it catches fire across the world.
