I keep having a gut feeling that Trump will pull it off in the circus called ‘US democracy’. Yesterday, I had a somewhat interesting argument with an evangelist for the the ‘American dream’, for ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ – US imperialist style (this person is working in China). Our disagreements ranged over the DPRK (North Korea), China and the struggle between Trump and Clinton in the United States.
At one point, he said that he wishes three things for the disgruntled, exploited and shafted people of the central and southern parts of the USA:
- That they be educated and moved to the vicinity of the major hubs in the northeast and western parts.
- That they die off.
- That a country would attack the United States and obliterate them.
I couldn’t help thinking that this is precisely the attitude that will ensure such denigrated people will support Trump.
