I really love your response, Anthony. I am an American and not a Trump supporter, but I understand that people who voted for him were voting against the establishment. And what you said is true, their ideologies are killing us. Quite literally.
: I want to be very careful about what I say, but a new narrative is emerging out of the traditional argument between conservatives and socialists: that of a popular reaction against the “professional” political class that no longer represents democracy, freedom for all and the common good. I am not a Trump fan (nor am I American), but he does (or appears to) represent a revolution against a self-serving establishment.
: I do begin to see that the goalposts are moving, and everything is changing. This is what can make everything so dangerous. I agree that the various figures in Europe seeking election are not Nazis or Fascists, and seek to break the present system that is stifling us.
: I support something that will bring change, break the inevitable nature of some kind of “1984” type surveillance society and enable ordinary people like you and I to live dignified lives. It is frightening, because we can’t see what is coming. Everything is new and unprecedented. It is tempting to hide behind Establishment ideologies, but they are killing us.
: I too will avoid the subject of politics here, because there is no one truth, and there is already enough conflict in this world.
