One response to “Desensitized America: How Trump out-smarted voters”

  1. Barry Schiller

    I wonder if the country can ever recover from Trump and the GOP nationally which are determined to rule no matter what it takes – extreme gerrymandering, voter suppression, appeals to racism, nationalism, and religious zealotry, blatant disregard of facts, demonizing the media, extreme personal vilification of opponents, undermining science, glorification of weapons and the military, and contempt for compromise and diplomacy. That this strategy has by and large worked for them (as they now control all 3 branches of government and many states) encourages more of the same. Democrats seem unable to articulate a coherent message as an alternative and those progressives who work outside of Democratic politics only divide and weaken the opposition. I hope a future essay in this series can find some reasons for optimism.
