I don’t know about anyone else, but what’s happening in the USA these days seems very ugly.
Firstly the election was stolen from Donald Trump, And now his impeachment has started. Whatever next?
Is it possible to impeach an ex-president? If so, doesn’t that mean Obama can also be impeached? If not, doesn’t that mean Trump is rightly still president?
If nothing else it seems horribly spiteful and vindictive. It looks like a show trial.
And also it seems politically dangerous. 74+ million Americans .voted for Trump back in November. Stamping on Trump also means stamping on Trump voters. It’s extremely divisive. And America is already deeply divided.
Something Paul Craig Roberts said, 17 minutes into this:
Everybody knows the election was stolen,
And that’s the horrific fact of the matter.
He also said that the United States, as a political project, had ceased to exist.
And that’s the terrible fact of the matter too.
And he said that Donald Trump was being punished.
And that’s obviously true too.
He asked how long it would be before everyone else was told to repeat the official narrative.
That’s a good question.
I wonder how long I’ll be able to continue to write this blog.
It’s all getting ugly.
We’re entering a totalitarian world.
Maybe it’s always been one.
