Once upon a time in the 2010's, Ciro Santilli went to an artsy theatre venue in the suburbia of Paris, dragged by his wife then girlfriend of course.
In the venue, there was a politician, who was doing his best to show how much they supported the arts, and there were of course the artists, involved in the play.
The politician would see a political power score on top of every person's head, and would spend an amount of time talking to each person exactly proportional to that score. This meant basically one sentence to us. The words themselves didn't really matter of course, only the time spent, they just have to produce nice sounds.
One of the artists however, and he seemed quite important in the production, for some reason spent a huge amount of time speaking to us. The score the artist saw on our heads was of love, or how interested we were in the art.
Trump's election was an act of protest by the people, because they felt, and rightly so, that the promises by the democrats to decrease social inequality were just full of shit.
So instead, the old voice of nationalism spoke louder.
Ciro agrees with analysis of Can't get you out of my head by Adam Curtis (2021) that this is largely because government is losing all power to do anything meaningful. So the only thing left to do is to speak empty words to calm, or exacerbate, people's fears and hopes.
Ciro believes it is important not hate Trump and his believers, no matter how disgusting Trump might seem, a large part of which is likely theater. We have to try and understand them instead.
Trump's election shows clearly how the democrats let down the poor. This understanding is a good thing. It shows that we all have to make greater efforts to help the poor. Just voting for some random democrat candidate who doesn't really care every four years is not enough.
Another positive point of Trump's election is that it further highlighted the power of social media even further: it now feels more likely than ever before that anyone can run for office, since a president without any previous political office was elected (of course, being filthy reach helps a lot still, which is a problem). And this further highlights the need for regulate social media, to prevent events such as the deplatforming of Donald Trump
We should calmly analyze and understand how someone that tries their best to appear disgusting managed to win. Some interesting analyses of Trump's character:
  • www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2016/06/the-mind-of-donald-trump/480771/ The Mind of Donald Trump by Dan P. McAdams (2016):
    It was as if the golden-haired guest sitting across the table were an actor playing a part on the London stage.
    "It was Donald Trump playing Donald Trump," Griffin observed. There was something unreal about it.
    and the author comments:
    My aim is to develop a dispassionate and analytical perspective on Trump, drawing upon some of the most important ideas and research findings in psychological science today.
    which is exactly the right way to approach things.
Most damning moments:
  • about women:
  • corruption
    • This was a beautiful comment, since it highlights not only that Trump is corrupt, but also that highlights that the others are corrupt, which is why the people elected him. TODO find video www.vox.com/2015/8/6/9114565/donald-trump-debate-money:
      Q: You've also supported a host of other liberal policies, you've also donated to several Democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton included, Nancy Pelosi. You explained away those donations saying you did that to get business related favors. And you said recently, quote, when you give, they do whatever the hell you want them to do.
    TRUMP: You better believe it... I will tell you that our system is broken. I gave to many people. Before this, before two months ago, I was a businessman. I give to everybody. When they call, I give. And you know what? When I need something from them, two years later, three years later, I call them. They are there for me. And that's a broken system.

Fifth Republican Primary Debate - Main Stage - December 15 2015 on CNN
. Source. This perfectly summarizes the spectrum of republican politics. The only candidate who said anything decent were the two least popular ones, notably:
  • Rand Paul, saying that interventionism in the Middle East was a failure (Jeb notably still wants to repeat his brother's mistakes!), and supporting freedom of speech rather than censorship and violation of privacy
  • Carly Fiorina, saying that the people must take the country back
The others are mostly fear-mongering and saying "we will destroy ISIS", to avoid actually dealing with the more important questions: the people have no power anymore.
