"Everyone is too fucking spoiled and wrapped up in their own assholes to function in society anymore" "Personally, I think it's the rapid advancement of technology that has caused this"
^ SO MUCH THIS, RIGHT HERE. Trump is no mastermind, he is a narcissistic spoiled brat, who is the hero of every loser with a twitter account who thinks they are famous. His being in the position he he is is the result of a society concerned with "me" and my followers, "me" and my online persona, "me" "me" "me". This many people can not all live like celebrities, it is not physically possible, but the damn 'net says we can, shows (falsely) that others are, why not you? (because it's not real spanky). But the line between what is real and what is a pipe dream has become so blurry, people can and are being led to believe things that would have had you committed 10 yrs ago. Norms and mores that are necessary to keep a country this large running are being tossed aside, they never applied to the ultra rich, but now everyone is blowing them off....it can't work, it's already falling apart. Rapidly. Trump is not the cause of all this country's problems, but a symptom of a flawed. broken, INSANELY materialistic society. Fuck trump for sure, but fuck our society harder, 97% of us were never supposed to be famous or important on a national level, being a good person in your family/neighborhood is the real deal, not fake internet induced "celebrity". Get over yourself America.
