Please... [Nov. 9th, 2016|05:02 pm]

Please, fellow liberals, less of the illiberality.

Try to understand why people who aren't liberals have voted the way they did. No-one is without reasons. No-one has a monopoly on virtue.

And please stop accusing Trump voters of racism and misogyny. It may be true of some. But not all by any means. Don't demonise your opponent. It just deepens the division.

Understand that this election was between two of the least popular candidates ever. There were good reasons for not supporting Hillary. Very good reasons.  Many will have voted for Trump as the lesser of two evils.

And try to rein in the fear and hysteria. Fear is disabling. You're only hurting yourselves.

Ironically the angry idiots who voted for Trump will probably suffer most when he tanks the economy - I doubt the rustbelt towns will survive the closing down of world trade.  It really is Brexit times a million (with guns!).  Here in UK, it's the run-down small towns who voted Brexit who suffer most from the slowdown and the loss of EU funding.  The 'metropolitan elite' in London that they voted to spite will do just fine - better educated, smarter and more adaptable, the metropolitans still have a lock on the wealth generating parts of the economy.  Likewise in USA: the skills of well-educated, smart liberals in New York and California will still be in demand.  But there won't be many jobs left in manufacturing if you can't sell abroad.  Possibly with government subsidies they might survive, but since Trump's about to destroy the tax base and plunge USA into a level of debt that makes the current trillions look like peanuts, there's little chance of that.  And without public money for schools,. their children can't go further.  Pitiful: but evolution in action.

If that happens he won't be the first "revolutionary" leader to give his followers false hope...
