How could this happen? The only explanation I can find is that elected leaders failed to meet voters' legitimate expectations and aspirations and that this failure led electorates to become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism. Quite simply, many people felt that the elites had stolen their democracy.
Thanks for bring it back to topic RCADE regardless of what you may think of Soro's past... and what he did for survival he showed some clear insight to the situation at hand.
If you consider that Hitler was elected on the heels of a similar national mood were are experiencing here. For all the money we spend on wars... it sucks being unable to claim a clear victory in nearly 70 years. I really don't think Trumphole is like Hitler at all... for obvious reasons... Trumphole never served in the military defending his nation nor has he ever been hungry a day in his fekken life... nor has he had his skill sets rejected in any meaningful way or served time in prison. Adolf experienced all those things. When Hitler spoke about patriotism, sacrifice, hunger, rejection, imprisonment... the things of disenfranchisement.... he actually knew how all those things felt.... and believe it or not he had genuine empathy for those he spoke to when he wanted to make countries of the Reichsrat great again.
Trumphole only parrots the words... and for most part its all show biz... because that is what he does... heck rumor has it he read... make that studied Mein Kampf... and there is no doubt in my mind if that is true... that he probably he used what he read there much in the same way Hitler used operatic theatrics to bring the crowd to it feet. That is why his rallies were so haunting and familiar. I don't think Trumphole is necessarily racist and completely sexist... but he does suffer from the systemic traits of growing up in a country where that culture once ruled... ergo he was able to express the feelings and shake loose from the woodwork those who still embraced those bygone American standards... and yes give them voice too.
I have been saying for many years in this forum that I believed based on observation of past historical trends that when income disparity rooted in economic trends becomes so wide people are going to rise up. Personally I see Trumphole as the disenfranchised breaking wind before taking the huge and nasty dump. He got in promising them some relief from the situation they are in. I predict it is going to get ugly... uglier than it is now.... mostly because as it was with Bushhole ...Trumphole is a silver spooner who doesn't understand what it is like to flinch at the price of a $4 loaf of bread. Trumphole may even have good intentions... Same as Bushhole... and even feel a tad altruistic about this mission he is on... same as Bushhole... but he doesn't really know how the mind works among those the rabble that reach bedrock digging out a living and feel there is no where else to go.
It fascinates me in places like KY, WV, and OH where coal was the good job mostly because unions fought for decent wages raising what were once considered the lowly profession to a level of income respectability... in the same way the unions transformed factory work... or teaching. Trumphole does not know the mindset of people who have done the labor he himself farms outside the country to be done on the cheap so that his profits remain high and ... in reality he wouldn't hire his constituents anyway... because they want too much for their services. Why should he hire them... when he can find others willing to negotiate a deal for a lower price... and he doesn't have to look at conditions of unregulated work zones?
The rabble has been cornswaggled... by an actor... again!
