FTinPRC - 2017-07-02

I welcome any thoughts from other posters here as to how to remain positive as a group while
pursuing our goals

I have certainly found Trump's tenure to date as both disconcerting and entertaining.

On the entertainment level, I have been banned twice by Breithart.com for my Disqus assaults on the their 'journalism'.

As a resident of China and a U.S. citizen, I welcome the accelerated decline of U.S. soft power and economic influence brought on my Trump's persona and policies. They are blind to the way they have been manipulated by elites that are beyond national and party identity, living in the world of global capital.

During my months of online sparring with Trump supporters on Breitbart, I have recognized that they are sincere in their fear of the collapse of their 'American Dream': a white majority Christian country with real opportunity for economic growth. They angrily believe that the reason for U.S. economic decline is Democratic 'libtard' policies and values.

England, further along the down escalator of national power than the U.S. and arguably with a superior educational system, has an aged white population that shares such nationalistic conservative views. So likely the U.S. will continue down this path for decades to come.

I am heartened that Trump's incompetence is ameliorated by both the checks and balances of U.S. government (ironically created by men like Trump to minimize populist influence) and his own blatant stupidity. There are many Republican politicians that are younger, smarter and more devious than Trump who share his nationalistic racist views. Fortunately they were not elected president.

We are each responsible for the narratives that we choose about the nature of ourselves and the world. Trump's presidency is an opportunity for each of us to do some 'mental housekeeping'.
