Thoughts On Where We Are, and Where We're Going
#89
I am tempted to believe that the Trump base of right-wing populists will be trouble-makers. Maybe a politician can win by cultivating them as supporters, but having to answer to them will create huge problems. Think of the old racist support for Strom Thurmond or George Wallace that wanted the racism of their 1948 and 1968 campaigns. Going for it means that one loses other voters, so such may not be worth it.
The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist  but instead the people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists -- Hannah Arendt.
