Why do people post things like this?
For the "i told you so" moment when something happens? Yes... Indeed. Always an imagined "need to tell people" because the end of the world is around
Don't get me wrong, affordances abound left and right - Donald J Trump "I love war" would indeed cause world war 3, if he got into power, the world
indeed would be predicted to fall into mayhem; but its conditional. I do not know tomorrow and do not pretend to know. I see a certain probability
before me: Hillary Clinton - sane looking, sane talking, with a pretty good history, being represented by an insane person - an actual real life
businessman who, for some strange reason, parades himself as an "outsider", as if the business world he comes from wasn't as or even more cutthroat
than the political world he criticizes. It amazes me that people cannot make out these differences when this man makes his claims: why can't they see
his embedded interests? Or how his history of dishonesty, cutthroatness, misogyny, and who-knows-what-else is a function of a pure objectivism - ala
Ayn Rand; a man who cares only for himself and considers speech to be nothing more than masquerade to get what you want from "gullible" others. This
persons relation to feelings and the cause of his feelings is occluded by his advantaged upbringing and continuous experience of dominating others.
"If you want a world war and untold suffering, vote for Trump."
I agree - the above statement is legitimate. It's scary that such a man could be so close to getting power.
That said, you needn't get paranoid. Look around this site and behold its many unfulfilled predictions; hundreds upon hundreds of doomsday images
which consume the attention and the mental life of the people who conceive them.
Unfortunately, few exercise a dual awareness - an inside-outside perspective, where how I think things are is contrasted and weighed against
contending possibilities which hold hold an ontological status of being true. So, Hillary may win, Trump may peacefully concede, and everyone come to
the sane awareness that its better to talk then to destroy.
