There is no platform in a cult, especially a celebrity cult. But there is a dead man’s switch in there somewhere, as there is in all cults. When Trump feels he’s no longer in charge, he will push it. There’s a strong fear yet longing for death in the GOP; the members will happily drink the cyanide laced orange Kool-Aid. Thanatos dances with Eros as the world burns and floods at the same time.
Stay tuned. Japan is about to be hit by a second typhoon within a week. Sudan is experiencing historic flooding.
The GOP’s “herd immunity” approach to Covid-19 is a take one for the team tactic driven by a philosophy that considers being a loser a fate worse than death.
Was there a point to this article ? I seem to have missed entirely.
