It is obvious that Trump is a disaster, surprisingly incompetent, and completely without ethical out moral standards. That would put him in the mainstream of US politics if he were not so close to the delusional edge mentally. Attempting to get him removed over election manipulation is a waste of time. Trump himself is a waste of time. The fact that he has surrounded himself with neofascists, white supremacists, and individuals solely concerned with filling their own pockets before they are booted out is dangerous and ought to be corrected quickly but probably won’t.

The problem is that the US has already fallen and there is neither the will nor the energy to do anything but banter about it. We are, unfortunately, in a battle of civilizations but most people currently active in US politics have little or no understanding of what this is about. Trump will probably be impeached over corruption, conflicts of interest i.e. emoluments with Russia almost certainly involved but it isn’t going to make any difference.

We are fully into the fourth industrial revolution and we have no, off the shelf, ideologies to handle full automation and a unified sustainable world economy. We even have the language too talk about it. We need to be discussing a completely different economic and political revolution. Instead we will continue the slide into neonationalist horror.
