Yes, it is a very bad feeling. The force of history is not a mindless return to fascism and feudal style rule because a majority of people on this planet know that means the loss of everything very soon.

But America is not on the side of history. It is being overwhelmed and has become bitter and reactionary as the rest of the planet that knows we are not the future.

The very bad feeling is that we are the losers and no longer fit to lead anyone. Past glories, poorly understood are no help.

Our only hope is that enough people decide to care because they are scared and will accept that a rehash of the old will, itself, fail quickly and the younger thinkers will take over. But that is a solution twice removed.

Betting on losers in hope of a rapid failure in order to get the election we desperately need now is drawing to an inside straight. Particularly when the creators of this massive collapse have already padded their nests in Moscow. Their future, they think, is golden.
