I'd be happier in a world without flags. I don't want you to announce our politics to me. Show me who you are by your behaviors and the company you keep. We will agree and disagree on a range of things, but we should be able to coexist without belonging to a tribe.

What am I thinking?   Due to Trump and his movement's refusal to accept voting outcomes and the active measures to suppress vote counting, Trump is shaping up to be a prime assassination candidate.  The consequences would terrible for the USA and the rest of the world.  Hundreds if not thousands of Americans are likely to die in the aftermath.   Markets would crash.

 

If that happens, I’d be surprised and disappointed. It would make him a marytr and cement in the Deep State crap.

And, if anyone was a prime assassination candidate, it was that foreign-born Muslim black man who wanted to take your guns and destroy America that lived in that house before him.
 
That is the fear.

Instead of assassinating Obama, the USA was gifted Trump as president.  Aside from the fact that Obama is a very likeable guy and his story is a terrific credit to the real greatness of the USA, I am not sure which outcome would have been worse.  So many have died since Trump took office.

we get mired/stuck in a cognitive bias bubble by media (their incentive? great for ratings, not so good for us)

social media is swollen and bulbous with hateful bias kindling (a lot, maybe 40% provided by bots and trolls)

if we don't have a sound decision making framework as individuals we're primed for the next charlatan that comes along

looking at the other side of the coin and broad brushing the entire tribe as bad is not only wrong, it's foolish/dangerous

canceling people over differing choices/opinions driven by emotion, intuition, instinct, divine revelation, etc. is clearly setting us up for conflict

if our solution building process includes initiating violence on peaceful people we're doing it wrong

That’s because you’re reasonable. You can have a pleasant conversation with the bully, but s/he’s still gonna beat you up. Now what?

hate, as destructive as it is, seems to be the go-to emotional these days

helpful tips on the road to violence and how to get your hate on

it is usually a four step process and looks something like this:

moralize/tribalize

demonize

dehumanize

violence

If he did what he's accused of, and found guilty in a court of law, he should be held accountable no matter what jobs he's held.
