Breathing room and... the behemoth stumbles on for another 20 years under slightly less incompetent management? Plenty more damage to humans & nonhumans to be done in the long term IMO, not that this would be any consolation to the immediate victims of the Orange Man's policies admittedly. I'm reminded of this essay from the last election where the author says she would prefer Trump's fascists to Hillary's grinding on of a torturous status quo: |
'What Trump’s boys have for me is a noose- but that’s the choice I’m facing, a lifetime of grueling poverty, or apocalypse. Yeah I know, not fun and games- the shouts, the smashing glass, the headlights on the lawn, but what am I supposed to do, raise my kid to stay one step ahead of the inspectors and don’t, for the love of god, don’t ever miss a payment on your speeding ticket? A noose is something I know how to fight. A hole in the frame of my car is not. A lifetime of feeling that sense, that “ohhhh, shiiiiiit…” of recognition that another year will go by without any major change in the way of things, little misfortunes upon misfortunes… a lifetime of paying a grand a month to the same financial industry busily padding the 401k plans of cyclists in spandex, who declare a new era of prosperity in America? Who can find clarity, a sense of self, any kind of redemption in that world?
#### it. Give me the fascists, I’ll know where I stand…
But I went ahead and took a democratic ballot regardless. And voted for Sanders. And as long as chumps like me keep doing that, we’ll keep getting the Clintons we deserve.' - https://morecrows.wordpress.com/2016/05/10/unnecessariat/
But yeah, happy to agree to disagree. I will graciously acknowledge that your pov isn't pure evil that will pave the way for Satan and all his demons
