#5 the Torture Bill was a red line for me. But more than that, I just don't think he's going to cut it.

I'm taking the long view. 2028. The Progressive Alliance, led by Caroline Lucas, Clive Lewis and Layla Moran (or similar) break the mould, once and for all. The younger demographic get out and vote in large numbers, as they did in 2017. FPTP consigned to the graveyard of history, where it belongs.

Well yes -- 'the people' will eventually get fed up with shouty strongmen who only know how to fuck up bigly. It was the same with Hitler.

Unfortunately, it was too late by the time they got wise to Hitler.

Standard procedure: give them no real choices until you can move on to give them more no real choices.

Perhaps the technology has evolved enough so people can see the game faster, but it doesn't look like it to me at this point.

People need to wake up faster and voice their discontent faster. I'd think they would be learning by now, but the liars are learning too.

Nobody (like Trump) comes out and says what they know is going to appeal to the ignorance they can pay to find out is out there for them to exploit.

People have to be aware that they can be exploited by big data mining more than ever before. Their every move on the net can be tracked and an exploitation curve developed.
