The 76 million who voted Democrat are congratulated because:
You chose hope and unity, decency, science and, yes, truth.
As for the 70 million hopeless, disruptive, indecent, irrational liars who did not make that choice, it seems unlikely that they will be as impressed by the healing platitudes about unity.
We are again at a turning point that makes it impossible to predict how things will develop.
I still see no signs of a left emerging. But there is an opening for a movement that really does unite people against the populist demagogues on both sides.
I don't claim to have much understanding of how things are developing in Australia, let alone America.
I don't believe either the Universities or media were ever oriented towards telling the truth, nor that they have recently been taken over by some alien force antithetical to their previous orientation.
I think corporate liberals are just continuing to be corporate liberals.
Its just that this is becoming increasingly ridiculous.
A movement that expressed the same disgust that corporate liberals have for celebrity con artists like Trump and that Trumpists have for the corporate liberals should be able to form a very broad united front.
What's still missing though is an actual program as to how things should be changed.
There are pressing issues in the USA that will come to a head quickly.
