Τραμπισμός: η εικόνα του μέλλοντός μας;
https://www.efsyn.gr/stiles/ypografoyn/251429_trampismos-i-eikona-toy-mellontos-mas

Η πιο εξελιγμένη τεχνολογικά χώρα ενσωματώνει τη μεγαλύτερη πολιτισμική καθυστέρηση και πολιτική αντίδραση, με μεγάλη μερίδα του πληθυσμού να χειραγωγείται ανοιχτά από τους μεγιστάνες δισεκατομμυριούχους των ΜΜΕ που πρόσκεινται στους Ρεπουμπλικανούς, αλλά χρηματοδοτούν πολλές φορές και τα δύο κόμματα.


Αυτό ακριβώς είναι το κόλπο: οι απάτριδες χρηματοτραμπούκοι χρηματοδοτούν-υποδαυλίζουν πάντα και τις δύο μεριές, ώστε να είναι οι ίδιοι στα πράγματα όποιος κι αν κερδίσει τελικά... Το ίδιο έχουν κάνει και στη χώρα μας, όπου χρηματοδοτούν τόσο τους ακροαριστερούς όσο και τους ακροδεξιούς... Κι όπου βγει...

Trump is now planning to defund the Post Office in order to thwart the "vote by mail" movement, which is urgently needed to allow workers to vote.  (U.S. elections are held on a working day — Tuesday.)  Aren't Greek elections held on a non-working day?  And is mail-in voting possible in Greece?

No mail-in voting allowed. Elections are always held on a non-working day.
Trump's behaviour is characteristic of his fellow autocrats—Putin, Erdogan, etc.

The defamation of Trump is scheduled by the Cabal (Dark) Elite, which is trying to not lose their grip on (global) power, manipulation and control. The true battle however is evil vs bad, thus, rather a cesspit battle...

I wish some day in-mail voting become at least acceptable in Greece. Unfortunately, there is a technophobic trend which prevails in Greece with respect to such issues. Whenever "human rights" are involved, everyone has a pseudo-argument against technology.

Sounds a bit like the conspiracy theory of QAnon:
"there is a worldwide cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who rule the world, essentially, and they control everything. They control politicians, and they control the media. They control Hollywood, and they cover up their existence, essentially. And they would have continued ruling the world, were it not for the election of President Donald Trump. Now, Donald Trump in this conspiracy theory knows all about this evil cabal's wrongdoing. But one of the reasons that Donald Trump was elected was to put an end to them, basically. And now we would be ignorant of this behind-the-scenes battle of Donald Trump and the U.S. military—that everyone backs him and the evil cabal—were it not for 'Q.' And what 'Q' is—is basically a poster on 4chan, who later moved to 8chan, who reveals details about this secret behind-the-scenes battle, and also secrets about what the cabal is doing and also the mass sort of upcoming arrest events through these posts."[Wikipedia s.v. "QAnon"]

However, it seems true that, whatever the names and/or terminology, we are witnessing a battle of 'evil vs. bad'. We have practically no choice. Whether one supports Trump or the NGO-leftists, it's one and the same thing: the consequences are destructive for the whole world in either case. Truly free-thinking people (who are neither liberal nor fascist; who are no '-ists' whatsoever) -i.e. the good ones- have no institutional representation, so they're virtually non-existent in terms of political influence.

I am not pro-Trump neither pro-Q.

Επιχειρήσεις, χρέη, μηνύσεις... Τι περιμένει τον Ντ. Τραμπ;

Μπορεί ο Αμερικανός πρόεδρος να μην έχει αποδεχθεί ακόμα την ήττα του, αλλά αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι μπορεί να παραμείνει στον Λευκό Οίκο για πάντα. «Έξω» τον περιμένουν δικαστικές μάχες, προβληματικές επιχειρήσεις και χρέη.
Μια εβδομάδα μετά τις εκλογές στις ΗΠΑ και ο Τζο Μπάιντεν έχει αρχίσει να σχεδιάζει το μέλλον ως εκλεγμένος πρόεδρος, ενώ ο Ντόναλντ Τραμπ απέχει του δημόσιου βίου - και κατά το CNN - και από την διακυβέρνηση της χώρας, απασχολημένος με τις ανά τη χώρα καταγγελίες του για νοθεία στις εκλογές.

Εάν δεν υπάρξει κάποια δραματική εξέλιξη πάντως, ο Ντόναλντ Τραμπ θα πρέπει έτσι κι αλλιώς να μετακομίσει από τον Λευκό Οίκο το αργότερο στις 20 Ιανουαρίου. Και μετά; Κυνήγι από τους εισαγγελείς, βουνά από χρέη, προβληματική οικογένεια και οικογενειακές επιχειρήσεις, αλλά και η Trump TV, ένα πιθανό εφαλτήριο για μια νέα αρχή...

Can Trump Pardon Himself? Jane Mayer on Trump’s Desperate Bid to Stay in Power & Avoid Prosecution
President Trump has only made one brief public appearance since the election was called for Joe Biden, and his Twitter feed is filled with conspiracy theories about widespread voter fraud, which state elections officials have repeatedly rejected. His refusal to concede has complicated President-elect Biden’s transition, and senior Republicans have mostly aligned behind Trump or stayed silent as he continues his desperate legal campaign to overturn the election results in several key states that won Biden the presidency. New Yorker staff writer Jane Mayer says Trump has a lot at stake due to the litany of lawsuits and criminal investigations he faces. “He has many reasons to be concerned,” she says. “If he leaves the White House, he’s going to lose the immunity that goes along with being president.”

Right — if he's not president, he has to fear debt, criminal investigations, lawsuits, and the IRS.  If he can stay in the White House another 4 years, the Statute of Limitations will expire, and he'll be home free.  No wonder he's clinging to power so desperately!

Trump needs no help from anyone with regard to his defamation. He does a pretty good job of it himself. His support to fossil fuel moguls, his self-centeredness, arrogance, racism, misogynism, divorce from... truth and science, his love affairs with dictators all over the world, his foul language, all that is overpowering evidence regarding his state of mind and his motivation. It is so sad to see all those inane conspiracists rallying around such profoundly self-centered and inhumane individuals in a fit of collective post-truth delirium. It reminds me of how serial killers tend to get hundreds of love letters in jail by pining women. Power, perhaps specifically the power of evil, attracts all sorts of mentally unbalanced people. They are all around us. And their profound stupidity, to echo Cipolla, can only be underestimated at our own risk. And at the risk of the destruction of this planet.
