DONALD TRUMP HAS NOTHING TO SAY THAT SHOWS A REAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE ISSUES
SO HE MAKES FACES TO FOOL YOU INTO THINKING HE KNOWS SOMETHING
This website began as an examination of human relationships, but the climate crisis caused me to turn to that issue. Now the two have merged in my mind. The fundamental sociolological and spiritual concept of reciprocity, always lingering in my mind as fundamental to civilization, has come to the fore as something we must understand as critical to morality and union. It is the foundation of how we treat and understand each other and thus addresses the difficulties we face. So the next step is to understand reciprosity and apply it to the problems of our civilization. A second necessity is to expand the context of our thinking by bringing to the fore what science knows about our origins. The great writers of history did not have before them the knowledge of how the universie originated, how our species evolved and developed, nor what we know about the meaning of race. Pondering this knowledge will change us, I believe, for the better. It will cause us to question the very meaning of our existence and give us a sense of the stunning magnitude of the cosmic events that brought us here. A consequence is that we do not question the meaning of our very existence nor have a sense of the stunning magnitude of the cosmic events that brought us here. But even more important is that we do not even think about the fundamental capabilities of consciousness and sentience that make us who we are, and so limit tragically our ability to comprehend reciprocity and the satisfaction, mental gratification and joy that comes from a full use of our minds.
I have begun to suspect that President Trump makes faces when he has nothing intelligent to say. He would make a great photographic exhibit.
WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF A PERFECT STORM of negligence, misinformation, no information and a President with a technical IQ of zero.
In virtually every criticism President Trump makes, it is not a criticism of the issues, but anger at disagreement with him. He has made technical comments on other issues that indicate he knows utterly nothing. How he ever came to thinking of climate change as a "hoax" leaves me speechless.
And he would have to be the one to lead the effort.
To succeed under the best of conditions would be a close call. To succeed with a mindless support of coal, is an impossibility.
Trump also shows his vacant mind and incredible by meddling in military technical issues. Recently he criticized the Navy for substituting electromagnetic launchers for carrier planes in place of antiquated steam catapults. It is insane for him to think he knows anything about this. I am never sure whether to say President Trump will go down in history, because I am never sure there will be a history.
