"Against Their Own Interests"


I've just read that many of the white underclass which voted in droves for the Resident-Elect Trump are now fearful of losing what little health care they have. Especially I read those in the former coal mining areas. Black Lung Disease is a major killer there.

Obama care was all they had to treat this now they realize they may lose it.

They foolishly did this to themselves. Trump, and his crew 'said' they would throw away Obama Care. They elected him. What did they expect. I mean other than jobs that can never come back which they would have known if the bothered to inform themselves.


Technology, and globalization has vaporized industrial work.

This election is perhaps the most profoundly tragic example of an entire social group voting against their own interests. For some sadly that angry vote was an act of suicide.

I fear 2017 will be as traumatic as the madness of 2016. Especially when Trump voters slowly realize that 'none' of the fantastic promises their candidate made are practically or legally possible.


Stay Tuned.

Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel — by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
    Aldous Huxley, 1961
