    Here and in your post “Thinking Globally In A World Gone Mad” you seem to agree with Thomas Friedman’s world view of an unproven belief that:

    “It is unquestionably desirable (again, from a utilitarian perspective) to create an open, global economy and to foster a shared human destiny. ”
    Martin Sheff in his book “That should still be us: How Thomas Friedman’s flat world myths are keeping us flat on our backs” both questions such elitist thinking and shows convincingly that it is NOT desirable. That is unless you are a part of the elitist minority that profit the most from the global shifting of the labor force. I am reminded of the priests of unproven religious beliefs that blame the masses for the failures of their gods ie, they just don’t believe strongly enough or are unwilling to make the personal sacrifices necessary for the greater good.

    I don’t personally care for Trump, I voted libertarian rather than the lesser of two evils, but to say that it is sad to see so many people hope for him to succeed seems like the fake tears of the priests when their false beliefs are questioned by the masses.

    • Trump is the priest in your analogy. Don’t forget the next big rally with his followers is being held in Mar-a-Lago on April 1.
