The Trump Cult

The Trump cult appears to be shrinking despite Trump receiving more votes in the 2020 election than in 2016. Look no further than Rupert Murdoch jumping ship to prove that the cult’s days are numbered. Cults rise then fall; that’s what they do. The cult of Trump was fueled well before he was sworn in…

Certified Reality

Our shared reality has become complicated. It always was complicated, but now nefarious actors have complicated it further. Defining what reality is has always been a complicated question for scientists and philosophers. Unfortunately, reality has become a serious point of contention in the United States. We will explore the shared problem with reality, why it’s…

How Do We Change The System?

How do we change the system when the system doesn’t want to change? The political systems in the United States have been broken for quite some time. The political system has been ripe for change for many years, and we have had some success in changing it. Many believe that we need strong and incorrupt…

Cults & Cycles

In the United States, we are witnessing yet another cult in action. Trumpism is a cult, and people that support trump are cultists. Trumpism has all the hallmarks of other cults like Scientology, Jehovah witnesses, etc. The difference with Trumpism is that it’s operating out in the open for all to see. What Is A…

Lies and Corruption

When someone lies to you, how does it feel? Do you feel betrayed? Does it make you lose respect for the person that lied to you? Have you ever been lied to by a business? Was the product packaging misleading? Did you get scammed? Did you buy another product from a company that lied to…

Drain The Swamp ❓

Drain the swamp is a catchphrase directed at the special interest boogeyman that intends to destroy the lives of U.S. citizens. In 2016 Donald J. Trump made a closing argument that the American people can save themselves from The Swamp by voting for him. It was a compelling argument coming from an outsider that appeared…

Double Standards

I’m angry. I’m tired of the double standards in our society. If you’re rich, if you’re a woman, if you’re a man, if you’re white, if you’re black, all of it. Equality will never exist. It’s an aspiration; it’s an ideal, it’s something we forever work towards. There is no finish line for equality. Once…

Half-mast for the Republican Party

Half-mast for the Republican party is well in order. It has been a long time coming, and we witnessed its death on September 29th, 2020. Republicans will be hard-pressed to recover from Trump’s representation of the party as a racist, lying, fear stirring, and a combative party of disgusting behavior. The flag is set to…

Fascism, a Reality

Fascism is becoming a reality as I write these words. Much of the rhetoric from many Trump supporters is the language of an Ultranationalist. I never thought I would have to learn that word in my lifetime. Honestly, I had no idea this word existed until today. To: Trump Supporters If you are a Trump…

The road to hell is paved with good intentions

The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and that’s not hyperbole. However, it is chock full of religious dogma. It’s a pithy observation packed with meaning; it is better to phrase this truth without the religious dogma. Life is suffering, we’re all part of this life whether we believe in hell or not.…
