Perfect as misogynistic male.
A perfect horrific characterization of the worst of the crumbling patriarchy.
Trump’s example has encouraged the callous disregard of women, minorities, non-Christian religions, the LGBT communities and non-whites. He is the penultimate example of male entitlement and an inherent narcissist intrinsic to every male within the patriarchal structure. Anyone who is not Trump is an enemy to be crushed and is analogous to unaware male thinking and behaviors. (Of course many men have or are recognizing the gross power imbalances within the patriarchy and are seeking to work on it within themselves and outwardly as well. The first problem is to recognize there is a problem.)
The requirements of world community necessitate cooperation and a philosophy that states: “What I do to you, I do to myself.”
It’s inevitable that he appeared in our zeitgeist as the patriarchy begins its long fall from grace as the model in which we conduct ourselves. This hierarchical structure no longer works because the male as ruler is gone, meaning that it is no longer supported energetically.
“What I do to you, I do to myself.”
We only need look at the complex problems of climate change and the community between nations needed to solve this problem to see the eventual demise of the patriarchy. The requirements of world community necessitate cooperation and a philosophy that states: “What I do to you, I do to myself.”
The partisanship of politicians and people focused on division is orchestrated by old world rich and powerful old boy network devised to stop cooperation.
“What I do to you, I do to myself.” = “You” includes all peoples, all animals, all plants, the ecology and being of earth. It does not make “you” into an object for manipulation, nor does it in “doing” dismiss, diminish, revile, denigrate or render you invisible. The action of “doing” allows equal footing for relationship to develop and grow in a sacred world of partnership.
If I disrespect you, dishonor you, am violent, I deny your sacredness, your being, and your right to thrive and exist with me in the world. If I do this I am acting in the same way towards myself and making myself an object – denying that I am sacred.
To defeat him is to offer a progressive solution of community that is so irresistible
The partisanship of politicians and people focused on division is orchestrated by old world rich and powerful old boy network devised to stop cooperation. Trump is the penultimate manipulator of bickering, fomenting anger and rage to keep us stuck.
To defeat him is to offer a progressive solution of community that is so irresistible that even Trump would want to join. Of course he would have to abandon his pathological narcissism, which is highly improbable.
Everything the Trump personifies do not give in to hatred, anger, this is what he foments to keep negative attention on himself.* Minimize venting and focus your superhero character on your Change Agent persona. Perform an action a day to support progress and an equal playing field for all.
Find the goodness within that supports the common good and go forward with that reshaping capitalism and returning democracy to a common sense intelligence of the people.
