Trump so perfectly embodies the worst “ugly American” characteristics. Thinks they are smarter than everyone else, but are idiots; think they deserve to be treated better than everyone else, though they are terrible to others; thinks everyone wants their stuff, though their stuff is random, excessive, ridiculous, and wasteful. They resent people who aren’t just in it for the toys, who seem to actually care about other people- ick- not just themselves. They resent people who have pursued knowledge, have spent their lives learning what makes things work and how to do good with it. Perhaps they know they are living meaningless, soulless lives of unending consumption, waste, and greed, but have a gaping hole left from family who also didn’t care about other people- namely, them- and seemed more concerned with possessions than their “loved ones.”
All of us have fractured souls, yet get on with necessary things. Those attracted to the messages of greed and revenge never got over childhood traumas and inflict their pain on the rest of us because to acknowledge their pain is to acknowledge weakness and fragility. yet they are the most weak and fragile of society, the least stable, the most damaging.
And we have no social mechanisms to relieve it, treat it, reform it, because our social supports have been eroded by capitalism. The end game of capitalism is that there are winners but mostly losers. Our fate is to be mostly fucked up. What a stupid way to run a society. Coronavirus is showing all the cracks, and America is practically nothing but cracks.
