I listened to a Slate podcast which said that Obama's ideas about race were formed in Hawaii and by having 2 white grandparents.

I can sort of empathise with some of Trump's appeal at a stretch. Why more women voted for him than for Clinton (that is correct?) remains a mystery, as does the gold toilet bowl (urban myth?) as does his support among evangelicals.

I was more influenced by the Bible than I had realised. As in 'What must I do to be saved?' 'Sell all your goods, give the money to the poor and follow me.' or something like that. Once I visited someone in the madhouse. This angelic looking young man looked me directly in the eyes and said, 'You know I'm God, don't you?' I thought it unwise to say 'Yes' so I kept walking. My shrink says that when it comes to this many other psychs call it over-objective thinking, when the reality is that the over-objective thinking is the psych not understanding language as metaphor.

I find it hard to believe Trump just wants to ruin the world. I mean, maybe he does, but why would you want to do that? Why not accept the limits reality provides? What is money anyway? We're not alive for long. Trump is of course a nihilist and said as much somewhere. I suppose if he doesn't read, and just watches Fox? Murdoch makes my skin crawl.

I'm confused by the idea of evil. Hitler was said to be evil but his racial ideas were a fairly accurate translation of the relations between countries onto race that existed before the first war.
