Posted November 16. My son passed me these stick figure video links*, which are entertaining and instructive of how dictators and democratic leaders perpetuate power. Trump instinctively knows the Rules for Rulers* and thus is surrounding himself with people “dim but loyal“, and involving his children in the transition team to manage the issues of “Death and Dynasties.*
Consider where we are in the range between Democracy and Dictatorship as we have seen the rich get richer and the poor get poorer (I love this simple illustration), making it harder for hard-working folks to spend time paying attention to politics. Also consider that if the Koch Brothers (biggest single contributor to the ruling party?) benefit from the Keystone Project, have we provided alternative sources of “treasure” (see the video) which make the interests and power of most citizens less necessary, thus leaning toward dictatorship model?
