An objection to #MAGA (so approval for @realDonaldTrump and #QAnon) is that there is a "faith" element: we are investing our energy into a political movement whose ultimate goal we cannot know. My current thought is "you betcha!"; better than blind obesciance to liberal doctrine.
That doesn't mean one is an uncritical adherent, offering a carte blanche wth no desire to hold temporal power to account. Nor does it mean one is unaware of the Hegelian method, or the risks of presenting only two options to the exclusion of others that may be more desirable.
My best sense of the situation is that there is a multi-generational and transnational system of criminal and illegitimate power (aka #DeepState), and that genuine warriors are involved in an epic struggle against it. The good vs evil framing fits the facts; relativism unhelpful.
As judges of character, so many people are looking rather unskilled right now, as the criminality of the Clintons and their allies is exposed. We've all been exposed as fools to some degree, but some have corrected course earlier than others. Discernment success deserves respect.
Reasonable people could disagree over the nature of the world we would like to inhabit. This is in some ways less of a truth movement, and more of an "anti-lie" campaign. We are making alliances against such evil across boundaries that otherwise were unbroachable, hence #WWG1WGA.
I have noted some early signs of those whose worldview is collapsing engaging in extreme projection. Rather than reflect on how the factual outcome is 180 degrees against their media-supplied narrative, they keenly work to shut down contradictory information.
If you experience a communication from such a person as being arrogant or condescending then "feelings are facts". You are perfectly entitled to say so, and request that they adopt a respectful and mannered approach. Their belief in being "right" is NOT an excuse for rudeness.
The interactions I have had with what must be thousands of people tells me that #MAGA is grounded in real life experience of the wrongdoing of the #DeepState criminals, hard personal historical research over years, and a courageous intent to reverse these wrongdoings.
Holding one's boundaries can be hard; having to shove someone back outside of your legitimate space for free speech isn't fun. Your timeline is YOUR timeline; not Twitter's, nor anyone else's. Within the limit of legality, you should feel unconstrained in saying what you believe.
