When a society scapegoats a section of itself, it leads to violence & death. Beginning with the scapegoated group, & then - inevitably - spreading way past them, permeating the society.

Why? /1
2/ Because you have to justify the original crime against those you were scapegoating. You have to double-down on it, & anyone who disagrees becomes the next scapegoated group.


And it’s why Trump doubles-down.
3/ Our founders understood this. Which is why they put checks & balances on the power of the leader.

When Contagion showed up across the Atlantic, 200 million lost their lives to it. Excuses were offered of the original offenders: “They were just following orders.”
4/ We fought that excuse, & declared it could never be used again.
We fought Contagion.

Do not think that Trump’s base won’t expand. Contagion grabs onto those who benefitted/ profited from Trump’s policies, yet disagreed with his beliefs...
5/ To protect themselves from the horrific consequences of supporting him originally, they will likely choose the next scapegoated group (libs, Hollywood, Dems, etc), and attract others.
Because the mirror is too awful to face. They double-down too (example: Stephen Ross).
6/ There’s a second power that propels Contagion: The leader has something that other people desire.

In Trump’s case, what they desire is the apparent freedom that his amorality gives him.

He’s free to insult and defy both people and the law.
7/ The most threatening part of his base are these boys/men with their assault rifles & ammo cosplay. They are imitating his amoral will to dominate. They want that. So the 1st part of our society they inflict violence & death upon is the 1st group their leader is scapegoating -
8/ - immigrants & all people of color, especially children.

It will spread.

Third Trump terrorist arrested today alone (at least that have reached the news).
