Thinking about Trump and Antichrist mythology
Trump has made a point of saying he doesn’t drink alcohol and never has. He seems to have an addictive personality though. He’s clearly incapable of pulling himself away from Twitter.
No one has asked if he takes prescription drugs.
I think he takes something. They say he hardly sleeps. Is he manic? That’s a symptom of mania. Maybe he’s bipolar.
He seems to have a grandiose view of himself. It’s not a normal thing. I know a lot of weirdos. (I love them all)
He’s a new kind of weird, in my experience.
Politicians have to be a little in love with themselves, a little grandiose, to think they can run the free world.
This isn’t that exactly. It seems like a suped up neediness. I mean, he’s managed to get all this way on whatever that is. I think it says more about US that he’s president, than anything else. The TV generation runs the country now. We’re definitely lost.
We desperately need a person that brings people together. Having said that, that person might be the real evil we all fear. I don’t want a savior, or someone selling themselves as such. That would be way more antichrist – y. Everybody gets fooled.this person is the answer. La la la.
I’ve watched too many antichrist shows. But, scary always appealed to me. I prefer fictional scary
Just read a theory that Putin is the antichrist. The problem with all these theories is that they’re all bullshit.
I also read many pages suggesting Trump is the antichrist. He isn’t. Hes too weak. And people aren’t going to follow him. The way the antichrist myth sets up, it would be more likely that he’s a precursor. He’s so awful that we become desperate for someone that can “save us” save the country, save the world. That person will be well liked and respected. People will follow him or her or it. (That’s the biblical version, more or less)
My theory used to be that the antichrist is a thing, like television, or the internet. The antichrist is mythology. That’s definite. But, there’s a bit of a warning about what kind of person might lead us all to destruction, via biblical prose. Remember, these people who wrote the Bible were witness to the fall of Rome. They could have been trying to tell future generations a fairytale with grains of truth, morality tales, that could save future people from making the same mistakes.
We can recover from Trump. As long as he doesn’t start shooting off nukes. Then, who cares about myth and legend?
Life does not feel the same as it did 2 years ago, before the campaign season started.
Trumps wild threats and insane Twitter account genuinely makes me tense. So, things like the end of the world have popped up when I’m sitting in bed, like now.
I’m not a scared little bunny. Im more inclined to get mean when I’m cornered. I’m just wondering where this is headed. Im not letting politicians get us all killed, or allow them to kill millions of people in some far away place. I’m sure people are starting to think about what we do to defend ourselves from our own president if need be.
Who is going to do that? These Republicans seemed ready to fall in line. It didn’t seem to matter how far he went. I found that uniquely disturbing. It really was like watching the rise of fascism,. And how easily people fall in line. Too easily.
Nuclear war puts everything at risk. It’s completely unacceptable. Someone will have to drag that idiot king by his crazy haircut out of the Whitehouse…. And have him institutionalized. What I worry about is, that won’t happen.
The American people will only be safe when there’s peace… . Everywhere. And we should be willing to stand against a rogue government that would put us all at risk
