I was following the Georgia Senate election results on US media, when I realised that despite their historic importance, a possibly even bigger story was Trump supporters storming the Capitol building and the US government actually fleeing the Senate chamber for their own safety. This was an attempted coup d’état in the most powerful democracy in the world!
Fortunately, one feels secure that the forces o f sanity will prevail, not least because their opponents aren’t very bright, but it’s still scary stuff. In his book, about his first visit to America, th e French philosopher Jean Baudrillard wrote that the United States is the “only remaining primitive society.”These Trumpites and Quanonistes are at least as delusional, if not more so, than the Taliban and their promises of martyrs’ countless virgins in Paradise. In fact, the only real differences are that the former have more sophisticated weaponry and vastly inferior dress sense!
