Besides the fact that calling someone an “ignorant” is a very ‘Trump’ thing to do in the first place, what if the real problem is that we allowed ‘it’ to become a ‘system’ in the first place?
This way, after the process of learning and teaching – gathering new information and understanding about the world and passing it further to your contemporaries and to the next generations – has become a ‘system’, the ‘open market’ for ideas has become a very well – actually very badly – controlled oligopoly.
Trump, as a social phenomenon, is nothing but yet another symptom of this ‘malaise’ – the incapacity of the contemporary society to make room for everybody. Among other reasons, simply because information no longer flows freely around but is, tighter and tighter, by the ‘system’.
The simple fact that Trump, if elected, would only make things worse… almost doesn’t matter anymore…
Coming back to the ‘system’, the only way to fix it is to open it up, widely. If we continue to allow ‘it’ to divide us into ‘insiders’ and ‘outsiders’ (read ‘ignorants’) we will actually perpetuate ‘the problem’.
