A mishandled international crisis, hundreds of thousands of dead Americans, and pure unfettered corruption. But we are lucky. Trump’s destruction of our institutions will present a unique opportunity to rebuild them, in the image of a modern nation-state. His persistence and success have in a way proven that there is no all-powerful shadow government or deep state. It has only proven the existence of cynical opportunists and the woefully misinformed. It has shown that there is not much-preventing everything from going off the rails– but at the same time, it shows us that there is hope for change and progress.
So thank you, Trump supporters, for pushing the cartoon TNT plunger and blowing everything up. Thank you for holding up the mirror and showing us who we are. Thank you for letting us know how you really feel. Thank you for showing us how easy it is to create a movement and build consensus. Thank you for warning us about what we could become. I hope everyone sees the crisis we narrowly avoided. Sure, half the country technically didn’t get what they wanted– but 100% of us should be celebrating today. A closer election would have been a disaster.
