No one is saying this, because it’s not the kind of thing you say out loud, but just like the hidden Trump voters who have never stood up and said why they voted for him – they voted for him because our civilization sucks for a huge number of people – it’s so bad that people are literally thinking “maybe if we just completely blow it up and kill millions of people, it will get rid of the problems”. If you aren’t one of the people who has this excitement about the collapse of our civilization – you just won’t get it. I’m not a person who voted for Trump – his entire being was simply too abhorrent to contemplate, but if he hadn’t of been a sort of modern day Hitler with his racism, fear mongering about religious differences, and blatant woman hating – I probably would have. He appeals to that part of me that simply wants to see our entire civilization and worldview blown the fuck up. By the same token, I’m not rooting for a nuclear war – or a war of any sort because I understand the human individual suffering involved – I can see the difference between an idea and a reality – but I have to admit, there is a part of me that is rooting for this to happen. Intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually – I know that this conflict which is brewing is atrocious and will probably lead to the most suffering, death, and destruction our history has ever experienced – but there is that inner part of me which I am exposing now, but which most people will not expose, which is positively gleeful at the prospect of this greedy, lying, son-of-a-bitch civilization where success comes fromfucking over your neighbors or the people you are suppossed to represent being completely destroyed so that we, as humans, can have the chance to build something better. The hidden Trump voters already pushed the red button when they voted for him – I promise you, this is what they want. I can only hope that wiser heads prevail – but then, if they do not – then it’s probably for the best that we witness carnage and destruction on such a grand scale that reason can stand a chance in the rebuilding – except that as World War I and World War II and nearly every other war have proved – our reason seems to only last a few generations before we go back to being asshole Homo sapiens.
