Issue: Donald Trump
Best thing anyone can do regarding him is to examine him rationally.
Like any politician, he's a mixture of good and bad.
Some criticisms valid, some are not. They can be debunked.
We'll start by debunking the invalid criticisms of him, and then we'll explain the valid ones.
Coal is bad. No reason to still invest in it.
Obama used state dept diplo infrastructure to lobby other countries to start fracking.
If you hate him for coal, and youre intell honest and morally consistent, you hate obama too. And if you dont hate obama, you dont hate him either.
2. Attacking journalism
His targets arent journalists, stenos
Actual journalists have less animosity toward him than corporate stenos
Much bigger threats to journalism, like targeting of whistlblowers (obama and manning, cia words on snowden, assange, netanyahu mowing and none of lamestream cared, internet censorship floodgates opening, fb removing any news it doesnt like, google sowing discord
Attitude toward immigration is wrong but not extreme.

7. Putin ally
Good thing, no war, russia necessary for geo balance and peace.
Technocrats hate russia because its a bastion of natural consciousness
8. Conspiracy theories
Everyone knows theres a deepstate. Only controversy is whom its made of and what they ultimately want (link)
1. Hes propping up a system thats unsustainable anyway, making the old work thereby delaying the new
2. Hes letting repub party feed him an agenda without questioning
Presidency is about more than that
Hated because he represents a cultural shift - a resurgence in the power of men and the masculine principle.

The global resurgence of rightwing
