Where do we go from here? What is the solution?
I work with people who are neck deep in believing everything the Trump/Giuliani/Limbaugh bullshit machine throws out there. They constantly repeat anecdotal conspiracy theories that they believe without question, without research, and without any doubt. One of my business partners had a brother who worked on capital hill for 14 years, and his oldest daughter is pretty high up in the Trump administration, so obviously he knows everything there is to know about politics and the inside workings of Trump. These are the people you read about. They are 100% sure we just underwent a coup financed by George Soros, that we will be a full on socialist nation within a year, and that our guns will all be taken away by this time next year to quell the righteous rebellion that is sure to come. Those are near verbatim quotes I hear regularly. One of them even said to me that we better enjoy this year’s hunting trip, because we will probably never be able to hunt again now that Biden is President.
My question is this: What can possibly be done to overcome tens of millions of people who believe the crap that Trump has put out there? They are so deeply entrenched, and since they believe without evidence, evidence does not sway their opinions at all. I can’t even have a rational discussion with these people, who are all otherwise intelligent good hearted people. This is truly a cancer that the Trump cult is sick with, and it is frightening to think that this could grow even further beyond what it is.
