Thank Twitter, Facebook and blogs for the rise of populism and Donald Trump

It’s nothing more than the sliver of vindication to hear a public figure publicly outcry your most deprived and socially detrimental thoughts, that you may have publicly or anonymously posted online.  It doesn’t mean what you think is correct.  It only means that another human shares you views.

There is a cautionary tale for populism.  It’s called the rise of Hitler. This does not mean that folks like Donald Donald Trump will commit a mass genocide.  It does however mean that, if elected, he will pursue his own personal interests without fear of reprisal or contradiction.  And the real fear is that no one really knows what those personal interests actually are.  Maybe not even the candidates themselves before they wield extraordinary powers.
