“What is compelling about engaging with his vision is that it’s a rush.
It's a rush of shameless hate; it's a hit of arrogant ignorance; it's the
satisfaction in moments of empty victory; it is the nihilistic intensity of
potential chaotic upheaval and destruction. I mean there's no other way to
look at it. There's no foresight. There's no vision of the future. There

"It's the possible annihilation of all progress with no real plan. It's the
elation from the fantasy of complete moral bankruptcy. It's the
possibility, and I believe this and I know some of you people who are my
fans and who listen to the show are conservatives, you're Republicans and
you know in your heart this isn't the guy. You know it. You may not like
her and that may be driving you, and I get that.

"But what it is, what is really at the heart of people that are passionate
about Trump winning is it is the possibility of evil winning. And I'm not
talking about winning an election. I'm talking about the eternal struggle,
and maybe I'm being a little dramatic, but I don't think Trump is Hitler at
all. I think he fucking Satan.


A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they
shall never sit in.

-Greek proverb

“Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed immaturity.
Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance
from another. This immaturity is self- imposed when its cause lies not in
lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without
guidance from another. Sapere Aude! ‘Have courage to use your own
understand-ing!—that is the motto of enlightenment.

--Immanuel Kant
