Waarom Trump de verkiezingen wintGeplaatst op: 24 juli 2016
“Finally, do not discount the electorate’s ability to be mischievous or underestimate how any millions fancy themselves as closet anarchists once they draw the curtain and are all alone in the voting booth. It’s one of the few places left in society where there are no security cameras, no listening devices, no spouses, no kids, no boss, no cops, there’s not even a friggin’ time limit. You can take as long as you need in there and no one can make you do anything. You can push the button and vote a straight party line, or you can write in Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. There are no rules. And because of that, and the anger that so many have toward a broken political system, millions are going to vote for Trump not because they agree with him, not because they like his bigotry or ego, but just because they can. Just because it will upset the apple cart and make mommy and daddy mad. And in the same way like when you’re standing on the edge of Niagara Falls and your mind wonders for a moment what would that feel like to go over that thing, a lot of people are going to love being in the position of puppetmaster and plunking down for Trump just to see what that might look like.
Quote uit de weloverwogen, tragi-hilarische prognosticatie van Michael Moore, waarom Trump de verkiezingen zal winnen.
Eenzelfde voorspelling had je mutatis mutandis ook op Brexit kunnen loslaten. Of kan je straks op Wilders loslaten. Democratie verkeert in zijn tegendeel zonder verantwoordelijkheidsbesef in het stemhokje.
