This battle between chaos and order, is it a battle, or merely an example of the quantum perplexity of our existence like particles versus waves? Are there two realities with individual happenstance, or are they the realities of choice like right or left found within one reality?

Postmodernism, which advocates ideology over facts, would explain the the rise of Trump, would it not?

“Low level ideology” is the fuel of gaslighting, is it not?

Our fore fathers were British, but the influences of the Iroquois hierarchy played a great part in the forming of our political system, did it not?

One person’s political correctiveness is another person’s tyranny, but if it involves facts, then is it not potentially a battle between facts and ideology, which exposes us all to a singular reality that allows for both particles and waves to then coexist, but not necessarily peacefully, which in turn would explain away any quantum suggestion of a dual existence which is masked as two realities in one and rather are together the actual kinetic fuel or dance of our existence, which apparently pursues an innate value?

( and Woodstock adds: “What?!”…. “I don’t have time for this!”…. “Plus, I’m too busy right now putting up a bunch of posters in my nest of Dua Lipa”….. )

If we accept postmodernism as a thing, have we not legitimized Trump? And are not Kellyanne’s “alternative facts” then the currency of an ideology, which are too costly for a democratic society to afford or bear? If postmodernism is a premise, then democratic values like free speech are moot, are they not?

Yeah, he is a sexist ass, and arrogant. But he makes good points about freedom of speech. I kind of agree with Sanders, banning Trump from Twitter may make him even worse.
