I see Clinton II as a greater danger to the world and a lesser danger to Americans with Trump being a greater danger to Americans and a lesser danger to the world. So it isn’t so much greater/lesser as differently greater/lesser which makes the selection difficult. Clinton II gives “good court” and a deranged war-based foreign policy and war with Russia/China/all the Islamic countries and she’s competent enough to steer the US into continual wars. Trump can’t steer a bicycle so far less chance of international war. Trump has the Klan/Nixon/Reagan vocabulary and a remarkable history of failing at everything he attempts. So Clinton is likely to get done what she wants to do [domestically ok, worldwide she’ll be a disaster for countries that don’t do the US bidding]. Trump can’t organize anything so he will spout a lot and not accomplish anything. Which is better? Fairly competent half evil or totally incompetent possible total evil? Which is safer and for whom? Trump is a louder but incompetent Bush II while Clinton is simply a more politically skilled Birch Evans Bayh III in a skirt. I’ve become somewhat of a “world voter” in the sense that the Empire is destroying the world one country at a time and the Empire needs to fail and go home and Trump is just the guy to put in charge of something if you want that something to fail. But that’s a fucked up view also. Finally, we have been put in this position of having to select between two differently evil/bad/untrustworthy lying politicos. We are the victims being asked to select which victimhood we want. That’s why I’m reading Arendt again because in a fucked-up evil system every decision may be part of putting someone on the train to the camps.
