Andrew Sullivan: The White House Mole

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/02/andrew-sullivan-the-white-house-mole.html?mid=facebook_nymag

There's a clarity here that's helpful to everyone.

Andrew Sullivan -- a fine writer and fine human -- has lately presented one perspective on Trump, Trump supporters and -- in the context of the power contests -- the mentality of that world that opponents in media and around here call chaotic and mentally unstable. This article is particularly worth a read because of the compassion that all of us can feel toward those dealing with global dynamics of energy, politics, law and the controlling of masses of humans.

I like Sullivan's look at how religious world views posed in HBO's The Young Pope -- I'm one atheist who totally 'gets' that show -- also inform us about the depth of believers' instinct to stay loyal to this president until the furor (in contrast to seeing just fuhrer) of his constructing of his administration becomes clearer.

1. Thanks for posting

That was good. But it didn't inspire much compassion in me for hateful Trumpies.

3. I hear you. Maybe I should have used another word, say, "understanding."

2. Atheist here.

And I watch "The Young Pope". I thought it would anger and annoy me the way the vocally religious do. But in many ways I too "get" it.
