10. Trump waves nukes around like a rich kid showing off his expensive toys.

I also spend too much time thinking about Trump. Recently I have been thinking about the fact that our democratic system and the citizens of this country allowed his candidacy and his election. The first essential truth I see is that our democracy and our society failed. This leaves us with two tasks. First, we must try to limit the damage that Trump can do to the country and the world. Secondly, we need to make changes to our society and institutions to avoid repeating this kind of mistake. If we are unable to restore a functional democracy I fear the majority of Americans will tolerate an authoritarian alternative- it's the "easy out."
