    When aesthetics bear on choices, they become part of the choices, for which there is responsibility. "Defining" your aesthetic even if only to yourself is making choices, for which there is responsibility. It's you choosing who you are going to be.

    Conservatism 101. But Trump isn't a conservative.

    A distinction without a difference. Some wanted him to be rude "to the right people" as you put it. Others adopted the rudeness after the fact.

    What we struggle against is the terrible conclusion to be drawn, which is that this isn't just something you people did to have an opportunity to change policy; this is your policy. It's what you want government to mainly do. Address a problem here or there, if there's time.

    It can only last as long as you can turn people into irrational bigots; and it will never have any point other than a perpetual search for emotional satisfaction to fill the void.

    As long as Hillary lives, so will red hatred be stoked to a boil.
    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    "My generation will not allow this to continue!"

    Remember voting age is 18. Read it and weep reds.

    Longer. Forever. This is psychology, not philosophy.

    Senator Graham stumbles towards the truth:


    In an interview, Mr. Graham said that he responded to Mr. Trumpís complaints about Norwegians not migrating to America.

    ďThe conversation was going down the wrong road, I thought,Ē he said. ďHereís how I started, I said, ĎIf youíre from Norway, Mr. President, youíre a Norwegian.í But if youíre from America what are you? Itís not an ethnic group, itís not a religion ó itís an ideal. You canít tell Americans by the way they look. People from all over the world want to be part of this ideal. And that diversity is our strength not our weakness.Ē

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/16/u...T.nav=top-news
    The implication that half-aware people like Senator Graham resolutely refuse to face is that this is a dagger in the heart of tribalism. And so they never reach the question of whether tribalism will die quietly.

    Can you imagine Trump's thoughts as he endured Graham's patient lecture on the elemental principle of American government? Or Graham's face while speaking, while in his mind, he's working furiously to deny the implications of the S hole comment, if not to un-hear it altogether?

    What Norwegian would want to leave Norway and all they've accomplished for a political cesspool?
