I am getting notes and articles forwarded from numerous people, smart
people, that are full of paranoid speculation about coups, false flag
operations, and military mobilizations.
This is exactly what the Trumpkins want. They want you to be paranoid,
to be consumed by fear and irrationality. The last thing they want you
to be is thoughtful, careful, rational. They want you to overreact and
succumb to lurid fantasies.
Their exercise of power thus far is muscular but also chaotic, banal,
and largely symbolic.
Take the Muslim ban. It is possible the botched order was a trial
balloon by Bannon to see how various forces would react — the media,
protesters, the judiciary, civil society. But it spurred an incredible
resistance. Yes, many people will suffer but they really shot themselves
in the foot with this one.
