Surviving Trump - Maybe

You Europeans are relatively fortunate--most of your leaders are fairly sane. This article is not particularly reassuring.

We have our fair share of unsuitable leaders of dubious character. Possibly the biggest flaw with democracy is that we ask for volunteers to lead the country with an expectation that they will serve the greater good. In an age where there seems to be no personal consequences to being a known liar, that's always going to lead to disappointment.

Interesting and depressing article, the situation is indeed deeply worrying. When the election was running, much of the ROW did not believe that Trump had a chance. However, with Hilary Clinton as the only opposition, he had a pretty soft run to the top. It is easy to believe why (as the article states) he envies the complete power of Kim JI, Putin and probably other despots (Mugabe, Amin, et al). God help us all were he ever to get it.
