    I have said this for quite a while, Donald Trump is the "Great Enema" that the U.S. has needed for a very long time to help greater society blow out backed up faeces from their a**es. Long simmering issues just under the surface are now front and centre as the far- left wails and marches airing grievances (some imagined) while the noble far-right does the same but with far more decorum, intelligence, and humility. All in all these two forces though seemingly opposed work together as a battery as positive and negative charges that form together to power the machinations of forward movement. The stagnation in U.S. society that we have seen for years has been broken by this venerable benefactor of society Donald J. Trump. The stagnant, stinking pond has been disturbed by this small pebble of change and the Great Pendulum will soon be balanced again somewhere in the middle but this too will take time. Those who are quick to judge and slow to understand will no doubt wallow in the same hog pens covered with mud and excrements squealing at each other and nipping each others heels convinced they are wearing silk hats, but in the end the short sighted will once again have to come to terms when the larger picture comes to full fruition.

    Interesting opinion piece:
    "Some Democratic voters are looking for a candidate who can restore the optimism of the Obama era. But what if the progressive champion they're looking for is already sitting in the White House?"

    *"I know, I know. For some people, this is blasphemy. Yet one of the biggest ironies of Trump's presidency is that he has become a more effective catalyst for progressive social change than Obama."
    *(interesting and very telling he used the word blasphemy)

    "Maybe real change only comes through chaos and crisis"

    "He's sparked a more enduring form of hope"

    "Staring into the abyss"

    "We won't wait anymore for some messianic figure from the left or right to fix it for us. Instead we will decide that "We're the ones we've been waiting for.""

    I have my bedrock in Satanism but I have long abandoned that moniker since many have preconceived ideas of what Satanism is and there seems to be a lot of explaining and reverse engineering of sorts which wastes a lot of time and misunderstandings, besides we evolve over time and Satanism though sometimes a useful tool seems several thousand miles away in the rearview mirror of my mind. The bizarre is not as bizarre as you might think, suspension of disbelief is necessary in any werking but it seems to require a Zen like state of no mind for it to truly take hold. I have no delusions that our Andras Werking years ago was instrumental in this change, we just thought it up and did it. Over the years I have seen that some of the best ideas we ever came up with came about while sitting around talking about this and that and someone might offhandedly say "maybe we ought to do something about this" and it goes from there.

    I see it a little differently. To me, Donald Trump is the result of an enema.

    But to the meat of the OP, I was going to post the very same article. The complacency on the left is utterly gone as we've seen the basest instincts of humanity on full display in the Rose Garden as well as on the streets from neo-Nazis and alt-right terrorists.

    And we've seen the Republican party falling all over itself to praise Trump's turds as the most beautiful turds that they've ever seen and to gush about how lucky we all are to have such a great turd maker in the White House.

    So indeed I agree with the thesis of the article that the "wind has been sown". Hopefully sufficiently sown so 2020 will see the resulting left whirlwind and the restoration of our most positive instincts.

    Wrong word to be sure. But being in an angry mood is a problem on this forum? Color me shocked.

    Ya like everyone proudly married, and moving multiple times, and brother-in-laws and churches and business, when they're not looking at the degree, we send them to Donald Trump like the OP Satanist.

    You mean that you believe that President Trump really is the 'Chosen One'?

    Political Myopia.

    Could this be why you offer so much support for your President?

    I recommend using a broader selection...including 21st century usages.
    This'll help avoid conveying an entirely different meaning.
