I don't know what you're all complaining about .

Under Trump we have had ten hours of studio releases from Ae and something like 30 hours of soundboards, as well as the best aphex music since the early 2000s. 

 

Under Obama we only had eight or so studio hours of Ae, syro and a bunch of random EPs and soundcloud dump, possibly the worst ever squarepusher period and a forgettable BOC album.

I think we can all agree that the best administration for this forum was under George Dubya with the confield thru quaristice run,  drukqs to rushup, geogaddi,  and go plastic to hello everything ... Also the last time a dem was in office dubstep turned to shit so be careful what you wish for

People be dumb the world over. Not going to particularly blame 'muricans, because if you think this is somehow the worst then spend a few moments looking into politics outside Europe and North America where most of the humanity lives.

Anyway, the fucked up education system combined with evangelical Christianity and distain for rational thinking isn't really a winning combination when it comes to tackling the ol' stupidity. Maybe US did a service to Europeans by taking in all those religious nutjobs centuries ago..

Nobody is arguing that America is the worst (even though it is), however most of the world is unfortunately made aware of what America is upto at any given moment and right now the story is that most of the people there have looked at Donald Trump, somebody who is exemplary of pretty much all the worst aspects of humanity and said "Yeah, that's my guy". It's upsetting.

Sure, you can't blame them for the existence of dumbness, but you can blame them for their own particular dumbness. Yeah, elsewhere there are also morons. I guess each region has their own kind of idiocy. The American one is pretty dangerous.

Germans have it easy, of course. They blew through their entire allotment of dumbness in one go. Everyone else spreads it out a bit more.

I think I said maybe 4 years ago ITT that Trump is basically an American version of Italy's Berlusconi who kept getting re-elected even when people already knew what kind of an asshole he is. He ticks a lot of the same boxes also: media personality, corrupt, opportunistic, racist, misogynist, womanizer, horrible taste, etc.

If I had to really dig out some real fascist dictator to compare Trump to I would say he's closer to Mussolini than say Hitler. Hitler was a zealous ideological basket case, but Mussolini was an opportunist that easily jumped ship from socialism to fascism when it suited him better.

re: dumb americans

yeah, for sure.

also, though, the era of disinformation, in which we are living, is of significant consequence. and the problem remains, and the solution has not yet arrived. i continue to maintain that the solution cannot be outsourced by the individual - it must be distributed. we will be forced, eventually, to evolve norms of teaching each-other adequate information-handling skills.

This time we knew exactly what we were voting for and we still totally fucked it up 

This seems to be a trend in worldwide politics these days.
People vote, but somehow, wrong people come to power. Like in our country. Suddenly the elected government did not have enough support from the coalition of parties, and the prime minister resigned, giving the seat to a Trump/Orban/Erdogan sympatizer, radical right-wing nut-head, populist agitator, a buthurt neo-liberal. Democracy my ass. Someone needs to flush this scum out of the white halls and put them to work in mines and digging gutters for the rest of their lives.
