Not the only interesting piece on Trump viewed from ancient Greece.
"this election was something like a census of American Idiots... " defined using the classical Greek meaning of “people who are consumed only with self-interest".
Any society with too many such idiots would be "consumed solely with self-interest... [and] cease to be a democracy" as they "can’t look out for any kind of common wealth or shared interest... can’t build a society with any kind of public goods ... [unable] to provide those things ... Society would degenerate into ... each person trying to exploit the next... soon enough, a demagogue would come along, who would prey on all those fears"
A new hashtag! "What are the American Idiots really fighting for?... Free-dumb...: the right to do whatever you damn well please... fanatical ideology of toxic individualism"
