At Least Mussolini Made the Trains Run on Time

A stable genius time check
The reality of the 1930s was that fascist leaders actually had to do something that benefited the people in order to get elected.

Now, Americans see reality as “virtual” or with “show” appended. A leader is anyone famous; say a loud, flashy boar firing hapless underlings. “Reality” is ideally entertainment that projects our rage and contempt onto someone else.

Which is why Trump, an infamous serial swindler who gamed a corrupt system and benefited only himself, was enough. If the system is a sewer, Americans figure you obviously vote for the biggest turd.
