Lol. Sam Harris is actually describing why the reaction against Stage Green is a problem --> Leads to Trump

And at the same time he is demonizing Green

There is demonisation of green, but i also think its fair to say that the left could have been more inclusive, as in less superiority and just picked better potential leaders. For a long time its felt like politicians are not real people and are 'acting' to stay in power, i think you get that vibe from Hilary for example, so in many ways it did need a shake up, i wouldve rather Bernie shook things up instead of Trump but what you gonna do. So if there is one good thing about Trumps rise and inevitable fall, is that hes made it so that people expect more from the politicians in terms of being real people.

I vote on policy. Not on the character. That's my answer

That’s unfortunate. So with that logic, if Hitler or Kim Un or Stalin or any narcissistic sociopath that knows what policies serve your ego, you would vote for them?

The character determines their policy and their willingness to carry it out. A higher consciousness person will have higher consciousness policies. Trump says stuff to please your ego. He lies about many things. He only says what you wanna hear, but I guess that’s how you vote. 
 

If you were an employer and had an interviewee who is sociopathic (doesn’t care about others and uses others for their gain), has allegations of sexual assault, knows how to manipulate the law in their favor, would you really hire this person? If you would, that would ridiculous, but if you don’t, then why do you think Trump could be president if he cannot even work at a restaurant?

 

Character is everything. As soon as you throw character out, that’s when crap hits the fan. Character is fundamental and policies are next. If someone is a sociopathic liar like Trump, why would you believe in any of his policies? 
 

So you liked the Muslim ban, the Trump Wall, the end of Paris agreement? Notice that character and policy are one. It is Trumps character that has brought out the crazies, violence, etc. it is his character that is making America look like a fool. 
 

There is no boundary between policy and character. If Trump were a good person, he would side with science and logic and wear a damn mask and tell his Trump supporters to stop their bull crap. Instead, he praises what happened to Biden campaign in Texas and praises people not wearing masks.

The problem with Trump supporters is that they care so much about economy that they forget that health is wealth. Go into a hospital and ask a Covid patient “how well the economy is doing.” Ask the 234k people who died how well they think the economy is.

Think. Think. Think. Don’t just believe in Fox News or Alex Jones Infowars or Qanon and even Trump himself, you have to really think and open your mind to the possibility that you are deluding yourself by following him.

Plot twist: you are The Evil Demon and you are deluding yourself. We all are. Self-deception is at the root of reality, but that doesn’t mean we cannot evolve and be less full of crap.

I think we can agree with Trumpists on this: BBQ is delicious! :D

Perhaps we can lure them over to communism with some free melting-off-the-bone babyback ribs.

Interesting that you agree on that with the Trump supporters, should make you think. ;)

Really????

well obviously these are just buzzwords

but i assume you want the freedom to have an abortion, take psychs, feel free in your sexual orientation, travel wherever you want, choose your partner and end the relationship when you want, choose your religion/system of beliefs or have none at all, vote etc.

Yes, but that’s not what Trumpists and liberals have in common

“Trumpists in a nutshell”. Implying that all Trump supporters act a certain way seems to be a very broad generalization for someone who claims to be so conscious🤭

Trumpists act all in certain way... Republicans not so much...

How many Republicans on the national stage have publicly repudiated and broken ties with Trump? I can think of a few offhand (Mitt Romney, Arnold Schwarzenegger of all people); but it's far from being even a sizeable minority.

John McCain, Lindsey Graham...

Quote

McCain, a longtime friend of Senate colleague and Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham, praised the South Carolina senator for being one of the few in the party to blast the multibillionaire’s remarks. 

In a Sunday interview on CNN, Graham called Trump “a wrecking ball” for the GOP’s future, adding that Republicans “need to reject this demagoguery” or face the consequences.

The classic struggle between rightly acknowledging green’s excesses, which are problematic because of the ego backlash they incite in lower stages, VS validating that lower stage backlash and demonizing stage green.

Very tricky line to straddle, in terms of communication. Or maybe not, I don’t know haha maybe it just depends on the audience’s place on the spiral. It’s clear Sam’s audience is the common orange-green split.

Trump should concede... the gap in Pennsylvania is widening more and more, Biden now leads with 28,833 votes.

 

There's no way that they will find so much votes "illegal" as they say... not even with the "best lawyers" in the world...

 

That's crazy

 

In Nevada Biden is leading with 22,657 votes

In Georgia 7,248 votes

Arizona 20,573 votes
