This is because living in a “free” country is different from “being free”.
A “free country” is one not under authoritarian control. Being “free” requires a level of intellectual, emotional, and spiritual maturity to not be seduced by fear, hate and rage.Being “free” is hard. And those who struggle with it are easy prey to demagogues. In short, they call themselves “free” but seek the warm blanket of the very authoritarian control they claim to reject. And the result us Trump and Trumpism.
#ownyourabusurdity is designed to help you identify the absurdity of the support for Trump and what he represents. Please enjoy.
