Peppa Pig is by far one of my son's most favourite TV programmes. Much to my dismay. I can't bear it when George suddenly bursts into tears, which as many other parents will know, tends to happen in every single bastard episode. It goes right through me.

The Rise of Trumpiness

Someday, perhaps, we will look back on Donald Trump and realize that he did us a service, albeit unintentionally. By providing an extreme example--a caricature--of who we might become, he gave us a real wakeup call. But this won't happen until we create the conditions for real conversation.

How To Make Sure That Trumpism Never Returns

Deepak Chopra | Posted 08.15.2016 | Politics
Read More: By Deepak Chopra, MD the Problem Isn't Donald Trump but Trumpism—Many Commentators Feel Safe Enough to Utter These Words. What Made Them Feel Unsafe Over the Past Year, Despite the Toxic Extremism That Trump the Man Represented, Was Timidity. Someone Posing as a Strong Man, Capable of Viciously Demolishing His Political Enemies, Posed a Potential Threat to Anyone Who Spoke Out Against Him. but Now More People Have Found a Way, Even a Growing Handful of Republican Politicians, To Denounce Him.   There's a Collective Sigh of Relief That Trump Has Become His Own Worst Enemy, But Relief Isn't the Same as Feeling Safe, Much Less Immune. America Hasn't Seen the Last of Trumpism Until Remedies Against Its Return Are Undertaken Seriously. as a Physician Sees It, We Are Past the Prevention Stage, Past the First Signs of Disorder, And Well Into Rampant Symptoms That Threaten a Full-Blown Outbreak. in a Word, Trumpism Has Become a Persistent Virus, And Although It Fuels a Sense of Self-Righteousness to Blame the Long Line of Republican Presidents Going Back to Nixon Who Planted the Seeds of Trumpism, We Can't Afford That Luxury.   to Compress Trumpism Into Its Essential Ingredients, They Are Actually a Batch of Stubborn Illusions That Have Been Turned Into a Belief System, As Follows:   — the Illusion That Anyone "Not Like US" Is Inferior, Bad, Lazy, And Dangerous. From This Illusion Springs a Belief in US-Versus-Them Thinking. — the Illusion of Racial Superiority. From This Illusion Springs Overt and Covert Racism. — the Illusion of Absolute Patriotism, Or "My Country Right or Wrong." From This Illusion Springs Xenophobia. — the Illusion That Violence Works. From This Illusion Springs a Belief That War Accomplishes More Good Things Than Bad. — the Illusion of Egotism. From This Illusion Springs the B, Me, And Mine" Actually Count.   the List Could Go On, And There Are Commentators Who Focus on Such Things as Sexism, Income Inequality, Immigration, And Fear of Globalism. Trumpism Has Many Arms, No Doubt. but I Think It Is Best Viewed as a Psychological State That Permits the Welling Up of Our Darkest Impulses. Until the Country's Collective Psychology Stops Being Tainted by Fear, Anger, And Resentment, Trumpism Will Continue on the Metastasized Negativity That the Far Right Cannot Survive Without.   President Obama Followed the Course of Being the Adult in the Room, Which Hillary Clinton Is Continuing. but if We Consider the 16 Other Republican Candidates for President That Didn't Get Nominated, Each Exhibits Some Form of Trumpism-Lite. in Private, Even a Gentlemanly Mitt Romney, Assuming He Wasn't Being Taped, Expressed an Appalling Disdain for the Average American. the Current Crop of Right-Wing Candidates Fester in a Party Where the Majority of Republicans Believe That Obama Is a Practicing Muslim.   This Implies That Being the Adult in the Room Is Too P, And Activism Begins With Each of US Examining Our Own Attitudes and Beliefs.   — We Must Respond to Toxic Emotions With Rational Solutions. — We Must Be Brave About Standing Up and Speaking Our Truth. — We Must Stop Secretly Agreeing in the Bla, But in Our Own Hearts as Well.   I Know That These Sound Like Moralistic Steps, But as David Brooks Has Been Pointing Out in the New York Times, The Basic Objection to Trump Is a Moral One, And Our Society Has Become Timid, Self-Conscious, Embarrassed, Or Indifferent to Public Morality. as a Result, So-Called "Conservative Values" Have Taken US Through the Looking Glass Into a Landscape Where the Worst Among US Cloak Themselves as the Best and Most Moral.   It Seems Set in Stone That Elected Officials on the Local, State, And Congressional Level Will Refuse to Budge From Toxic Positions That Get Voters to Turn Out.  but This Is Largely Because the Bad Have Driven Out the Good. Moderate and Progressive Candidates Shun the Opportunity to Run for Office Because of Their Dist, As Trump Demonstrates, Uses Scorched-Earth Tactics as a Normal Way of Conducting Politics. but There Is No Other Remedy Other Than Good People Stepping Up Once More.   What's Needed in the End Isn't a Moral Crusade, Which Only Inflames the Opposition to More Intense Levels of Abuse, As Witness Trump's Completely Unpunished Habit of Doubling Down on His Vitriolic Rhetoric. Morality Returns Naturally When People Have Expanded Awareness. We Are Living in an Era Where Outside Threats, Real or Imaginary, Have Caused Our Collective Consciousness to Contract. if This Wasn't So, There Would Be No Secret Trump Admirers Falling for the Illusion That All We Need Is a Strong Male to Fix This Mess. Expanded Consciousness Begins at Home. Each of US Must Find the Core in Ourselves Where Being Truthful, Strong, Tolerant, Compassionate, And at Peace Comes Naturally. This Level Exists in Everyone, And When We Arrive There, The Toxic Illusions of Trumpism Have No More Power Over US.

We Are Making Terrorists, Not Disciples

Followers of Jesus have every reason to be afraid but no reason to stay fearful. We have every reason to feel concerned but no justification for being violent. For in Jesus' own words as He was murdered by the state we have a practical response. "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do."

For some, admitting you're a Christian is tough. I've never had that problem. I used to be a self-absorbed binge drinker with obsessive tendencies, and thanks to the Lord, I'm now a people-loving Jesus freak. However what the secular crowd doesn't always realize about Christians is that we're still human, and we have weaknesses that can still surface under certain arduous circumstances.
