As I watch Donald Trump sow confusion and chaos in a nation that heretofore has been known to the world as a standard in all that is good in human nature, and as I watch his own political party stand aside in silence in the face of his selfish and destructive behavior, I am reminded of two quotations that say a lot about Trump’s enablers.


“. . . in obedience to figures they see as ‘authoritative,’ people will do to ‘others’ what they would otherwise do to nobody.”

Seven Theories of Human Nature, p.140, Leslie Stevenson

And this quotation I’ve already used recently, but in this instance is worth repeating.


“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

Albert Einstein
