Hapsari, your words are particularly true in this time of virus mitigation and social unrest. Too many are following the crowd, rather than choosing health and social responsibility. Too many have been silent for too long, rather than speaking against racism and social injustice. Too many are followers, rather than leaders and those who follow don’t ask the right questions, or any questions, before joining forces with hatred, bigotry, and misogyny.

That’s how Trump became president. People latched on to one small talking point and ignored the rest, believing he would learn on the job how to be presidential and represent others besides himself. The evidence was there that he was in it to glorify only himself but most did do their homework and followed him like lemmings into the sea.

Every word you said is truth.
