Veteran’s Day, 11 November 2016: Election Nutshell Post-Mortem

We Grieve Now because of something that has stilled hearts of the civilized world since World War II started out of Germany and ran its course:

We feel the powerlessness of knowing that, had we been there as German citizens, we could not have stopped the rise of Adolph Hitler.

Many Rational-sounding Arguments to support voting for this election’s winner are given voice. None dismiss the fact of our knowing virtually nothing to the good of the character, and quite a bit to the bad, and the fact that only words, empty promises by a person devoid of any experience in fulfilling promises, were offered us.

Too many of the words were filled with rage. Too much of that rage was amplified by that candidate’s supporters at rallies. Groups classes of American citizens were insulted, vilified. In this election, it was Muslims, where, resulting from the 1932 German election, it turned out to be the Jews.

“It can’t happen here,” has been a refrain that the world has lived with, throughout the years since the end of World War II.

“It can’t happen here.”

After Tuesday’s Voting, when America received its most-obvious such major-party ideologue, spewing insults and hatred, which insults and hatred found resonance among too many of the ideologue’s adherents, flocking to each successive rally—

After Tuesday’s voting, when the candidate unequivocally offered nothing but insults and empty promises—

We feel the powerlessness of knowing that, had we been there as German citizens, we could not have stopped the rise of Adolph Hitler.

With the sadness of dire regrets,
