Captain Nemo - (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen)
Trump won! Who'd a thunk it? I sure didn't. But then, I've been wrong about every presidential election since like 1964.
People are emotional animals. During one of those rare times when we think about thinking, we think we are rational, that we are in control of our actions, but then we get tired or hungry or thirsty, or someone startles us, or we see an attractive member of the other sex and we revert to our real, emotion / hormone driven selves.
Our society has evolved over thousands of years and while it isn't perfect, it worked well enough to get us where we are. The last century has seen tremendous advances in engineering and technology and those advances are having a big impact on our society. Now, anything seems possible and some people think we should embrace whatever new and wondrous thing that comes down the pike. Others are more skeptical. Yes, the old ways don't work for everyone, but they got us here, and we don't really know where these new ways are going to take us. They might lead to a Brave New World, and that Brave New World [tm] could be heaven or it could be hell. Be careful what you wish for, you might get it.
I don't think that this change in President is going to have any real impact on this country. The juggernaut that is the established power structure is going to continue on the same course it has been on since the end of WW2. Oh, there might be some small deviation, but it's not going to be enough to have much impact on most people. The biggest impact is going to be on people's arguments, and there's not going to be much change in that either. People who are concerned about this kind of thing are going to continue believing whatever they believe and spouting those beliefs to anyone who will listen. Everyone else will go back to working and trying to make a living.
The government isn't going to fix anything, they are too hamstrung by their bureaucracy and the establishment. If you have a problem, you are going to have to fix it yourself. Best bet is to find some like minded people with similar problems. People working together can accomplish much more than a single individual working alone, provided of course that the people you have thrown in with can actually do anything, and that you haven't thrown in with a group whose main activity is belly-aching and complaining about the government.
