I blame the elite and mainstream media along with religion. Had they not been a bunch of idiots, Trump would never been elected.

The elite and mainstream media were the only pro-Clinton people. :eyebrow: As for religion, most people I know who voted for Trump and were religious didn't care for him per say, but they liked Pence. Though those were Christians, Trump has a pretty big pagan fanbase. Ugh I'm not a fan of licenses for anything (procreation, internet usage, ect) but times like this are when I would actually endorse the internet being a privilege that could be revoked. Damn the backlash
I have no time for flat characters why should I have times for flat people?

I have yet to meet a pagan that wasn't a bleeding heart leftie. Trump has a large pagan fanbase? Wow. You sure breed 'em funny in 'Murica.

True and as for pagans being hardcore lefties those are the majority but Norse pagans are usually hardcore nazis at least in Scandinavia. Which have had issues when it comes to burning churches and such.

Just imagine how wonderful the world would be without religion. Simple human decency and an advancement of the sciences...

Fun times in Ukraine!.... good thing too, they haven't had much to laugh at the last 5 years, since the oligarch and his neo-nazi henchmen took over government.

I used to read the news, local, national and international, several times a day. I used to worry about the world and humanity and stressed over what I'd read.

Now, I just check the BBC periodically, skimming the headlines as the Beeb is my homepage on my mobile, but I don't actively read the news anymore and hey, guess what? While I still worry about the world, it's not as much and my stress has diminished accordingly.

Ehh... sorry to say, but I think religion is really more of a symptom than a cause. Humans suck. They are greedy, avaricious, capricious and generally amoral in their selfishness. No rules without exceptions of course, but Darwinism also seems to work on a social level (i.e. "Social Darwinism"), where various ways of grouping together will compete with the jerk next door and his loser team :wink:
