"If you are really honest with yourself, you know in your heart where this is heading already. You don’t need me to come right out and say it." I read this as some sort of Nazi Germany equivalent coming up. I think it's wrong. I believe it comes from the same place of "knowing" what will happen that also "knew" Hillary would win.
Let me offer something else instead: Trump represents more of a aggressive masculine energy than other leaders in recent time in the US. This kind of aggressive masculine is responsible for a lot of evil in human history, but also even more good. Obama didn't have it and failed in many of his endeavors. It is an essential part of human society but it has been shunned for quite some time. Now it's back, it feels uncomfortable, and it misguides us to predictions of Hillary victory and, I believe, of Trump doom.
This is an essential energy that needs to be cultivated and used for good, by both men and women. Putin has that energy and he has saved Russia from chaos and destruction. Putin is a dictator but the US political system prevents dictatorships. So I think it's just as likely that Trump will lead the country to its more traditional roots and overall more peacefulness, inside and outside, than we've had in the last couple of decades.
