Movements

hammer_in_handTwo things that Trump fans say: (1) They are angry and (2) they are part of a movement to smash Washington’s corruption (led by a man who has been part of the corruption his entire adult life). Fair enough; I’m angry, too. And Washington needs reforming (which is why I support Ted Cruz).

But be careful what movement you join out of anger. Not every political group is benign, even when reacting to real injustices. Movements don’t always end well–especially when led by unprincipled men who claim by the very force of their personalities to be the solution to all our problems.
