Yes, my view on this is that the USA has been coasting on past glory for some time. What Trump has done is made clear to the rest of the world that they don't *need* America, and as such, he's contributing to American decline on the world stage.

And basically, the GFC happened because capitalism is f*cking us all, so those in power started telling us to blame basically all the people on your list. The rise of Trump is the voice of people capitalism left behind, because they are generally too stupid to see where the issue is.

Australia had a national anti Islam movement in 2014. I got involved in fighting that. Since then, I've had people stalk me and threaten to kill my kids. We keep voting in the people causing our problems. Humanity is stupid. I have no hope for the future.
