Repeat, Trump is a symptom an our history is the cause of our present illness

Trump didn’t just suddenly arrive.  The journey that brought him to the White House is our history and, as Ms. Summers so aptly states, we are not going to get better unless we confront what has been bad about us.  The piece was published today in the Reno Gazette-Journal

Trump serves as a figurehead of our country’s subconscious. His image shows us how rotted we remain despite what we tell ourselves to cope. His image has shown us issues where we haven’t made a whole lot of actual healing or progress. He is a man with unlimited privilege doing everything our country has always done, but now only more obvious.

You see, disease cannot be cured if the disease remains unknown. Our traumas cannot be confronted, integrated or transformed if they are repressed. Our world and country cannot change if we live in the comfort of oblivion and apathy. Trump has been a wake call. He has shown us evil still exists as very real entities everywhere. He has called them out of the shadows into the light.
