I scarcely believe I'm still here sometimes.

One day before the election my best AK friend and ultra-conservative American (actually an oxymoron, notice "moron" in oxymoron), and a wonderful guy ANYWAY, told me that he is hoping so much for Adolf Trump as president. The message of this (generally so very kind man) was full to bursting point with hatred towards Hillary Clinton.

I am a German, not a very patriotic, but pretty proud German. I suffered from all the manure Adolf Trump poured over Germany, the German chancellor and her policy.

Dear friends - maybe 34635 posts are enough now? Please an advice.

I know what you mean about the emotional effect. I have been depressed and very prone to anger. It is slowly easing.

That's the thing about emotions. They are a flowing river we are in. You can direct your course to a certain extent, but flailing to go the opposite way can just wear you out until you drown. When you hit the rapids, just work on getting through them undamaged. There will be better water in a little while.

The fact that people are often crazy wrong about certain things, like Hillary and Trump, is just the way people are. Why they are this way is just a body of facts to be understood and taken into account. Rationality, more rationality, always rationality.

I feel more than a bit like I've been dispossessed, somehow, with the renunciation of the post WW-II progressive world in which I lived.
Something like a law abiding German jew after AH became chancellor, but less obvious.
