According to George Monbiot, human values can be divided into two main categories: extrinsic and intrinsic. He argues that understanding these values is crucial in defeating Trump and psychologists may hold the key. However, there could be additional factors involved.

In 1980, a physicist named David Bohm discussed the concepts of explicate and implicate orders in our understanding of reality. According to David Peat, a colleague and biographer of Bohm, traditional science focused on the explicate order of space, time, separation, distance, mechanical force, and cause and effect. However, Bohm proposed a deeper order that aligns more with quantum theory and is more closely connected to our innate thoughts. This he called the implicate or enfolded order.

In the past, there have been efforts to understand this elusive concept that exists beyond ourselves, using terms like immanent and transcendent which originated from Latin and were adopted into Late Middle English. To further illustrate this idea, in 2009, Iain McGilchrist wrote a book titled The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. While it may be challenging to read, it is a better alternative to thinking about the current state of affairs with President Trump.

The prevalence of game shows is a contributing factor to the idolization of money, influence, and achievement. Program creators constantly come up with new ways to compete individuals against each other for recognition and monetary gain.

A contest that honors trickery, such as The Traitors, appears especially unfair. Yet, they all promote the idea that winning is the ultimate goal, with added fanfare. I dislike all of them for their exploitative nature and worry for the future of our planet, which relies on collaboration to thrive.

In his 1796 farewell speech, George Washington criticized the two-party system, stating that it has caused great harm and is essentially a tyrannical form of government. Donald Trump’s presidency is a result of this divisive and despotic system, where decisions and elections are based on binary choices.
