This week’s new Dustinland comic is the culmination of many months of thought, but was inspired by a single Reddit comment.
While I’ve been calling this whole Trump thing a game and a culture war that has nothing to do with policy (except for “guns are good, muslims and Mexicans are bad”), someone posted a comment on a Reddit thread that went something like “A Trump supporter would let Trump shit in his mouth if a liberal had to smell it.” That had a nice ring to it, and it sort of led me in this direction.
I mean, the politics of “winning” and spite and “us vs. them” have really brought us to a horrible place. Quite scary. The end of democracy in America, maybe the world, and maybe the end of human civilization ultimately. Fun times!
