The Scariest Part Is If You Take Him at His Word
Donald Trump, eager to pump up his defence cred, recently described himself as the "most militaristic" person in the world.
Sure that's the now standard bombast from a pathologically narcissistic degenerate but what if that was true or if it was something Trump aspired to be, the most militaristic person in the world.
History is full of people who were the "most militaristic" of their time. They range from Alexander the Great to Adolph Hitler. Some of those, like Alexander, soared to greatness. Yet there were plenty of hyper-militarists who left nothing but ashes in their wake. When it comes to character and intellect, it'd be hard to put Trump in the Alexander category. Probably a lot more like the other option.
So now we have a new game. When Trump describes himself as the greatest, or the most, or the biggest anything what he's saying is that he's the most extreme of whatever it is he's boasting about. Then think of all the other extremists in that category and see if you're not scared shitless.
