This Is Brilliant: Donald Trump’s Art Of Seduction

This one piece summarizes and synthesizes everything I’ve ever written about Donald Trump. It’s a seriously brilliant piece of work.

“If you have ever been truly seduced, you know. You’ll excuse anything your seducer says, the very things you would have always found repellent,” Charlotte said. Experts who study sociopaths and cult leaders also know this.

“When we’re seduced,” Robert Greene tells us, “We grow emotional, lose the ability to think straight, act in foolish ways that we would never do otherwise.” We are more “pliable and easily misled.”

For all practical purposes, a seduced person is a crazy person.

If you’ve never been in the thrall of a seducer or a narcissist, maybe you still can’t relate. Well, travel back a little farther, to high school, or even grade school.

Remember that popular kid? The seductively popular, charismatic one, the one who might have, say, casually mocked a disabled classmate?

Remember when you laughed?

If you’re outside the Cult of Trump, you must read this. If you’re inside, it’s probably too late for you.
