Softly Softly Catchee Trumpy

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:06 pm by aleksan

There is another letter going around now, “Dear Mr Trump…..”. It starts off abusing and attacking him in an aggressive and intolerant way. If I got a letter like this from anyone it would go straight in the bin and I would consider contacting the police about malicious harrassement! Whatever Trump is doing that you consider wrong, do you really think that this will helpt to engage him? No, it will not – it will just confirm his views more deeply and lead to more division and polarisation, more violence and intolerance. I am personally horrified about many of his knee jerk and dicriminatory policies and I have posted against them regularly. But to write a silly letter like the “Dear Mr Trump” one (is he really Dear to you?) that is going the rounds is childish and intellectually immature and will prove counter productive, and give more power to his elbow. Instead we should be more cunning and adopt the wise old Chinese saying “Softly, softly catchee monkey”
