The focus on Terrorism, by Trump and the media, is a mutated scapegoat. It allows a form of doubling by which we can shield our conscious thoughts from the depressing reality of things as they really are.
Do we really have homeless, jobless, poorly educated people in 'the most powerful nation in the world'? Do we really have a level of income inequality that is beyond simple calculation? Is our infrastructure really crumbling? Do we really have tax laws that provide largess to the richest? Do we really have such a long list of societal ills that we grow numb to their existence?
Concentrate. Concentrate on the threat of ISIS, Mexicans, and Syrian refugees, but whatever you do, don't you dare confront the causes of your own powerless, hopeless feelings. It's so much easier to ignore reality than to admit that you have to personally do something in order to change things.
