- Ignorance and the denigration of expertise birthed Wikipedia.
- Wikipedia birthed the legitimization of falsehood.
- Falsehood birthed Donald Trump.
- Donald Trump birthed the exaltation of ignorance.
Absent the denigration of expertise and falsehood Donald Trump never could have risen to power. Trump’s power is rooted in falsehood and ignorance and that is not a healthy combination for any country. When societies follow the lead of a clearly marked deceiver societies suffer serious consequences.
But deception is only possible where ignorance and the denigration of expertise are present. Hence, Trump is the perfect reflection of the Wikipedian mindset and the Wikipedian state of mind is the perfect soil for the planting of Trumpian deception.
