12-20 Donald Trump is 'just a blunt tweet that started determining lives for billions', says Ukrainian philosopher Volodymyr Yermolenko.
"It's a sad but a predictable thing. The world in recent decades is a world of returning animal instincts. The mind is nothing, and the instincts, primitive emotions, impulses, memes, grievances, f*ck, gags, etc are everything. When people are aspiring to return the animal within, there is no need to be surprised that the world is ruled by an animal. When people have so much desire to be that predator again, why are we surprised that they want a predator to be their king ? It's the Zootopia, but in reality it's not cartoonish but factual. Trump has just learned this lesson. But many people on this planet have been living under Trump's rules for so long. Even if their predation is contained by their little Facebook page. Trump is nothing but a Facebook account suddenly turning real. It's a tweet that suddenly started determining the fates of billions of people", he writes on his Facebook page.
