  1. Your dedication to indifference is truly impressive.
  2. Some people will support anything in the name of a "healthy" economy. Trump is violating the rule of law and flaunting it. Yeah, defenders will say, "Don't be dramatic. Calling people Nazis is the oldest thing on the internet." It is...only if you take an objective view of Trump's policies (and his defiance of checks and balances...and contempt for any oversight...and his advocating white nationalism, the rule of other dictators, and the chopping up of reporters) then it's pretty clear where this is all heading. Rich Nazis before the end of WWII "This economy is really booming!" Everyone else: "We're going to have to kill these a-holes and take our country back." The Nazis lost.
  3. I think that religion (for all it's evils) has a comfort factor, and that includes Christianity. There is a moment of crisis where exChristians feel like if they believe "harder" they can get some happiness out of this religion experiment. The religion is always pointing the finger at the believer and saying "the fault is yours. God is good and you are not." So even when you intellectually say, "There can't be a god. I can't believe in him. I'm an atheist now." it isn't so easy at first. In my case, I tried many years of being spiritual and struggled with depression before I realized a lot of this fear comes from the religion itself. Even the "softer" spiritualism I tried was a response to that original fear of death and hellfire. Some people get through this faster than others, but I can tell you there is a light at the other end of the tunnel. There is a point where you emotionally process what you intellectually know and it gets much easier. You stop looking for god and start concentrating on facts and there here and now. I hope this helps.
