Democritus (460 BC - 370 BC)
To some degree this applies to the American people as a whole. I’m actually getting tired of the bashing they take from themselves. If they were so stupid and manipulable, then how could they have put Democrats in charge of both houses of Congress despite the massive election-stealing operation that is beginning to be revealed? People point to Ukrainians taking to the streets as an example of how the American people should be, neatly forgetting that this comes after decades and decades of sometimes extreme misrule in Ukraine, which Americans never even had to tolerate; so the Ukrainians had far more cause and had to be very patient.
Not only do I somewhat trust the American people as a people of quality, but also the American people remain prudent enough to put some trust in the Democrats rather than storm the streets. There are many fine people, even if flawed (and maybe traumatized), among the Democrats.
