If Jesus was resurrected tomorrow and fed hundreds of impoverished people, like the five loaves of bread and two fish parable, there would probably still be a load of morons on Twitter accusing him of being sexist, racist, 'Islamophobic', not 'inclusive' enough or all of the above.
They are the most innovative generation of totally-wired individuals that the world has ever seen and they have already changed the world. There was no such thing as geek chic when I was at school. And Generation X? Meet you at the cemetery gates, we can settle that score about Oscar Wilde and Keats and Yeats.
Both campaigns have deliberately bypassed rational argument. They play instead to the emotional response of angry people for whom reason no longer makes sense. Since the time of Plato and Aristotle, democracy's critics have warned of the ease with which reason can be subverted and citizens seduced by the false oratory of charismatic leaders.
I still think that Donald Trump might just win the Presidential election. Nationalism is extreme patriotism; a feeling of superiority over other countries. The causes are historic for both the UK and US...many citizens in both the US and UK see their countries as having a 'superior' backstory filled with heroic deeds and victories.
What's amazing about the US election campaigns so far is, in my opinion, the two extremes we're experiencing in terms of speech delivery, revealing a battle of style vs. substance at its absolute limits.
The election of Trump could seal the fate of the US far longer than his presidency, bringing entrenched divide and rule coupled with economic and global insecurity. Thankfully his chances are slim and falling by the day, but clear knowledge of the destructiveness of his character and vision for the US, make this a protest vote far more hate-filled and dangerous.
Unpredictable. But only up to a point. The one thing you can be sure of is that Clinton will continue to hammer Trump on each and every single thing he says and does between now and polling day.
So I just spent the morning on the phone talking about myself. No, I'm not the biggest narcissist in the world (we'll get to him later), in truth I'm promoting my latest album.
A hundred days is a long time in American politics and anything can happen. But the original plot of saving the GOP from itself will require embellishment it is unclear Trump, by himself, can deliver.
The populist appeal that Trump has come to embody is only a mere figment of the right-wing tsunami that has engulfed the West; from Brexit to the rise of Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders, numerous politicians have found methods of harnessing voter disillusionment, channelling feelings of economic insecurity and international fear into fodder for their own ideology.
There has been a lot of negative content written on the Clinton Trump race for the White House-and here's some more. In the USA the political battle r...
Please, look in a mirror, and ask yourself seriously: 'Can I face myself if I vote for Donald Trump?' Surely, you already know the answer. He is a liar, a fraud, and a narcissist with a mean streak the width of the Pacific Ocean. Worse than that, and this is what concerns those of us watching from afar, he is very, very dangerous.
Hillary has made mistakes along the way, as she herself admits. So have I. She has made compromises I wish she never made. But that does not stop me from celebrating #HistoryMade in Philadelphia and believing fervently that Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, must be the next President of the United States.
If this is the post-truth era, we should be scared of it. If the post-truth era is upon us, we are living in a world where paranoia is the new rationality and where ignorance brings fame and attention. It is a world where intellectuals and research are cast aside and the capacity to talk on the cheapest level is praised as courageous and honourable; a world where rational thinking and adherence to evidence is unfashionable.
It's strange though, that when people were asked about their trust in public figures, they had the common sense not to believe Joey Essex on this issue. And yet most of us probably have about as much knowledge as him on many of the big, complex issues we face. We're all Joey Essex, in a way. But we seem to trust ourselves. Maybe we shouldn't?
It is tempting, as we head into August, to gaze across the Channel at the continent of Europe and despair. Some of us will be about to take our holidays in France, Spain, or Italy - others will stay at home and wonder what is to become of us.
