“To the children yet unborn with the hope that we leave them a better world in which to grow.”

Yael Danieli – from her book, International Handbook of Multigenerational Trauma, 1998

It takes generations to undo the imprinting of an autocratic-despotic ideology. This is because the ideology becomes more than an opinion but rather an embedded belief that imprints the mind, heart and spirit of generations of adults, and lamentably, the children. 

No citizen wants to wake up realizing they were lied to and used.  No citizen wants to believe that their leaders were corrupt. No citizen wants to admit that the ideology they believed in – mind and heart – was fraudulent to the core. 

This is the legacy and ashes that Republican Trumpism will leave behind.
For many followers of Republican Trumpism, it will become impossible to come to terms that they were used and abused as commodities by one man and a party. 

This is why we continue to hear the desperate screams from Republican Trumpism leaders, allies and supporters that deny the undeniable and defend the indefensible.  

Nevertheless, this is the deafening reality that awaits the allies, enablers and supporters of Republican Trumpism . . . and their children.
