As technology advances it allegedly strives to meet human needs, so I have to assume that humans have the need to follow and the need to be followed by others. Before the advent of electronic media it was enough to have a patterned fabric waving on a stick in order to galvanize large regions of humans. The Trump transformation, that we are all experiencing at this time, has become the era of chaotic inter-connectivity. Somewhere loosely within our new national identity is the remnant of a color scheme and pattern that formerly helped us find our center as a group. The transformation that has descended upon us now has given technology the ability to create alternative realities and alignments to be selectively transmitted through an individual in a leadership position.
