The Chance of Getting a Trump

Chance is a scary thing. So much is at stake in the US election and chance will decide. That is scary.

Who is this Trump? He is a combination of personal opinions which don’t fit into the normal trends in American politics. If he was to be elected, the fate of the world may more than ever depend on the random whims of a single individual.

Other candidates are to a great extent carried along by movements in society. We may say that somehow time was ripe for Obama or for Bush, and if they had not been there, someone similar to them would have appeared.

But no one is similar to Trump. He came from nowhere and appeared by chance. By chance did he enter the race, by chance did he win the nomination and by chance he may be elected president.

A system that leaves so much to chance must have considerable weaknesses.

For the sake of the world, let’s hope predictability will be elected.
