[Scott Adams is a world class fucking idiot] As proof, please see your same link.
And this is why Slashdot seems to be pro-Trump.
Scott Adams is a trained hypnotist, and has had many insights into this election from that point of view. When he says people are brainwashed, he's speaking professionally with some background. And the posted article uses analogy and example to explain his point.
If you think he's wrong, just pasting a random insult ain't 'gonna do it.
Anyone can show pro-Clinton articles and posts on Slashdot, it only takes insight and background, which anyone could do.
Raw, unsupported insults simply aren't good enough.
In the linked post, Adams never argues why the illusion is an illusion. He simply asserts it is (in an exceptionally patronizing way, incidentally). The furthest he goes in explaining that Trump is not a racist/sexist clown with a dangerous temperament is simply to say that "a guy who uses provocative language (as New Yorkers do) while succeeding across several different fields. And he knows risk-management." So basically, we should not take Trump at his word on anything because he's from New York and just uses colourful language? Also, he knows risk management, presumably from his business career. Adams believes Trump has the capacity to bring real change to American politics. I doubt he came to that conclusion on the basis of Trump's business career alone, so he must be hearing something in Trump's words he actually believes to be true, despite all the "New York talk". So I get this straight, Adams alone because of his special magic hypnotist training can separate the wheat from the chaff, and thinks we are all deluded for not seeing the objectionable things Trump says as meaningless bluster. Yeah, I think we can safely ignore him from this point on.
