Donald Trump is such a destructive force in so many ways!
One of the worst aspects of the Trump success so far is its effect on civility and manners in American society, including its schoolyards.
Young people are seeing a candidate who uses foul language, and who says whatever comes to his mind without any filter, utilizing insults, and employing racism, nativism, xenophobia, and misogyny.
Trump makes bullying and narcissism and egotism seem normal and acceptable.
Rudeness and lack of consideration of the effect of language on others has become a norm.
The effect on young males of school age and even in colleges is to show less respect for others who are different than them in their race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation.
Why should young men and boys have respect for girls and women when Donald Trump does not?
Why should bullies in school yards stop their harassing of others when Donald Trump is the champion bully?
The Trump effect will be to create new social problems for parents, teachers, law enforcement officials, and society in general, as boys and young men with heightened testosterone will have license to say and do whatever they wish, as, after all, Donald Trump has been accepted as the Republican Presidential nominee by hateful, ignorant, poorly educated people who represent the worst elements of American society.
God forbid that Donald Trump becomes President, as the cancer he represents will permeate American society and undermine American internal domestic security, as well as national security in dealing with the outside world.
We will have to worry that we will alienate our friends in the world; encourage military confrontations and war with our enemies; and face the likelihood of growing tensions and possible warfare at the US Mexico border of 1,989 miles!
Most certainly, we do not need problems with our neighbors, as we already have enough challenges with other nations around the world!
