Donald Trump Lacks Humanity, Science, and Governance.
All of them are required for a democracy to function smoothly.
Anne Applebaum recites Laura Ingraham from ‘Descent into Despair’ and observes that “the America of the present is a dark, nightmarish place where God speaks to only a tiny number of people; where idealism is dead; where civil war and violence are approaching; where democratically elected politicians are no better than foreign dictators and mass murderers.” 
It will sound apt to anyone who feels deprived and unprotected despite being a citizen or resident of the so-called ‘most democratic’ country in the world. Democracy is not a favor done to its citizens, contrastingly, civilly- engaged citizens are democracy’s biggest assets, the other being progressive politicians. This write-up is about the latter.
The world is moving closer to science; however, politics, on the other hand, is moving away from it. As the gap between the two, polity and science, is gradually becoming wider, assaults against democracies are rising.
As laid down by Michael J. Thompson and Smulewicz, “All those whose goal is not to analyze honestly the evidence for and against a particular policy, but is, rather, simply to manipulate the public into reaching a predetermined conclusion by whatever technique will work, however dishonest or fraudulent. So, the issue here is no longer mere muddled thinking or sloppy reasoning: it is fraud.”  The explanation is regarding the relationship between science and democracy.
As Americans suffer in the world of ‘an inadequately-known disease,’ their president, Donald Trump, an increasingly insane and uncompassionate being, remains unbothered both by the death toll and the fact that he has put so many lives around him in danger. He upholds the same unscientific convictions about the virus as he did before he acquired it. What could possibly be the psyche or thought behind that? For the sake of retaining or winning a political stance, Donald Trump is putting so much at stake, including America’s future, as the cost and consequence of this “short-termism,” as Dambisa Moyo calls it in Edge of Chaos, will be borne tomorrow.
