I'm going to let you decide which particular fool, or idiot, I might want to be emphasizing right now. It may seem obvious, or may not. Doesn't matter; at least as this juncture.
The fool, or idiot, I want to talk about now is the rest of us, as a group; as in the majority of working people. We are the ones following, as referred to in this post's title. And it isn't really any one particular idiot, of current notoriety, that is on the other side of the reference in the title (though there are lots to choose from). Those people are just symptoms of what might better be referred to as foolish, or idiotic, ideas. And, in case you hadn't noticed, I am a strong believer in the notion that we are currently following one very particular example of a very foolish, and idiotic idea indeed; at least given what that idea has mutated into.
And that is the basic problem here. And until enough of us can come together on this basic point, crazy is going to continue to be redefined ever more towards a very bad extreme. That puts the responsibility for getting this basic message out on everybody reading this. You must talk about this with everybody you know, and have them do the same with everybody they know, and so on. Make it a point of discussion on every interaction site you frequent, and encourage the same of everyone else there as well.
Just remember to ask yourself this question: Is just getting rid of one prominent idiot, in whatever position they've gotten to to do far more mischief than any sane person would ever want to contemplate, going to really solve any relevant issues? Let alone the issue of how that fool got to that position in the first place?
In your hearts and minds you know the answer to that question. Now the question is what are you going to do about it.
The clock is ticking because this is time sensitive.
