Yes, Ned, this is but one example of what I have termed the universal law of probability balance. This law says that positiveness and creation at some point in time must be offset by negativeness and destruction — stars are born stars die, peace is offset by war and love by hate. As creatures of the universe there is no way we humans can avoid negative offsets.

Trump and his sideshow is just an unavoidable force of the balancing aspect of the natural order of things.
