If Hillary is the cure, then...

Donald Trump, fortunately, believes in little or nothing. In the current crisis, this is not a bad thing.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience...
To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals."---CS Lewis, "God in the Dock" (1948)

This is Hillary and her ilk.  

“Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will.”
“And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed,” Clinton added.

If a Hillary presidency means America is to be "cured" of our codes and beliefs, the robber baron is not looking so bad atall atall.
