I was going to make a joke reply of “kill them all and let God sort them out,” but nobody can take a joke anymore.

You can't stop power hungry people from seeking power. We could stop electing them, though. Employing psychologists to screen people seeking elected positions? No thanks. Let's better educate people instead.

Gaslighting is something narcissists do without thinking and they are very good at it.

Educating people in today's internet climate, where facts are irrelevant, is a fruitless endeavour.

But yeah, we could stop electing them though we won't.
