The real problem, in my humble opinion, is not Trump, or Putin, or Wilders, or Brexit. The real problem is what made lots of people believe that there was no better choice. And if we feel that the best answer to this question is blaming someone, then we might as well begin with ourselves, Dunning Kruger effect or not. It's us who make ivory towers whenever we have a chance, and then spend time devising elaborate mechanisms to keep these towers safe. Eventually people see through that, and that's, sadly, the point at which the unicorns fly away and the angry flock of bad-smelling rhinos breaks in. I only hope that eventually we learn how to break this ill samsara, and there will be no need to build ivory towers ever since.
