"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

Through a glass, darkly

This is actually a greater concern than anything Donald Trump said Thursday night or Friday morning.

Of course, what he said will probably damage him more in the election; but it is what he hasn't said that is so concerning.  For one thing, Trump hasn't pledged to put his businesses and investments into a blind trust.  And if he already knows his financial status depends on the goodwill of people very close to Vladimir Putin, what difference would a blind trust make to his diplomatic decisions anyway?
