At the end of the day, with actions like Brexit and populist demagogues like Trump, Duterte and possibly Geert Wilders (aka "Dutch Trump") gaining power around the world, I can't help but throw my arms up and gripe, "Is this the best we, the people of Earth, can muster up?"
Shouldn't Trump be the American Wilders? Sadly, our local shitty hairdo has a much longer history in politics...
That said, the way our government works prevents Wilders from gaining the sort of power Trump now has. We have many political parties, meaning the winner still has to form a coalition with other parties to become the majority within the House of Representatives. For instance, right now the coalition consists of the economically liberal VVD and the social democratic PvdA and they have to sort of get along to get stuff done. It's slow, but atleast it keeps the crazy in check.
