Steve Bannon is a person who wants to be seen as highly intelligent. Steve Bannon wants you to believe that he sees things that you do not. And he may be highly intelligent; he may see things that you do not see. And yet, he may not be as smart as he thinks. And he may see things that you don’t see, but that’s probably because he’s seeing his own childish, half-bright fantasies.
Steve Bannon sees the world burning.
And the world may well burn. But I don’t think it has to. Steve Bannon is actively, and admittedly, trying to set it ablaze. That’s his fantasy. That’s the bottom line of his self-advertised high intelligence. Burn it all down.
