The goal of January 6th

Okay. I am better now. I have no anger or hate, only indifference for the nazis. Here is my take.

The attack on the Capitol was supposed to be coordinated with attacks on the Capitols of Democratic and swing states. Most of these secondary attacks didn't materialize. MAGAts are overwhelmingly old, fat, stupid or cowardly. So it failed, as everything Trump tries fails. It is difficult to see the end goal when the overall plot didn't thicken. There weren't enough true believers to execute the mission. Given Trump's megalomania and penchant for exaggeration this is not surprising.

Indifference is worse than rage for the enemy. Narcissists get nothing from indifference.

1. I was wondering about the objective

Like the dog that catches the car ... What were they going to do once they took control of the Capitol building? It's not like they know how to run anything.

My hunch is that they really just want to be on TV, on the internet, to be famous. The desire to be "somebody", to be famous seems to be a rampant sickness in the world, especially among nobodies who haven't achieved anything.
