A La Revolución,
To place Donald Trump in context, please consider these two quotes:
“One of the most pathetic aspects of human history is that every civilization expresses itself most pretentiously, compounds its partial and universal values most convincingly, and claims immortality for its finite existence, at the very moment when the decay which leads to death has already begun.”
- Reinhold Niebuhr
“I’m gonna make America great again.”
- Donald Trump
Trump is the harbinger of decay. He reminds me of that dried-up old man in the Geico commercial, dangling a dollar at the end of a fishing rod.
He is juiceless and impotent, the last gasp of a waning empire, a dying sensibility, a "leader" as fraudulent as the Wizard of Oz, pulling levers and blowing smoke from behind a gilded curtain.
Fear not the old man.
We will outlast Trump and his dying breed, with our character, our divinity, our respect for our parents, and our love for each other.
