"der Furor" in the White House
A lurid tale of chaos and cut-throat infighting in the latest Washington palace intrique. But the larger historical picture is that of an accelerating collapse of the once-mighty USA "sole Superpower" which is imploding in dramatic and bizarre fashion. During this unprecedented confusion, even the most despicable, racist, sexist, xenophobic and jingoistic candidate in US presidential history was able to become selected as the latest "Criminal-in-chief" in the White House.
The rise of T-rumpism is a direct result of 3 major interrelated but irreversible historical trends: A)the passing of "Peak Capitalism" in global development; B)the rise of a multi-polar world community; and C)the imperative of Climate Change. The ruling Wall Street-Pentagon elite of the USA empire, the self-proclaimed "sole Superpower," has so far refused to gracefully transition to the above reality. Instead, it has defaulted to the "leadership" of a revanchist "Make America Great Again" Idiot-Sauvage more appropriately termed "der Furor". Such is the sad saga of an Imperial eclipse.
The only possible salvation may be the efforts by the 99% to coalesce and develop a more Equitable, Sustainable, Collaborative and Transparent alternative paradigm that will, in the protracted long run, promise a better future for the 7+ billions of our Planetary inhabitants. Peace, Aloha and Imua!
