Though hardly a consistent parallel with the impudence of Trump, the story of the murder of the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1170 does induce conversation regarding the cankerous effect upon sovereignty by economic rent's privatization.
You're invited to a screening and discussion of "Becket," a film version of the historical events which pitted a nihilist king (fancying himself the Lord of Creation . . . "People say Creation has never been better than since I took control") against restraints on land-centered narcissist egomania. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Beckett, attempted that restraint but was offed by the cunning aside of Henry II, who sighed in ear-shot of his minion knights, "Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?" much as Trump casually proposed a coup by his invitation to the Georgia Secretary of State to find him some ballots.
