oftwominds |With Trump ascendant, the serfs are selecting the noble in the castle on the hill.Outrageous! Unheard of!
know the Establishment is freaking out when Establishment pundit
mouthpieces like David Brooks and Francis Fukuyama are freaking out
about Trump. David Brooks could not restrain his disdain for Trump
on a recent Charlie Rose segment, in which he intoned (and I paraphrase)
that Trump can't put eight words together without referring to himself,
i.e. he is not just a narcissist, but he is (take this, Trump!) a fragile narcissist-- unlike people like Brooks, of course, who are solid, secure, wise, well-educated, erudite water-carriers for the status quo.
Policy heavy-hitter Fukuyama confesses the political system in the U.S. is broken but
he can't understand why the citizenry has selected the "singularly
inappropriate instrument" (his description of Trump in the pages of Foreign Affairs) of Donald Trump to express their disdain for their neofeudal lords.
Mr, Fukuyama, let me explain it to you: the debt-serfs have selected
Trump precisely because the neofeudal financial-political nobility you
represent consider him a "singularly inappropriate instrument".
But, the pundits rage, he's a narcissist. He's fragile. (Now isn't that a
classic middle-brow slam from the hopelessly middle-brow ("I only sound
middle-brow due to my starring role in the mainstream media; actually
I'm brilliant beyond words") Brooks.
Policy guru Fukuyama has a much better turn of phrase, of course:
"narcissist" is way too common and middle-brow a critique at his level.
Thus we get "singularly inappropriate instrument" (ooh, now there's a
sharpened blade that slips easily between the ribs).
Dear Establishment pundits, flacks, hacks, sycophants, apparatchiks, toadies, lackeys, functionaries, leeches and apologists: the
more you label Trump as "singularly inappropriate," the more attractive
he becomes to the 81% who've been left behind by the
financialized-globalized-neofeudal order that has so greatly enhanced
your own wealth, influence and power.
