Not to be confused with the “Cult of Scarro” from the Doctor Who series…..or the “Cult of Obama” that so many on the Right accused us mere mortals of suffering from….this is about our new president and it is starting to look like a cult in the making…..NO? Just listen to the people that rabidly support him….they were lied to and yet they continue to pretend that it is about the will of the people….
His followers view him as a sort of prophet of American triumphalism.
As of this writing, Donald Trump is making his cabinet picks, which aside from conspiracy-monger Steve Bannon, look like the usual rightward Wall Street and D.C. insiders. The Trump regime seems so far like it will promote an uglier and more aggressive version of the standard Republican policies: deregulation, privatization and tax cuts for the wealthy. We can expect to see over the coming years the continued decline of the middle class, a shrinking social safety net, an acceleration of environmental catastrophe, unchecked corporate malfeasance, expanding federal deficits, and a deepening of the surveillance state. There will most likely be diversionary tactics in the form of more warfare abroad and the concomitant curtailing of civil liberties at home. Trump will likely fulfill many of his campaign promises, albeit in scaled-down versions. But don’t expect his followers to abandon him even if he reneges on many key commitments from his electric, nationalistic rallies.

Of course this will be some sort of “Left wing” conspiracy…….a conspiracy to keep him from assuming his rightful place in the hierarchy of American emperors….personally, I do not give a crap about party politics…..my concern is what any of this will do to the fabric of American society and I see a rip forming that could take decades to heal.
I will wait for the test of governing…..but for now the appearance is not looking solid.
