Trumpton and the fall of America.
The satirists had been saying it for years, no-one could be as bad a leader of the Western world than Donald Trump, yet here we are.In a world where the man who cannot run a casino is in carge of the western world.
The issue is one that I find hard to wrap my head around. Over the last few months, in a bid to fight my ongoing depression, I have been working on a novella called Nazi-zombies, that I have posted extacts on this website. (not the complete text) I followed this up with Nazi zombies two the rise of the Dump where a zanzi zombie gets to run America. I did it because I genuinely thought that our own lunatic leader (a man who ran away) was bad enough. Yet it seems to me that America has to outdo the UK in electing utter idiots. You couldn't make this shit up even if you wanted to.
The world now is on an economic precipice. I would say worse than the depression of the 1930's.The way out of that is investment,not privatisation, this was seen clearly in FDR'snew deal, which managed to get people into the mind set of working again. Donald Trump, a man, who, it has to be noted has failed at even making a casino pay, now has at his disposal the American Government's bank at his disposal. Not only that, he has the support of a majority in the house of representatives.
Doesn't anyone find this even a little bit disturbing?
I am sitting here numbed by this. Many papers and news feeds are stating that the left as an ideology is waning, but does that mean the people have to go to the right to solve their private problems and their economic solutions? No surely not, and yet, here we are, living in the sadow of Trumpton, where the mayor will grab any pussy he likes and will shoot windy (Gomez) millar in the back of the head.
I believe the implications for this election result are enormous. The world has hit, in my opinion, a new dark age; and it is our children, and their children whom will reap the fruit of this tragic turn of events.
