There is a lot to love in this. It is sad that this is what we have come to. This is not going to be OK. The arc of history will relegate this lurch to the past as a sad footnote but it will be the coup de gras of the already fading American century. Yes, we still have vast wealth but China will pass us very soon in any case. It was a good try, America, but there is no exceptionalism here that doesn’t come from vision, diversity, and hard work. We have been worshiping greed and the lazy who win by exploiting the system and the people who cannot defend themselves. Trump is the reward. . .
