As much as I might wish Donald Trump was the problem, he’s not. Getting rid of him will not change the balance of power in Washington. Endless trillion dollar military expenditures will continue, regardless of which Party comes into power or who is president. Given our perennial investment in global aggression, it should not come as a surprise who has finally come to power. Call it the Deep State, call it the Military Industrial Complex or whatever, we are firmly in its grip. Trump is a mere buffoon, a useless, ineffectual idiot. The war machine is not distracted. It does not care about him, or about people in general–local or distant. Projecting power, aggression, war, hegemony, these are its interests, and it controls all the assets necessary to carry on. So, carry on it will. Neither presidential morons, nor racists, nor a handful of Nazis will make any difference. Neither will their philosophical opposites. If at anytime in the future, however, any of these groups come into conflict with our “national security”, they will be eliminated.
