I agreed with the entirety of the article except that part I quoted.
That rationale is absurd.
I counter his contention, his rationale, very common from that alt-left perspective that Trump is somehow a benefit to disrupting the march of Empire.
Trump represents the kind of autocrat, the kind of monster such Empire needs to up the ante of violence abroad, AND repression at home.
Thanks for your thoughts.
I didn’t assert that he thought the Trump Administration was “good” in the general sense. I was addressing his “perhaps preferable” notion based on his opinion that a Trump Administration would somehow hasten the downfall of Empire. So perhaps I should have parsed “good” with “perhaps”.
Again, I think that rationale that Trump represents anything other than a ramping up of Empire abroad and at home, is completely bogus.
Some on the alt-left argued for months that Trump would represent just that, the unmasking of Empire and that somehow that would hasten it’s collapse.
It was a notion of folly then, and is so now.
