Love Him or Loathe Him, Trump Is Liberating Us All From the Empire’s Lies

 An Unexpected Age of Wonders: The blessing of the Great Disruptor.

Trump may be everything his critics says he is (except a Russian agent) but he fully exposes how corrupt, venal, and petty the established order is Alexander Blok, one of the smartest and most noble of Russians, wrote this amazing essay on Catiline, a Roman rebel whose plot was crushed and who was utterly maligned by the father of all bullshit, Cicero.



So Catiline was this patrician, a decadent SOB who, when mistreated and challenged by the Roman establishment, organized the Roman deplorables and started a rebellion.

It was squashed of course, but for Blok, he remained a hero. Blok calls Catiline the Roman Bolshevik, and insists on approaching him not from Cicero’s moralizing NYT-like perspective, but from the perspective of World Revolution.

For Blok, as he puts it, the heart of the Roman Empire stopped when Christ was born. It continued for another few hundred years, but in a zombie-like state until its petty, militaristic, provincial, materialistic character was finally exposed as the bluff it always was, and it collapsed under the weight of its own corruption. And here is Blok’s paradoxical view: Catiline’s rebellion makes sense only from this perspective.

Catiline might have been corrupt, decadent, debauched and what have you. Yet, he did expose how rotten Rome was. For that, both Blok and Ibsen (another rebel against stifling bourgeois order) place Catiline in heaven. Which takes me to Trump. Whatever his critics say, he has it, and then some, but like Catiline, he fully exposes how corrupt, venal, and petty the established order is.

The genie cannot be put back into the bottle. Mass media is exposed for what it is: a spinning machine for the militaristic oppressive order, a purveyor of fake news. And this is not the view of some obscure academic like Chomsky. It is the view of the President of the United States.

Isn’t it liberating?! No more butchery, bombing, and destruction, while the press conducts its cheer-leading campaign in support of another “humanitarian intervention”, be it Serbia, Iraq, or Libya. The genie is out of the bottle. People are not buying it anymore.

Politicians are corrupt! Trump exposes it. Mass media lies and spins! He exposes it. Mass media is in obvious disarray. The only thing the Establishment learned to do during the ‘End of History’ period was to spin and promote government policies. Now, with their insane hatred of Trump, they can’t do it any longer. And because they also became so lazy and corrupt as they suckled at the teat of the Establishment, they can’t bring themselves to expose political or military corruption either.

The genie cannot be put back into the bottle. Mass media is exposed for what it is: a spinning machine for the militaristic oppressive order, a purveyor of fake news. And this is not the view of some obscure academic like Chomsky. It is the view of the President of the United States.

The only thing left to them is “Russia-gate”. How pathetic. So let them expose that Trump, ‘the Emperor’, is naked. He merely laughs back at them, and wiggles his naked derrière in their faces. And not just his, but their own. Their naked cowardliness, their naked corruption, their naked immaturity and lack of civic honor. The only thing they know how to do is to be sycophantic and sing ‘Hail to the Chief’. And now they can’t even do that because… #NotMyPresident! What a glorious scandal! The empire built on lies, corruption, militarism, and petty materialism no longer can pretend to be anything else. And we should all be grateful to Trump for that. And to Americans who voted for him. . .

  1. Thanks for reposting this. I’m not a big fan of Trump, but all this Trump-bashing is getting on my nerves because it’s getting us absolutely nowhere. What we need from media now is non-partisan analysis like this about why the US is in the mess it’s in.

    You are WC… Agree with your analysis… I still believe all elections are rigged and it’s all a BIG show… But I have to say that I am enjoying all the ‘truth exposure’ as it is much needed… I don’t care who triggers the ‘truth tsunami’ as long as it happens and wakes the masses to the corruption and ‘how we got to where we are’… Trump is definitely shaking things up and for that, even I can find appreciation…
