Trump Incapable Of Reflection Or Humility

Today, in a shoot from the hip style press conference at the Trump Tower, Mr. Trump reverted back to his original, indefensible, appallingly incompetent and mistaken position that liberal protesters were also to blame for the heartbreaking murder of an innocent and lovely young woman: Heather Heyer. This is a sentiment of fascist authoritarians everywhere. They often view victims of crime at the hands of dominators and abusive cowards as somehow complicit in the damage they suffer. Trump has demonstrated that he cannot be anything other than a malignant, self serving bigot. He appears literally incapable of even the smallest amount of humility or self reflection. Any decent human being would show some degree of contrition, concern or regret. I think even Bush could have managed that.

Trump tapped the seething, poisonous hatred of right wing nationalism to propel his candidacy, and feed his narcissism. He bears much responsibility for the heartbreaking death in Charlottesville.

The Triumph Of Human As Unfeeling Predator

Social media is a buzz right now with the cost of Melania Trump’s choice not to live in the White House (apparently this is around 400,000. dollars per day), and continue her lavish, opulent lifestyle. “Melania Trump’s decision not to move into the White House is costing the country more in security than the annual budget for the National Endowment for the Arts.” – Quoted from the New York Times

I would suggest Melania’s thoughtless, narcissistic consumption, the cost of which could save countless poverty stricken children’s lives by providing the most basic human needs, will actually increase as her husband becomes more consumed with and immersed in a job he didn’t really want, and discovers the adulation and supply that drove all this waning while he actually has to attempt some semblance of governing. I imagine this will strain any love or joy in their lives, and she will feel even more isolated. So I suspect the conditions the New York Times details here will intensify.

Melania’s thoughtless, self serving hedonism reminds me that the Trump presidency is all about the rise of human as vapid, unfeeling predator. If animals were tortured for her to wear a fur hat, so what? Clearly Lady Gaga feels the same way, as she proudly displays animals who were tortured to death by anal electrocution for her vanity. One problem with this triumph is that it will eventually reduce this exquisite blue jewel of a planet and all its vulnerable creatures to ash: and as dangerous and destructive trends continue, render us a fate like the people uncovered in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius clutching desperately at the air, gasping for their last breath while pyroclastic clouds of toxic gas and lethal temperatures made Pompeii great again.

This Is Not Normal

Every photo I see of a man abusing a cow or pig in a factory farm breaks my heart wide open again; and nearly shuts it down with rage, sadness, despair. Culture is an illusion of civility. The more embedded in unthinking Western culture you are, the more savage and brutal your lifestyle. You just don’t see it. Most of us make the most savage choices, daily; It’s just that the most horrific brutality goes on just underneath the surface. For example Wal Mart sells clothing lined with dog fur; the dogs are skinned alive in China. Until I became aware of this, and changed my own buying and eating habits, I too was a part of it. There is nothing ‘normal’ about this. Culture gives us the illusion that it’s normal. It is unsustainable savagery in the extreme: to the Earth, to sentient beings who’s capacity for feeling, heartbreak and love is at least equal to ours, and to our own hearts and bodies.
