GARBLED PRESIDENCY

28-07-2017

The title of this entry is taken from the attached excerpts of an interview by President Trump in the New York Times. No witch hunt, just the garbled words and thoughts of the U. President himself. Shocking and sickening to follow the news of the latest U.S. President, a man without any political experience, without a moral compass,without any interest beyond himself. And of course, there has been collusion with the Russians. Nothing wrong with it. Winning an election is like making money in business. Everything is allowed to help you win. Just read the interview and its announcement of the next round of fighting in the White House. Everybody must be loyal to the President, not to the US Constitution or the rule of law. The President himself needs not to be loyal to anybody else. As a consequence he publicly attacks his Attorney General and his new communications director publicly attacks teh White House Chief of Staff. Sad, sickening and shameful for American democracy.

We no longer felt to be in the midst of it. Europeans on the Western side of the Iron Curtain0 felt relatively at ease with Europe’s division. The era of Détente as we called it, was0 considered to be a fairly stable and long-lasting political condition, even after Soviet tanks crushed Dubcek’s socialism with a human face in Pragu

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.
