Uncle Wendell on The Donald…

…troll as President…http://hub.jhu.edu/2016/12/08/wendell-berry-eric-schlosser-conversation/


Now a man who is a product of television and capitalism has won the presidency, and there is no pretense that he is anything else. Now we know, the cavalry is not coming. -Mary Berry-


We do this country a great harm if we let Donald Trump become our avatar of populism. Donald Trump’s populism gains power from the lie that governance is easy. “The economy’s bad? Well, has anybody tried making great deals? What about the best deals?” “I sure would like some kind of structure around our border that would keep rapists out, and a door that could let good people in, but a wall sounds expensive. Could we make another country pay for it?”
