"When a tiny cabal seizes power, monarchists, communists, fascists,or corporate, it creates a mafia economy and finally a mafia state. Donald Trump is not an nominally , he is the grotesque visage of a collapsed democracy. Trump and his coterie of billionaires generals, half wits, christian fascists, criminals, racists and deviants, play the roll of the Snopeses clan in some of William Faulkners novels. the Snopeses fill the power vacuum of a decayed south and ruthlessly seize control from the degenerated former slave holding aristoctic elites. Snopes and his extended family which include a killer, pedophile, bigomist, an arsonist, a mentally disabled man who copulated with a cow and a relative who sold tickets to witness the beastilality are fictional representations of the scum now elevated to the highest level of the federal government. They embody the moral rot unleashed by unfettered capitalism."
