Donald Trump is the end result of every subversive tendency in the Sexual Revolution. He is Justice Kennedy's "at the heart of liberty is the right to define one's own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life" incarnate and personified. That concept, of course, has nothing to with liberty: quite to the contrary, it is the installation of a tyrannical, uncontrolled ego at the centre of each human being's universe - the invention of a world of a million million tyrants. To "define one's own concept of meaning, of the universe" is to impose it on external reality. It is to say "that is what I want, that is what I order" to the world at large. Now the child of that thought walks into the White House.
The best thing about this is that it may at last have killed the insane Trump candidacy (I can't believe there was anyone in the Republican Party disposed to give this lecherous crook the time of day). The only good thing, in turn, about the Trump candidacy, is that it should make us Italians feel less bad about Berlusconi.
