Thomas Jefferson wrote originally – When people fear their government, there is tyranny; when government fears its people, there is liberty.

Having been chastised in the past for voicing an opinion differing from that of the regime, I do not presume here that my voice will amount to anything constructive. Despite and still, in the name of principle, in the name of a liberty that perhaps would exist if fear did not so dominate, I must speak up and out against the relentless intolerable tyrannical passive-aggressive abuse of Trump, waste of protoplasm, invigilator-from-hell, who revels in the discomfort, the anguish he inflicts upon others – others, not merely his unfortunate subordinates, but, to him, his inferiors, his subjects, there only for his sadistic amusement.

Amongst the lower ranks, the common woman and man, who must bow to this despotism, the name of Trump gives rise to a distaste so virulent, involuntary expectoration must be swallowed, leaving only quiet curses audibly shared with sympathetic ears when Trump is too distant to hear.

Yet to his sycophantic minions, Trump is king of his domain, of their domain of imbecility. Some of the best words in the English language describe this relationship – together with sycophantic, cringing, fawning, obsequious, parasitical, servile. To those pulling his strings behind the scenes, Trump either deflects all notice of his ruthlessness,  or brandishes it, freeing him to wield his authoritarian will against those subservient to him.

Reason has no place in an organisation so deluded. Submit, obey, publicly surrender all decency, all dignity, all honour, as you flatter his ego in passive resignation.

Should sense ever return to power, when brilliance defies cowardice, when domestic fascism again is no longer endured, the masses, done, again, at last, with indoctrination, with hysteria, unable to bear any longer the insufferable bullying of Trump, maybe, in impeachment (tried, once, half-heartedly, afraid to succeed, content at failure), in dishonour, refuting at last his fanatical fantasies, granting right where right is due, then, maybe order and harmony will return to the lives of the majority of well-intended, able-minded, good-hearted souls yet abiding in the currently calamitous States Once-United of America.
