Trump has promised to build a wall, deport millions of illegals, and stop people who hate us from migrating here.
Well, that is pretty good, but what we really wish is for Trump to be King and high priest, and his son to be grand inquisitor.
That is a mighty tall order, but it would stand a mighty good chance of curing civilizational decay.
We need him to be King or Emperor, because democracy is against us. We don’t want women and blacks voting. Democracy always tempts politicians to enfranchise or import low information voters that can be bought cheaply, obamaphone voters. Thus in the end, democracy winds up as the government electing a new people
We need him to be god, or high priest, or archbishop, so that there is a clearly defined official doctrine that one can piously believe and thereby be an acceptably good person. At present your company is in violation of affirmative action law unless everyone believes in equality twice as much as everyone else, that woman are just as good as men except that they are better, and any underperformance is due to evil sexist thoughts emitted by males, that blacks are just as good as whites and any underperformance is due to evil racist thoughts emitted by whites. The required holy doctrines are set by activist judges and social justice warriors, and thus escalate endlessly. No piety is safe from being deemed racist next year.
We need a grand inquisitor to rid state and quasi state institutions (courts and universities) of demon worshipers, and anyone who claims to be holier than the King, to shut down the holiness competition whereby every professor, every social justice warrior, and every judge tries to be twice as holy as every other.
Of course Trump is not an alt rightist, despite what the left tells themselves. The alt right is just one of the factions of the Trump coalition, and far from being the largest or most influential, though the fact that the alt right is allowed any legitimacy at all horrifies and outrages the left.
But, though just one faction, and far from the largest, Trump has so far shown no inclination to succumb to the pressure to dump parts of the coalition that brought him to power. Many of us expected that he would, and did not much care so long as he builds the wall, but so far, all seems well. He is holding his coalition together. Trump is loyal to those that are loyal to him, and an enemy to his enemies. And if he sliced off one part of his coalition, leftists would demand even more strongly that he slice off another.
So what are our chances of getting what we want, in addition to the wall and the reduced influx of black military age Muslims screaming for infidel blood and white pussy? What are our chances of getting God Emperor Trump, a fixed and safely unchanging holiness doctrine, and an inquisition to make it stick?
I don’t care if the Holy Trumpian doctrine of the divine Trump says that blacks are angels, and leprechauns exist, provided that next year you don’t have to say they are even better than that.
I rather think we stand a small but significant chance. You will have heard that the Obama/Trump transition is chaos. It is.
The problem however is not with Trump, but with the presidency. The presidency is a worm’s nest. Trump wants to transition the permanent government to doing what he damn well tells them, the permanent government wants to transition the merely temporary government into being their public relations boy as usual. Hence the transition is going extremely badly, indeed it is scarcely going at all.
The permanent government is run by committees that supply or deny people who sit on committees status and power and future career opportunities.
Thus, run by consensus of the most holy synod, no one is responsible, and it is impossible to discover who allocated money or authority for what policy, and difficult to determine what the real policy actually being implemented actually is, since the actual on-the-ground policy is unlikely to correspond to its official description.
This architecture makes it difficult to determine who to fire. Perhaps Trump can save time and mental effort by firing entire committees at once.
This architecture is unfixable, no matter how many political commissars you insert, except by not having stuff run by committees – except by reorganizing the permanent government so that it is responsive to a single will, by having money, power, responsibility and authority flow though clear overt formal official hierarchical channels that appear on an organization chart as a top down tree. As King Charles the first said, “No Bishop, no King”, meaning if no Bishop, then no King.
One can readily foresee that Trump is going to find dealing with a very decentralized organization frustrating and exhausting. He will issue orders and they will sink into the labyrinthine morass without a trace.
Trump being Trump, I think he not only wants to take charge of the Permanent Government, but is likely to do so, which is a revolutionary act for which he will need revolutionaries. Expect the left to set fire to the Reichstag at a convenient moment.
And if we don’t get God Emperor Trump and his holy inquisition, we will say we did and watch the leftists go even crazier.
