Personal Reflections ... Politics ...

Here’s a quote from the diary of Dag Hammarskjold (“Markings”), one that may apply when deeply pondering Donald Trump — i.e., just who is this man? —

1951 — “Assenting to his possibility — why? Does he sacrifice himself for others, yet for his own sake – in megalomania? Or does he realize himself for the sake of others? The difference is that between a monster and a man. ‘A new commandment I give unto you: that ye love one another.'”

FINAL CONUNDRUM — if there is a “Monster”, what to do? The fastest way to dispose of a monster is to create a new monster. You may well vanquish the old monster. But then what to do with the new monster? How do you answer to that “new commandment” when dealing with a Donald J. Trump?

  1. Jim, I heard yesterday what might be a very small hint re DJT: An implication he might resign. Time will tell. Doesn’t seem likely; but then again, he may choose resignation instead of jail for him and his kids. It’s almost too easy a solution. I’d also like to see (as a woman I know mentioned to me) the speaker of the House take over should DJT leave. Now there’s a happy tho’t: Nancy Pelosi as prez! Too much to hope for? Time will tell.
