America is deafened by the sound of Trump’s beating his own tin drum. From the incessant din that Donald Trump sends up each day, one can easily infer that Trump possesses a despotic disposition. He has the temper of a belligerent adolescent. Trump apparently expects his hearers to submit cringingly to what he says, claiming that the authority for his views comes from his dazzling achievements in life.
Unfortunately, Trump’s convictions are based on his enormous self-satisfaction rather than on any insightful or original discernment of the fundamentals of an issue. His assertions are simply a rehash of hackneyed and commonplaces, and stale platitudes that the ignorant accept with compliancy. In fact, Trump is a man of dull mind. He is one who flatters the mob in order to mislead it. His stale commonplaces shed little light on sound, vital knowledge. Trump appeals to prejudice and ready-made sympathy, ignoring the fact that prejudice is, first and last, is the bastard child of ignorance.
Trump’s campaign for the U.S. Presidency is but another chapter of the warfare between what a man is and what a man he has. It is clear to all except the blind that Trump wants to obtain political power at any cost. He is one of those, like Hillary, who think that life’s greatest pleasures consist of being admired and obeyed. Unfortunately, those cravings have their origin in vanity and unbridled self love, and the conduct of both resemble a person who flaunts his influence and power because of a forged will. They are living rebuttals of the view that the more a person has in themselves, the less they will need the worship of the outside world.
