The Unpopulist: Trump May Unwittingly Lift the Fog of Misinformation

Many see the Trump presidency as an unmitigated disaster with an accelerated reduction in all social services, a conservatively closed supreme court, attacks on constitutional rights, etc etc., but in fact it may give rise to a more sophisticated political landscape in the US.

After all Trump’s pronouncements as well as his appointments elucidate the power that capital holds over the US government. Already one finds a remark on Fox (sic) about the contempt in which the founding fathers held the masses and CNN flunkies commenting on Wall Street rapacity.

These are but throwaway remarks easily reversed if necessary as is usual with the US media, but it indicates a break in the fog of misinformation that is let loose on the population every second. The masses do not so easily accept any longer pre-chewed propaganda and Trump has so far shaken apart much of a wall of obfuscation that would exist with a continuing Democratic executive.

It remains to be seen how far the sterner approach in ruling class approaches will cause the scales to start dropping off in a mostly disintegrating society, thereby enlightening the ruled masses. Fact is, most likely quite unwittingly Trump may well prove a catalyst for reform.

There seems to be no doubt that the reversal of elite support from Clinton to Trump is caused by the fact that the establishment wants a strong man in charge, someone not beholden to any liberal factions. The slow but definitive disintegration of popular belief in hollow promises and half-hearted small reforms necessitates for the government to adopt stronger anti-democratic measures, which Trump is superbly trained to execute. But the danger as can be learnt from the French and Russian revolutions is that the tighter the spring of repression is bound, the closer the whole system slides toward a state of terminal unbalance, a ray of hope for the coming four years.
