A Lament for America in the Age of Trump – 30 March 2018

“Like all Americans, or like all Americans who are conscious of being American, Parker and Zema’s father always believed he was his country. But lately he’s come to realize that if he and his family didn’t emerge unscathed from their American crisis, American faith in the early part of the twenty-first century didn’t emerge at all. By the conclusion of the new century’s first score of years, only those who have a stake in an American idea defined by wealth and power can still speak of that idea so shamelessly, since wealth and power is the only American idea left.” – Steve Erickson.
