We accidentally infected ourselves with a dose of dystopia and I am waiting to see if it develops into terminal monarchy or if the current dismantling of our Constitution is just a temporary malady that will soon pass, hopefully without lasting scars.
Our new disease is an intelligent permutation of the old feudal system that ruined Europe. An insidious, festering disease, perhaps introduced methodically by an enemy working for years to incubate the virus and infect America, causes fear and hatred as it ferments misogynistic white racial superiority. We know if left unchecked, it can be fatal. The final symptom is the permanent elimination of liberty and freedom.

Politics had nothing to do with an unqualified, self-admitted philanderer walking through the front door of the white house leaving a qualified, dedicated politician and her overpaid staff of consultants at the gate wondering what happened. I know what happened: we sent a bully to Washington to teach the politicians who forgot about us a lesson. We did it on purpose. We did to Washington D.C. what Fidel Castro did to the United States with the Mariel boatlift.

As a result, we now have the most corrupt Presidential administration in my lifetime, even worse than Nixon. Voters didn’t know Nixon was morally corrupt, but almost every voter in 2016 knew Trump wasn’t someone you’d let count your silverware or anywhere near your teenage daughter. But they liked belligerent Trump better than ingratiating Hilary – especially with the external meddling – and he was handed the key to our National mansion.

We’ve had the inoculation, now lets see if we get a reaction to it. Psychologist William J. McGuire may unfortunately be correct, however: If the dose of the disease we’ve received doesn’t cause the voting public to suffer personally, they will simply accept the symptoms as part of the normal future. McGuire’s inoculation theory – according to Wikipedia – states “functions as a strategy to protect attitudes from change – to confer resistance to counter-attitudinal influences, whether such influences take the form of direct attacks or sustained pressures.” If we don’t defeat the disease with our inoculation, we may just become so insensitive to the blisters and fever we succumb to it without a fight. If the immunization takes place, however, nepotism, seditious narcissism, and treason in the office of the Presidency and in Congress will join polio as something we won’t worry about for a long, long time.

As the rest of the world watched incredulously, we were reminded terrible plagues may not be really eliminated, just dormant, and given the right conditions for incubation, will reinfect us. Not just measles, but tyranny and monarchy as well.

Perhaps America will heal itself and recover. But, perhaps not. Perhaps Tyranny will continually adapt just like the viruses that render antibiotics ineffective and the United States of America will never recover. After all, we are a capitalistic society. All the disease has to do is cloak itself with money.
