We mustn’t confuse the present US regime with those of the recent past, and especially with the ‘Neo-Con’ one behind George W Bush. The following article in next month’s The Atlantic magazine by David Frum, a leading conservative commentator and speechwriter for GW, should point the difference. It’s a devastating analysis of the Trump phenomenon and the dangers it presents to American democracy, and all the more enlightening in view of its provenance. Highly recommended.
If Trump is toppled, it may be from this quarter, rather than by the Democrats.
