It’s all about transparency and accountability.
For the first time in more than two generations, the United States is governed by a President whose financial life remains stubbornly shrouded in secrecy.
His environmental policy harkens back to the rapacious avarice of the so-called “robber barons” of the 19th century.
And a significant number of Americans seem to be okay with that.
Or at least they will be until their own finances are in ruins and almost everything they eat, drink or breathe is toxic.
Of course, in the end, the irony is that the ultra-wealthy will end up trapped by their own heedless avarice, imprisoned in a tightly circumscribed bubble that becomes their permanent and eternal habitat.
Of course, eventually the walls are breached, their sole comfort being that they will be the last to go. There will be none left to mourn or bury or remember them.
But they will have lasted the longest.
Well, THAT was certainly depressing! Time for some comic relief, I think!
Okaaayy, let’s try again shall we?…
