As I reposted this to my FB feed, a memory sprang to mind. Love & Rockets — No New Tale to Tell. To this day, this line stares back at me in defiance: “You cannot go against Nature, no matter what you do. Because going against Nature is a part of Nature, too.”

I agree. We cannot use the Master’s Tools. Bernie is not revolutionary because he still uses the Master’s Tools. Hillary — same. Elizabeth — non-issue. She didn’t run.

On the other hand, Trump — exploits every weakness of the democratic system to his populist advantage and personal demagogue agenda. He is a threat. Rhetoric aside, he is master player with a crack PR team. He has nothing to fear and it shows. He is the revolutionary because he is standing the system on its head. He embodies the law of unintended consequences. He is also not the revolution I was looking for *waves hand*.
