The Age of Devolution

A chilling synchronicity that Roger Ailes, agent of Fox News’s long run to Trump, leaves town on the day that Trump accepts the nomination. Brought to mind William Lloyd Garrison who opened The Liberator in 1831 to advance the anti-slavery movement and the drive to Civil War. Garrison shut it down in the last days of 1865, the year of the signing at Appomattox, his job done.

It is true as has been said at the Republican Convention that a country without a border is not a country; it is an abstraction. But so is a state without borders and the states have lost their borders as early as 1913 with the passage of the 17th amendment. For the second time, North America yields to the federalist abstraction. Third time counting the American Revolution.
We enter into the Age of Devolution, Trump and Boris Johnson only the beginning.
