LIVING IN FEAR

Noted author Peter Carey, holder of dual U.S. – Australian citizenship, remains fearful of America and Americans after 25 years residing there:

“I’m terrified of the United States.

“I wouldn’t say I’m terrified of New York, but I’m terrified of the United States. I’m terrified of Donald Trump!”

After such a long time in the United States, he says his views of the US are now more nuanced, but in this Season of Trump he sees “some glimpses of the unthinkable”.

“I think the country feels more precarious and the future less knowable than it has in the past.”

Just another old man fearful of change. And speaking of old men:

It’s fair to say now, that if the angry old white men who are a rump constituency in the Republican Party were to hit on Adolf Hitler as a presidential nominee, the party establishment likely would say, ‘well, that’s nice – he’ll do.’

A dead German dictator would be a better president than Hillary.
