Trumpism is the outcome of the difference developing between the concepts of Democracy and Capitalism. The evolution of democratic institutions in times of prosperity has its downside. This gives occasion to populist movements to grow, out of the disturbances of perceived social inequalities rising out of vested interests cloaking inherent 'rights'.
These rights are demure applications on a case by case basis, but again hidden by de-facto regional backlash.
As Capitalism is obeying at least one Marxian tenet, among others , it is that accumulation of personal wealth increases at a greater rate the economy can adjust to the differences. Add to that diminishing returns on investments, in spite of the Fed's manipulation, and even perhaps insider notice to smart money as to the expected effects of such regulation, the buy ins will most probably be shorted out for the duration of the expected/manipulated downturn.
Whether currency manipulation has a dynamic parallel and /or tie in with political and ideological change, is by all manifestations, it seems to be a credible hypothesis.
So autocratism can be seen as a result of political expediency tied to market manipulation.
That such a method of dealing with post modern economic and political reality is becoming almost transparent, brings on the necessity to insure that any unexpectedly strong backlash be avoided.
The ideological vacuum created by the fall of Communism, minus the waning days of Democracy, has given hope to any credible social form of governance: Autocratism through Neo-Fascism. There simply, is nothing else that possibly can work, and then the question arises whether it is a populist, who needs a capacity to build, and even instigate such a rule, or weather the character of the times needs and shapes such a man.
This development, accompanied by increased vigilance, with the use of highly evolved technical snooping apparatus, via the media, is the reason why the attack on the media has also pre emoted any strong social surprises. They have you coming, while they are already going from there, long anticipated.
The ideology building of anti democratic mechanisms are largely in place, and most grass root attempts to dislodge the vested interests from not merely letting the processes of Capitol Gain , but enhance and emboldened it, is also obvious.
Whether this will lead to building a greater America, or not, is not predictable, since the only precedent to it may be only a shadow, in the early days of Democratic principles.
The effects of violent change, can be paralleled only a few centuries ago, with the demise of the ancien regime in France, whereupon the old hereditary vestiges of power and property were substituted by the modern princes of those, benefitting from money markets, advantages from taking interest, and commercial activities leading to it.
That these are unproductive efforts need not be examined, since they have been beaten to death, only a parting shot will be sufficient, that the US is no longer a producer of goods, since such production has become overpriced in terms of labor-cost.
So to try to hope, that Trump, a supposedly great business man can force international corporations to seek labor that's more expensive, is still far to early a guess, my feeling is, that apwith the passage of time, whatever will not be forgotten from the campaign promises, will certainly be dealt with, with a simultenious rise in autocratic power, with the assistance of cronies, masked as ideologues. That this is an unstoppable train is without a doubt, but what is at the end of the tunnel-wreck or some real light, is masked in uncertainty.
