Henry Rollins: Trump's Win Shredded The Veil Of Civility (And Maybe It's About Time)
Submitted by: kalron⚫ 1 year ago in
Some interesting words post-Election 2016 from Henry Rollins. He drops a few open-ended questions, but he makes some interesting points...
An excerpt from his regular column in the LA Weekly:
Being on the ground and moving from place to place during the recent election cycle has been like watching an animal in agony as it slowly dies. When it finally exhaled its last breath yesterday, it occurred to me that now we know everything. All the people who had previously lurked in shadows and back rooms were now out in the open. All was shown and now all is known. America is presently at its most transparent. The veil of civility has been shredded and maybe it’s about time. It’s a rough room, America, but at least we now know where we’re at.
You could say that the Trump presidency will be one of the greatest lessons and cautionary tales of our lifetime. The thing is, obviously, there are millions of people who didn’t see it that way. This whirlwind will be only the trailer for the epic battle that will take place in 2020.
