How bureaucrats are fighting the voters for control of our country.

Donald Trump was elected president last November by winning 306 electoral votes. He pledged to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C., to overturn the system of politics that had left the nation’s capital and major financial and tech centers flourishing but large swaths of the country mired in stagnation and decay.

“What truly matters,” he said in his Inaugural Address, “is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.”

Donald Trump did not cause the divergence between government of, by, and for the people and government, of, by, and for the residents of Cleveland Park and Arlington and Montgomery and Fairfax counties. But he did exacerbate it. He forced the winners of the global economy and the members of the D.C. establishment to reckon with the fact that they are resented, envied, opposed, and despised by about half the country. But this recognition did not humble the entrenched incumbents of the administrative state. It radicalized them to the point where they are readily accepting, even cheering on, the existence of a “deep state” beyond the control of the people and elected officials.

Folk der lyver og bedrager, blot for blindt at gavne sig selv, og i min lille verden er jeg efterhånden blevet bekræftet i, at jeg selv og mine medmennesker nok ikke er helt så gode, som vi gerne fremstiller os.

    Hvorledes vi får en verden, der beskytter sig selv mod os, er det evigt vigtigste spørgsmål. Lyt bare til en gammel mand:
