Power for the last time: Trump devours American politics.

927richardseymour

The difference between the Republicans and the Democrats in this election was that the Democratic Party management, its traditional establishment, managed to keep control - and the Republican management did not. And that is, I suspect, the biggest reason why the Republican party candidate won.

Writer Richard Seymour surveys the wrecked landscape of American politics after Trump's victory - from the collapsed neoliberal center, to the abandonment of politics from the top and bottom of American society - and calls for the left to embrace militant disruption - as resistance in the face of Trumpism, and uniting factor in forging a new political class.

Richard and his fellow editors at Salvage wrote the essay Saturn devours his young: President Trump.
