- Trump’s “Shameless” Speech (Greek: Parrhesia)
Trump speaks “shamelessly” like a Cynic philosopher and does not arrest his speech for the sake of convention or beltway political ideology. This makes him an unlikely champion of truth-seeking. Ideology is the enemy of truth because it hinders our capacity to use the biological error-correction mechanism that is speech, our only way to calibrate ourselves to the rational world around us.
Politicians claim to “want” free speech for themselves and others, but only Trump dares show it in his actions.
2. Trump’s Philosophical Pragmatism
Whereas most of the leaders of Europe hang themselves by an ideology, Trump has no ideology. Philosophically, Trump appears to be an American Pragmatist — he believes that what is true is what works, and believes that it makes no sense to pursue ideals that don’t work.
All the most violent and murderous ideologies in the world — socialism, communism, post-modernism, etc. were all born and championed first in Europe. Among Western nations, America alone has proven able to resist them. . You can tell Trump is this current-year hero against murderous European ideologies because all of the cowards of Europe hate him more than the gates of Hell.
3. Trump’s Advocacy of Armed Citizens
What European leaders and American leftists have in common is their distrust of armed citizenry. According to their ideology, the only ones who should be armed in any society are the police — making them literal advocates of the police-state they claim to despise.
Trump is quite different. He appears to want the police and the American citizens to have rough parity — not precise parity, because no group can be more powerful than the government without ipso facto becoming a new government. Still, the American citizens and the American police are closer in parity than any other citizen-police relationship anywhere on the planet.
4. Trump’s Belief in God
Trump’s belief in God is more than a simple nuance of his American character. It is, first of all, where he derives the notion that American people should come first. His oath to them is both religious and sacred. Without a sense of the sacred, true loyalty to anything is impossible. Hence why the common Democrat believes that a criminal from Guatemala has as many rights as a native citizen — if not more rights than a native citizen.
This is logically incomprehensible to anyone who believes in loyalty precisely because loyalty is a sacred thing.
Secondly, Trump’s belief in God is probably the reason he has children. Trump’s children are also probably the reason why he has a grand political vision for a new American century: it’s for his descendants, not for himself.
Along side atheism, European leaders are almost all barren or childless. This in turn creates their barren and childless view of the world.
Why should Merkel care about the future of Germany if her lineage ends with her? Why should being “French” mean anything to Macron, if Macron intends to leave no family in France? Children are also a manifestation of the sacred and without children, human beings have no direct and biological interest in the future beyond their deaths. Trump has many interests beyond his death — they are interests for his people, and his children are among his people.
These four reasons are what make Trump the archetypal hero of the new American century — whether he knows it or not. His very existence is an advocacy for the American people, their sovereignty, and their continued power into the unknowable future. Take just one look at the near-psychosis Trump has created across all the cowards and petty tyrants of the world, and his meaning is clear: he is a Great Man of History, his presence in the world eclipses all his predecessors and in the future his memory will be a distant beacon for the dream that was once America — the dream that we can be better than Europeans.
