Wagner's Parsifal and our electoral aftermath

I think my last post turned out to be rather prophetic and possibly shows that I saw it coming!

And it's not only Trump but an almost worldwide turn to the right. For instance Marine Le Pen, the extreme right wing candidate in France now thinks it quite possible that she and her party will take over the French government.

Lest you think I'm not taking this fiasco seriously, I can only say I feel like Amfortas in Wagner's "Parsifal" who has a wound which won't heal.

But I don't think it can be healed by an impure fool, if you know who I mean!
