The Second Coming- William Butler Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand. The Second Coming!

Modern day Americans love celebrities. In a bizarre way electing celebrities for important political roles seems like our new normal. Donald Trump may take credit for opening the flood gates, yet it didn’t actually start with him. John F Kennedy was behind the genesis of this event. The Kennedy’s were basically American royalty. Even the British monarchy desired their swag.  Some could also argue the phenomena  began with Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt or even George Washington. Barack Obama wasn’t exactly a movie star, yet his success brought him into the spotlight of a Frank Sinatra. Bill Clinton played his saxophone … Continue reading Is Oprah Winfrey Running for Oval Office?
