Product Description

Don Watson takes us on a journey of indignation and how it has been expressed in his forebears. His ire towards US politicians has a new moving target- Donald Trump.

The US President's primary pitch had less to do with giving people money or security than it was about vengeance. Trump exploited the anger we feel when we are slighted or taken for granted, turning the politics of a sophisticated democracy into something more like a blood feud. He promised to restore their dignity, slay their enemies, re-make the world according to old rites and customs. He stirred their indignation into tribal rage and rode it into the White House.

It was a scam, of course, but wherever there is indignation, lies and stupidity abound.Don Watson takes us on a journey of indignation and how it has been expressed in his forebears. His ire towards US politicians has a new moving target- Donald Trump.
