“Kill the pig! Cut his throat! Kill the pig! Bash him in!” was what the stranded boys chanted as they ran rampage on their island in search of one of their number to slaughter. Surely it is unlikely to see such a scene from William Golding’s Lord of the Flies in what is supposed to be one of the most sophisticated societies in the world. Yet the American president just encouraged police chiefs to take justice into their own hands and wreak violence on the ‘bad guys’. He’s taking down the very structures and limits that make our lives livable. And he is doing so purely in the interests of a small group of very rich people who will profit from the chaos he is spreading.. #NotMyPresident.
