an anarchist take on the election:

“The problem is democracy itself: the form of government that brought Adolf Hitler into office. In response to the polls, we assert that no one should have the right to rule over anyone else. Neither Donald Trump, nor Barack Obama, nor Mother Theresa could ever use such power for good. We have to create horizontal structures and autonomous movements that can meet our needs directly, rather than continuing to feed resources into structures that will be used against us for the benefit of a few.”

Make Babylon Great Again!

“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
He has become a dwelling place of 1%ers,
a haunt of every foul spirit,
with waters covered in Corexit,
and the land covered with black snakes.
For all the nations have drunk
of the wine of the wrath of his rapaciousness,
and the kings of the earth have all flown on Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727,
and the bankers of the earth have grown rich from the power of his luxury.”

​Then I heard another voice from heaven saying,

“Come away from him, my people,
so that you do not take part in his sins,
and so that you do not share in his plagues;
for his sins are heaped high as heaven,
and God has remembered his iniquities.
Render to him as he himself has rendered,
and repay him double for his deeds;
mix a double draught for him in the cup he mixed.
As he glorified himself and lived luxuriously,
so give him a like measure of torment and grief.
Since in his heart he says,
‘I will build a great wall;
I will grab them by the pussy,
and I will never see grief,’
therefore his plagues will come in a single day–
pestilence and mourning and famine —
and he will be burned with fire (you’re fired);
for mighty is the Lord God who judges him.”
And the kings of the earth, the gang rapists who lived in luxury with him, will weep and wail over him when they see the smoke of his burning; they will stand far off, in fear of his torment, and say,

“Alas, alas, the great city,
Babylon, the mighty city!
For in one election your judgment has come.”

And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn for him, since no one buys their cargo anymore, cargo of gold, silver, jewels and pearls, oil and bitumen, and natural gas fracking, fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet, drones and handguns and armored personnel carriers, bronze, iron, and marble, cattle and sheep, automobiles and tanks, slaves—and black lives.

“You have said it doesn’t matter
what they media writes about you,
as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass
but this will be lost to you,
never to be found again!”

The merchants of these wares, who gained wealth from him, will stand far off, in fear of his torment, weeping and mourning aloud,

“Alas, alas, the great city,
from Wall Street,
to the Pacific Exchange,
adorned with surveillance cameras,
with militarized police forces, and bear and bull markets!

For in one election all this wealth has been laid waste!”
And all stockbrokers and daytraders, bankers and all who trade on the market, stood far off and cried out as they saw the smoke of his burning,

“What city was like the great city?”

And they threw dust on their heads, as they wept and mourned, crying out,

“Alas, alas, the great city,
where all who had invested in the free market
grew rich by his wealth!
For in one election he has been laid waste.”

Rejoice over him, O heaven, you Indigenous peoples and black lives and queer folk! For God has given judgment for you against him.

Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying,

“With such violence Babylon the great city
will be thrown down,
and will be found no more;
and the sound of drilling and hydraulic fracturing and of nuclear testing and arms-making
will be heard in you no more;
and factories of any trade
will be found in you no more;
and the sound of the power plants
will be heard in you no more;
and the light of streetlamps
will shine in you no more;
and the voice of Republicans and Democrats
will be heard in you no more;
for your bankers were the magnates of the earth,
and all nations were deceived by your sorcery.
And in you was found the blood of prophets and of saints,
and of all who have been slaughtered on earth.”
