Donald Trump speaks for a frustrated and angry electorate that has been drawn into brawls reminiscent of the street fights between Nazis and Communists in the early 1930s.

The spectacle of fascist and leftist mobs was given an extraterrestrial twist in the 1967 British film Quartermass and the Pit (US title: Five Million Years to Earth), in which scientists investigate a mysterious object and nearby hominids buried in an extension of the London Underground.

They originally believe the probe might be one of Hitler’s rockets but ultimately discover in the object the remains of horned locust-like creatures: Martians who came to Earth five million years ago and shaped human evolution. The spacecraft has a mind of its own and begins to possess Londoners with ancient memories of a race war in which the Martians cleanse the hives of weaker members of the race and make Mars great again. The possessed Brits riot and attack those who do not share their racial memory.

The Martian psyche takes the form of a towering specter, which is ultimately “grounded” and destroyed by the iron in a construction crane.

As allegory, the film suggests that humans have an ancient instinct for genocide that comes to the surface when a human locust raises its ugly head. Partisans on both sides want to purify America: Eliminate the fascists thugs or dispose of the left-wing filth.

Only a well-grounded leader with an iron will can defeat the Donald.

In other words instead of a democracy or even a republic you think america needs a monarchy or even worse, a dictatorship.

Honestly! America, land of the free, what a ****ing joke.

Do you have a problem with "well-grounded" or do you prefer a weak politician who changes his opinion with every change in public mood? I don't equate "iron will" with "iron fist." Given the inequities of the Electoral College and the gross violation of "one man-one vote" evident in the U.S. Senate, our status as a democracy or republic was always somewhat suspect.

I will give you that. America really does not have a good form of governance.

It is not the well grounded part it is the iron will part. If there was a war on and a churchill was needed then fine. But there's not so the need for someone who rules with an iron fist is not required.

Strength in a leader is fine but he is in the end, only there to serve the will of the people.

I understand what you are saying but think that trump is a cult of personality and wanting someone with an iron will is simply swapping one cult of personality with another.
