The shock-waves of the political and cultural bombshell that just went off in the United States are still reverberating around the world.

President Donald J. Trump took office and immediately launched an aggressive agenda that is setting an unfamiliar and muscular tone of economic expansion and moral certainty.

Each promise he fulfills and each step he takes to assert his will, he gains the trust of those who believe in his vision. He also gains the fear of those who took advantage of a passive and directionless United States to foster their dreams of ideological empire.

The new President is a monster in terms of personal achievement and force of will dwarfing all the ex-Presidents who sat behind him as he delivered his inaugural speech. He is probably one of the few human beings who could authoritatively dismiss the Presidencies of Obama, Bush, Clinton and Carter. When the line "This American carnage stops right here and stops right now." was delivered, the former leaders of the United States looked chastened and visibly shrank under the withering indictment.

After years of beta males and females mindlessly haranguing each other in squabbles over the direction of the troop, a silver-back gorilla has claimed his place and will ram his instinctive will on the affairs of the tribe. The deterioration and decay that has become an accepted backdrop of American life will indeed stop right here and stop right now.

As it turns out, the law of nature curves towards justice too.
