Trump's withdrawal of America from the Paris Climate Accord is the latest of his "America First" policies that exposes the truth humanity works hard to conceal.
Our world order is based upon self centred greed and the desire for those who have to keep their advantage, and those who haven't to either catch up, overtake or sink the ship.
This unattractive and ultimately counter productive selfishness at the heart of our present trajectory is being embarrassingly, undiplomatically and uncomfortably paraded for all to see by Trump.
The U.K. is following his approach in Brexit, but in their "oh so polite and British way" we would never admit to it.
The talk is always of what we will get and gain, what will make us stronger and richer, what will give us the best advantage and re immigration what will attract the "brightest and best". It is a distasteful smorgasbord of egocentricity that spells only a distress that is all too raw in the present and only looks likely to intensify.
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man.
To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression
is truly an act of a pure heart."
