"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Tea With Trump

Oops!  I meant, Tea With Mussolini.  A timely film if there ever was one.

As Mussolini came to power, Lady Hester, the leader of a small group of elderly British women known as the Scorpioni, assures her ladies that Mussolini will ensure their safety during the political turmoil which embroiled Italy at the time.  So confident was she in IL Duce's protection, she headed off to Rome to have tea with him, a photo op, and to guarantee his promise there would be nothing to worry about under his regime.

It was such a good film.

Speaking of Trump, did you know Reagan and Trump had a lot in common? Both had notable heads of hair.  Isn't that something!  I came across that bit of trivia online.  I think it proves that he couldn't be like Mussolini because Il Duce was bald.  Duce bag was so loved, they used to chant 'Duce! Duce! Duce!' at all the rallies.  Just like Trump's supporters: 'Trump! Trump! Trump!'  Violence included.

BTW: I just came across the following analysis of Mr. Trump's personality:
Donald Trump is not simply a classic narcissist — he is, in fact, a “malignant and, probably, psychopathic narcissist.”  - Source
It seems pretty obvious to me.
