Trump as Hegelian


Whatever one thinks of the #Trump presidency, it is highly doubtful that Trump actually draws inspiration from Hegel.   - Keith Preston

Perhaps not. However, he seems to be embodying the Hegelian dialectic quite consistently. On the one hand, the Right and the Left are becoming more radical, but aren't people being pulled exponentially toward the middle as a reaction too? It is uncertain whether or not this middle is simply a means to stave off the inevitable collapse or if it will, in fact bring it fully about.

Listen to an example of someone else who entertains this possibility, if a bit sophistically, here.
