"Make America Great Again." The short-term history of this phrase speaks to Donald Trump's strange combination of anti-establishment rhetoric, political and fi nancial corruption, verbal and physical violence, and popular appeal. It conjures up images of rallies in which racist, ableist, and xenophobic cries are delivered with religious fervor. These rallies are a postmodern tent revival in which violent intensity promises to accelerate providence, though a providence that has as much to do with entrepreneurial success as anything spiritual.1 Trump and his supporters are winners; the rest of the world are losers; and America will return to its appointed position of greatness only if it gives itself over to this fundamental truth.
