Winds of Disruption or Dysfunction?

Nothing was more certain in this Presidential election: the winds of disruption were stronger than the currents of status quo. However, wish as we might, the populist tsunami that Trump tapped into and surfed to victory will not so quickly settle back into a more rational, national skepticism in the name of accountability. Zealots will not soon forgive or forget perceived or real conditions, threats and biases against them, their beliefs, or their candidates. Will the office change Trump, or Trump change the office? Is Trump the rare leader who can brush aside populist mandates, and campaign paper tigers when reality bites? My fingers are crossed. Hope springs eternal amid staffing turmoil, media shills and shrills, and tweet twerking. Yet, it is perhaps more realistic to have faith in, and hope that our republic of checks and balances remain intact and in full force. Of course, each of us must also be tuned in and proactively engaged, as you suggest (“The People andthe Presidency,” March editorial).

The Trump and Modi Show

Extremely well-articulated article (Prof. TinazPavri’s March cover story) to learn about the history and implications of Indo-American relations over the years leading up to the present. It will be very interesting to watch how this relationship develops under Trump. Hope it is not as erratic, unpredictable, irrational, and crazy based on late night or early morning Twitts by Trump.
