Some Assembly Required

What the Trump campaign reveals is that, to populists and Republicans, the political establishment and its media arm are looked upon the way the commons and peasantry of 1789 looked upon the ancien regime and the king’s courtiers at Versailles.

A guillotine is an amazingly simple machine too.  Gallows are more American and even simpler.

The trick, once you start building them, is to stop before you get to the Reign of Terror stage.
