Letter: Regulations are a corrective for human flaws, which Trump epitomizes

Regulations are corrective, direct reflections of flaws in human nature. If you hate regulations, then manage your flaws.

We owe President Donald Trump a debt (operative word of the day) of gratitude for setting up the coming Great Compensation, when power will shift back to an enlightened, moral and aggressive administration, one that will restore the regulatory structure and detail needed to compensate for flawed human nature. And boy, is it flawed.

Just the realization that enough, but not a statistical majority, of our population voted for Trump to provide us the present display of ignorance and abuse is proof of these systemic flaws. Witness the detail in Jerusalem’s shift to becoming the sacred capital of Judaism, in repudiation of simultaneous functioning as capital of Islamic sects (see “Western Wall”). This contrasts powerfully with Trump’s declaration that extensive sites in southern Utah’s national monuments, with thousands of sacred walls, as well as whole systems of lives, cannot themselves be held sacred to multiple indigenous tribes that have occupied those lands for multiple time periods represented in Jerusalem.

Trump is incapable of comprehending the wild ironies of these and other flaws in his administration thus far, which is precisely why we need regulations, written standards and thoughtful principles, now more than ever.

This must not become a revival of the age of Robber Barons, the sort of chaos desired by Vladimir Putin and his puppet, Trump, for their personal and mob profit. This guy’s got to go, along with the tyranny of the racist secret society that illegitimately rules Utah, declaring all lands to be wastelands, open to industrial obliteration.
