and, referenced within the above, another slightly older “essay on Trump’s rise”. I think I actually linked to this one before, but here it is again. Sleeper left some sharp edges in there. Of the two links, the second has more interesting analysis, but it is long to the point of losing coherence a bit – you’ve been warned.
