Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Humanity is the reward for honesty in this picaresque tale, and one's desire to become human its prerequisite.

What I'm saying is, if punishment and redemption were actually fit to the 'boy' protagonist, Trump would renounce his lying ways, becoming human.

Understably, one may not expect redemption. The world has just, in the space of one year, witness lengthy, maudlin eulogies for two notorious lying liars of the 'free' world.

So let's tack. I nominate, ALEX in A Clockwork Orange for the more appropriate, if unsatisfying allegory of 'redemptive justice' for Trump's retirement.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

The problem with these proposals is that they assume that the Bambi punishment will have the desired effect. It's just as possible that the poacher, seeing Bambi's mother being killed, will think "good shot". I'll let you draw your own conclusions about Trump and the rape scene. Trump would probably love seeing Pinocchio killing the cricket with his hammer - except that Disney cut that episode from the movie.
