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.
