After reviewing Obama’s 2014 State of the Union address (SOTU), the 1954 novel Lord of the Flies comes to mind. You know the one – William Golding’s savage depiction of a group of youths stranded on an uninhabited island, attempting to govern themselves, before eventually descending into utter chaos without rule or law.
As the story evolves, the boys turn on each other, all the while feeling haunted by some unknown Beast and through the offering of a sow’s head, frozen with a dark grimacing grin, they look to appease the Beast. Symbolically, the head was said to be a psychical embodiment of ‘Beelzebub’ and is known as ‘Lord of the Flies’.
Similarly, the American people have also been haunted – forced to accept a completely unaccountable government, fraudulent debt that isn’t theirs, endless wars, the lack of jobs, a shrinking middle class and a narcissistic president operating for the global elite, with a one size fits all communist vision.
