Trumped by Faust

Section:

Steven Berkoff compares Donald Trump to Faust on the day after the man he called “Al Capone crossed with Shylock’s” associate got jailed for six years

Today, just as Dominic Chappell – a fall guy for a man he termed a “cross between Al Capone and Shylock” (Sir Philip Green) in The Steeple Times in September 2016 – was sent down for six years, Steven Berkoff gave an interview to the Guardian.

 

In it, Berkoff quite correctly summed up what is going on with the petulant child Donald Trump and his decision not to concede gracefully in America.

 

Speaking of the situation and of what caused coronavirus also, Berkoff remarked:

 

“Trump is a perfect example of Faust. He’ll do anything to signal his decrepitude to the public. Like Faust, those who crave power, experience and sex sacrifice their souls. We see a lot of this today when people will do anything to achieve a limited thrill. This horrible Covid is the result of this Faustian pact to kill and taste anything to achieve some kind of enlightenment and relief. To me, the hunters who go to Africa and kill just for the thrill are the sickest people on Earth. The wet markets in China and Thailand are full of the horror of slaughtering animals, and now we’re paying for it.”

 

The brilliant Mr. Berkoff is, as ever, spot on and today we once again salute his genius.
