Is the eventual metamorphosis of Mr. West to be a combination of Gore Vidal’s ‘Kalki’ , script writer Bud Schulberg and director Elia Kazan’s ‘A Face in the Crowd’, with a just a bit of Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’?
Mr. West’s fascination with Trump might originate with Mr. West’s own particular self-conception as a Hip-Hop Messiah, in the early stages of his coming to be?

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
