lead characters in today’s political play–archetypically

  Trump lanced the princes of finance with rhetoric so strong it crossed the line into bigotry.  At the same time, he’s offering them a dream set of bank-friendly public policies.    http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2016/11/9/13573294/donald-trump-financial-regulation

11-9-16   Trump’s victory is what many bankers wanted.  As recently as last month, 52% of bankers in a recent poll by American Banker said Trump would be a better choice for the banking industry than Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, who received just 20% of support.

Yet such a view appears to be more an act of faith rather than based on Trump’s banking policy positions, some of which are contradictory and all of which are vague.

During the campaign, he’s vacillated between populist views like calling for the return of Glass-Steagall and more traditional conservative ones like favoring a reduction in regulation.  It makes it hard to gauge his real agenda, observers said.

“Probably the most important thing to say is that Trump clearly has two camps of economic advisers,” said J.W. Verret, a professor of banking law at Scalia Law School. “He has the populist camp and he has the Reagan conservative camp.

“On tax policy the Reagan conservatives have mostly won.  On trade policy, the populists have clearly won.  I don’t know which camp he would listen to on banking regulation and that is the big question mark,” said Verret.  http://www.americanbanker.com/news/law-regulation/what-a-trump-victory-means-for-bankers-1092014-1.html

The Lord of the Rings embodies an “inherent morality,”[1] as Tolkien calls it…

Gollum is, by nature, ambivalent.  He is the shadow, or personal unconscious, and we will deal with him first….But the most effective mediator between the ordinary reader and “whole” world of Middle-earth, the character who is in the end closest to ourselves and who also must return to ordinary life, is Sam Gamgee.  Sam has become, in the process of the story, Samwise, but he is less removed from ourselves than Frodo or the other characters (Samwise then is symbolically typical personal consciousness, and rather a foil to heroic, inspired or superconscious Frodo who carries the hardest job of the three characters–dealing with the ring).  http://www.crosscurrents.org/tolkien.htm

–parenthetic comments above by R.   Who might Samwise be in today’s times?  I think the non-big city vote that went for Trump does indeed represent basic Samwise.  If one observes closely US Justice Dept. chief Lynch one might see that either she &/or her boss is a Gollum type.  The quest to deal with the ring of power properly is the challenge to Trump or anyone who would be heroic today.    -R, Mt.

Yajna, sacrifice, means penance, deep study and the practice of meditation on Aum.

Penance is patience or evenmindedness in all conditions (equanimity amidst the essential dualities of maya–cold and heat, pain and pleasure, etc.).

Deep study consists of reading or hearing spiritual truth, pondering it and forming a definite conception of it.

(Meditation on) pranava–the divine sound of Aum–is the only way to Brahman (Spirit), salvation.                     -Yukteswar:  Divine Science, 8th ed., 1990, p. 55
