The Trump Phenomenon and the emergence of a New World Order

by Yash Tandon

President Trump’s electoral victory is a good reason to reflect on a whole range of bigger issues that have been crowded out by the ear-splitting anti-Trump campaigns in America and liberal-left circles in Europe. The hysteria, no doubt, is a passing phenomenon. Some diehards will continue, but the rest will settle down to the demands of routine existence. Trump is a reality firmly embedded in the American political landscape. Yash Tandon uses the Trump Phenomenon as an “emblematic peg” to raise bigger issues of civilizational shift, and the strategy and tactics of struggle by peoples of the global North as well those of the global South.
