Holinshed's Chronicles

There's an iconic scene in an early Bergman film in which two boys sitting in the back seat of a car get into an argument over the existence of God. Ignited by Trump's felony conviction two adults will now get into a shouting match not in the backseat of a car but rather across two sides of a barricade separating demonstrators in front of the Supreme Court through whose auspices the Republicans are vowing to appeal the recent conviction. Considering the composition of the current court one can be sure there will be a watershed ruling against regicide which will one day in the past find its way into the Chronicles of Holinshed. Trump has yet to be stopped. Will he succeed in turning back the hands of time?
