Fintan O’Toole is a historian, literary critic, author, and essayist whose work has appeared in The New York Review of Books, The Irish Times, The Guardian, and other leading publications. O'Toole is the author of many books including his most recent The Politics of Pain: Postwar England and the Rise of Nationalism.
In a series of recent essays O'Toole has, with rapier sharp devastating prose, described Trump's America as being pitiful and pathetic where the pandemic only further exposed the societal and institutional rot that was already long present in the country.
Fintan O'Toole reflects on the end of American empire, the decline of the country's democracy, and abdication of its preeminent global leadership role. He also explains the appeal of Donald Trump the authoritarian con man to his political cult members and the power of their collective pandemic death cult.
