[Marxism] "I am part of the resistance"... from the inside

This article, written by a bureaucrat inside the Trump administration,
really shows the grip the mainstream of the capitalist class still has. It
shows that Trump will still have a ways to go to institute pure one-man
rule. Most important, it dispels the silly notion of the "deep state". As
the writer says, ""This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s
the work of the steady state." Or, in other words, of the capitalist state.

"*The Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed
essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in
the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would
be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay
anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our
readers. We invite you to submit a question about the essay or our vetting
process **here*

"President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a
modern American leader.

It’s not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is
bitterly divided over Mr. Trump’s leadership. Or even that his party might
well lose the House to an opposition hellbent on his downfall.

The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior
officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to
frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations."
