The Rule of the Jester King

Abstract

The current events witnessed with the election of Donald Trump are so bizarre and extraordinary that framing the narrative as a fairy story with magic spells, evil wizards, and demon hordes seems to encapsulate those events more than any analysis of fact. This paper is set in the Great Kingdom of Cemaria and chronicles the rise of the Jester king to power using Inayatullah’s futures triangle. Posed as dreams of the royal fortune teller four scenarios are then developed ranging from the end of life on earth through to the establishment of a whole new paradigm of humanely based organisation. Keywords: Donald Trump, Fairy Story, Futures Triangle, Scenarios, Archetype
