I feel like I am watching a morality play

on a par with something like Merchant of Venice, Faust, Richard III, or MacBeth. I sure hope so.

1. Except that this is real life right now!

Your examples are history and quite a bit of fiction.

This is probably an existential battle for the United States of America.

2. A battle for ethical morality

The ethics of how do we live together in peace and be good caretakers of this planet? The ethics of how do we work together for the benefit of all sentient beings, not just a few greedy mobster oligarchs. The morality of how the karma of greed, hatred, and ignorance eventually ripens into bitter fruit.

A drama does not need to be historically true to convey a moral truth.
