Observations on a Sunday Night – Yeats Again

“Turning and turning in the widening gyre  

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere  

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst  

Are full of passionate intensity.


from The Second Coming by William Butler Yeats


Yeats was onto something all those years ago.  Russia and China are starting to cut the strings that attach themselves to the global entity.  It appears there will be other options to the woke organizing model.  Nationalist sensibilities and more traditional societal structures than the atomized Facebook model are beginning to assert itself outside the control of the US and Europe.  We may have a reached a tipping point with the sanctions against Russia and the reaction of Chinese.  The globalist project may have bitten off much more than they can chew.

First the collapse of Afghanistan.  Watching the debacle and hearing the reactions of the Left, confirms that their priority was turning a primitive Islamic state into an LGBTQ vacation destination.  They had no idea how impossible their vision of Afghanistan was.  Only American riflemen permitted the center of Kabul to pretend that the Taliban weren’t in control of more than half the country already.  And seeing the rout occur as it did; with desperate Afghanis plunging to their deaths from the wheels of departing military transport aircraft, suicide bombers murdering US servicemen and in misdirected and impotent retaliation, an American cruise missile killing an innocent Afghan family; demonstrated the delusional mindset of the globalists running this operation and their incompetence.

Second, the crashing of the American economy into stagflation.  The greens’ war against fossil fuels has ignited runaway inflation and this along with the other domestic crises caused by Leftist initiatives like the “defund the police” movement have alienated the voting population in a convincing manner.  The likelihood of a recession is already panicking Wall Street.  And the prospect of this crisis stretching out until 2025 may finally overcome even the stupidest American’s ability to believe in idiocy.

And finally, the CIA’s color revolution in the Ukraine and Biden’s decision to go to the mat against Putin with draconian sanctions may be the straw that finally breaks the camel’s back and forces China and Russia to escape from the American dollar’s stranglehold on global economic activity.  If China begins to decouple its currency from the dollar, we may begin to see the true end of America’s economic primacy.

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold.”  The incompetence of our globalist elites will be their downfall.  They espouse positions that are incompatible with a healthy society.  They are driving our civilization to ruin and in a hurry.  The only silver lining to this situation is that some dissident countries like Hungary and Poland may escape the toxic effects of the globalist entity and survive.  How they will align themselves with Russia and China and any other non-woke countries is an important question for the future.  Wouldn’t it be a strange circumstance if Russia and China, the former premier communist despotic regimes led the way to a league of independent nations that escape from the globalist prison house of nations.

“Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.”  That Yeats guy was a prophet.  I’ll use him repeatedly in the future.
