After the Soviet Union folded its tent, George H.W. Bush famously talked about a “new world order.” Clinton and W. both allowed this new project to feed off the power of the United States until it was supposed to replace it with a global alliance of elites who floated above the nationalist concerns of the proles and harvested the fruits of the labor of whatever market would provide them at the lowest price; India, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma and possibly the far side of the moon at some point in the future. And in doing this they crushed the working-class citizens of the United States. And now they’re doing the same to the middle class too. But that’s unimportant. A new managerial class is being imported into the United States to replace Americans as the white-collar servants of the managerial class. And this imported help will work at a discount too. So, it’s a win-win for the elites. They’ve gotten rid of those pesky Americans with their outdated ideas of patriotism and freedom and replaced them with compliant foreigners who also work cheap.
Lately the proles have started to revolt. They elected Trump and demanded Brexit. But happily, order has been restored. The 2020 election was enhanced (rigged) and the FBI is busy arresting anyone who protested against it. Even the Canadians have resorted to gestapo tactics when their working-class people protested the vaccine mandates.
But a funny thing happened on the way to this New World Order. The elites have stepped on so many people that they may have splintered their own coalition of the aggrieved. The afro-centric nature of the last couple of years of the resistance have stepped on the toes of several of the other constituencies. The Latino and Asian populations are seeing their concerns ignored when they compete with how Black Lives Matters sees the priorities. And feminists, especially lesbians, are outraged at how “trans-women” are being given rights and privileges that trample on female concerns.
The traditional religious beliefs in many ethnic groups, especially Latino groups are very unhappy with the homosexual agenda especially as it is being taught to their children. And many communities including affluent whites are outraged at the inclusion of critical race theory (CRT) in the K-12 school curriculum. And finally, going along with the BLM problems everyone living in cities are horrified by the elimination of effective policing in their neighborhoods. Crime is epidemic and district attorneys refuse to prosecute almost any crimes committed in their urban jurisdictions to somehow compensate for alleged past inequities in black arrests and incarceration.
All these problems are now adding to the revolt against COVID mandates and the anger at double digit inflation and supply chain disruptions. The citizenry of the United States (and other western countries) is terribly angry at the feckless behavior of their elite masters and they want change.
And now, just when things look like they couldn’t get worse the geniuses at NATO manage to piss off Vladimir Putin to the extent that he was willing to invade the Ukraine. And this instability that will rock the financial markets and send the price of oil through the roof provides the final proof needed to assure the world that the leaders of the New World Order are idiots. What they’ve managed to do is expose their enterprise as a sham. They whittled away the strength and legitimacy of the American military and now it no longer provides the club they formerly depended on to force the other nations to follow their rules. Russia and China and maybe soon Iran and Turkey will start to enforce their own rules in their neighborhoods. Allies like Japan, South Korea and Germany will have to fend for themselves and look for other partners to provide security in their neighborhoods.
This loss of superpower status is going to have practical, negative effects on American companies and citizens. Our safety abroad will decrease. Our money will become less valuable. The best and brightest will consider other countries as possible homes for themselves and their enterprises. And there will be more groups interested in challenging our military capability, especially in asymmetric engagements (guerilla tactics). And our primary adversaries will be looking for opportunities to weaken us further.
It’s too soon to be talking about the end of globalism but things seem to be picking up steam. Possibly we may be reaching a tipping point at which a clear majority of the American public turns against the globalist project and demands a return to an America First agenda. Of course, the Left may just work harder at perpetrating voting fraud. And the Republican establishment is working overtime to rally the public for whatever new war the neocons can think up. But it is possible that this confluence of horrible news and horrible policies might tip things beyond the control of the Uniparty. I guess I’m an idealist. Fingers crossed.
