Confused and dangerous times.

Over a century ago, the world drifted into World War I. Its terrible slaughter and tragic consequences are with us even today. Intelligent and experienced leaders inched closer and closer to catastrophe with no understanding of the horrors that could be delivered by modern industrial warfare or the hideous Bolsheviks.

The lessons from that time and the ensuing century have been forgotten, if they were ever learned. With the end of the Cold War with a stupid and inhuman Bolshevik regime the veneer of righteousness that Western policies enjoyed evaporated. Political power was handed to pathetic midgets, frat boys, and a most peculiar and evil class of destroyers. The U.S. dog is now obviously wagged by the Israeli tail and, when it is not pursuing Israeli interests in the Middle East, it is scrambling after a dominant position in the world straight out of the dreams and schemes of Brzezinski, the C.F.R., and the MICC (military-industrial-congressional complex) while mewling about our non-existent “democracy,” our “exceptionalism,” and our status as the “indispensable nation.”

Our vaunted Constitution has been reduced to the status of an embarrassing joke whose “true meaning” is announced to us by our corrupt, runaway judiciary. And our culture has been successfully destroyed by massive, wide-open, uncontrolled third-world immigration invasion and a complicit corporate media establishment. The so-called “immigration debate” in the U.S. is “Exhibit A” for the ineptness, dishonesty, and stupidity of the nation’s elites whose only peers in this world are elected with regularity and enthusiasm by other Western voters with only a tiny number of notable and honorable exceptions. The U.S. media are fascinated with trifles and utter fairy tales about human nature and economic reality.

I agree with Professor Steven Cohen that Vladimir Putin is “the most consequential national leader of the 21st century” yet he is treated like some kind of evil dimwit by U.S. elites and their cringing media. By their telling of it, he’s some kind of Stalin fan boy who wants to bring back the Red Army, the KGB, the Gulag, and state pricing of pencils and chickens.

All the while AntiFa scum rule the streets of America in no way inconvenienced by the American law enforcement establishment at any level. Not to mention outright law enforcement cooperation. And, if you can think of some completely asinine to say about marriage, men, economics, law, race, history, or language, you are guaranteed a respectful hearing in just about every American media outlet.

U.S. gift to Syria.
This is the nation that without whose trillion-dollar investment in pointless global chaos the cities of Syria could not have been reduced to rubble and its people slaughtered or scattered to the winds. It’s the nation that can’t find its ass with both hands in the much-abused nation of Syria yet it manufactures lies and opportunities for confrontation with another major nuclear power while the U.S. presence in that country are contrary to the U.S. Constitution and international law. But who cares about that? Certainly not anyone in the U.S. State Department or Trump White House. Zzzzz.

In 1914, the statesmen and rulers of Europe operated in an environment that, in comparison to current U.S. realities, was the essence of rationality. If they couldn’t keep the world from conflagration, what is the likelihood that U.S. “leadership” will not both engineer (1) its own economic and cultural collapse and (2) something far worse than that first European civil war of a century ago. The collective wisdom of the most educated and intelligent people of the United States has failed to avert the cultural and economic catastrophe that is about to break upon us. And in contrast to Putin we have a leader with little more to offer than a visceral (and welcome) patriotism (hitherto in very short supply) and an excellent sense that America's economic domestic and international policies have more often than not ended up with ordinary Americans holding the short end of the stick. God bless Mr. Trump but more than anything else we need leaders of the caliber of Putin and Mr. Orban in Hungary.

Putin – and Bashar al-Assad – stand out as examples of decent and rational leadership. For all the rest, its hard to find leaders in the world who deserve our respect and who respect common sense. The U.S., in particular, has lost what moral authority it may have had from the era of the Cold War and it is playing a key role in ensuring that reckless, stupid, warlike policies are pursued at every opportunity to vindicate not one vital American interest. Not one.

America has become a dangerous and unfunny joke and the next chapter in world history will not be edifying. The end of history? It is to laugh.

Somewhat bleak, but we probably are within the collapse of Western Society by the minds and hands of our own people. This disease of facile minds is spreading to Australia and to New Zealand now. People like Bill Warner say that a dark age will follow as Europe is conquered by Islam, and the West collapses by spiritual suicide. Its not till I became nearly old that I realised hoe incredibly stupid we are.

It has taken me a long time to wake up too. The Cold War needed to be fought but it diverted attention from an examination of what got started under FDR and earlier with the progressives and socialists. The Constitution was just gutted, ultra leftism took root and flourished, immigration was revealed as the weapon against whites that it is, and globalism ate out the vitals of our economy.

WWII, China's going red, Yalta, the concealment of the Soviet and Chinese holocausts and communist penetration of America, the attack on the Liberty, AIPAC's arrogance, the futility of our civil rights experiment, and utter corruption of our vaunted "democracy" we point to around the world more and more are revealed as the symptoms of decline that they are.

Liberalism itself has been our enemy as it relentlessly pushed equality and mindless, limitless expansion of the franchise. As a wise person observed, the problems of liberalism will only be solved by illiberal methods.

Warner's quite right. What us astonishing is the unwillingness of Western voters to see what has happened and what WILL happen. Stupidity explains it but it's so bad there seems to be some initial premise that grips minds in a vice. The aforementioned liberalism, I suppose. Better to die than be thought unfair or bigoted????

Much of what you say is true. However, you seem to ignore the threat of Islam. I see Israel as an ally in that particular war, and Pres. Trump at least trying in some way to come to grip with it with a stronger military presence (with sometimes mistaken attacks) and his programs on immigration. Much as we would like otherwise we cannot ignore the Middle East, which brought us 9/11. Much of our problems there were due to the ineptness of Bush II.
