The world is a global village was the rallying cry of the early Nineteen Eighties when people imagined by design a world the size of a huge city, cosmopolitan and populous, with porous borders.
What no one foresaw was how the scenario would play out, not understanding we would become nondescript citizens of the world, anonymous, replaceable and alienated.
It started with invasions and proxy wars in the Middle East by the U.S. and allies in countries such as Iraqi, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria and snowballed from there.
The Year 2015 saw the exodus of migrants from Middle Eastern and North African Countries ravaged by war to Europe where the continent’s gates were pried open by the progressive migration policies of Angela Merkel and the European Union in the start to what was to become the refugee crisis.
In addition, the rise of the Islamic hardline terrorist group ISIS with its bombing campaigns in the Middle East exacerbated the refugee crises.
If the geopolitical goal of the ‘creators’ of ISIS was to moderate the majority Sunni Middle East as suggested, then conversely it was to radicalize the west, with terrorist attacks beginning in Europe not long after.
The United States own Central American refugee crisis begun in 2017, and just like in Europe, continues to this day.
Globalism vs Nationalism
The fight is a straightforward one between globalism and national sovereignty; in essence another version of the culture wars envisioned by Samuel Huntington’s theory of the Clash of Civilizations.
This was inevitable given the fact a large number of culturally disparate refugees cannot be dumped on host populations without the expectation to assimilate, the word itself now thought to have discriminatory overtones.
An article in the Guardian some time ago addressed the British language-bias towards English, with the author slamming it as imperialistic and discriminatory.
Which was bad enough, but the comments section was even worse, rife with anti-white male, Anglophobic and anti-west sentiments.
The thing is we have lost base with the difference between the familial and the foreign and the separate obligations we have to each.
This distinction eroded by tolerance to such an extent we can no longer spot the difference between legitimate immigration and soft invasion.
At this point civilization has imploded and only its infrastructure remains in place.
Only one thing keeps this pro-mass migration mind-set alive, the irrational hatred of cultural heritage by alienated individuals who are attracted to political parties that reinforce their sense of alienation in perpetuity.
Ideologues tend to fabricate ideas to disconnect from uncomfortable reality instead of using ideas to identify and understand reality.
Global Issues, continuing
That provocative question of whether to leave the European Union or stay has divided the British like no other issue in the last fifty years.
Brexit, representing those who wish to opt out and preserve national sovereignty versus those opposed who support globalism and wish to remain in the European Union is the fight of our times.
A few years following the successful yes vote for Brexit in a referendum, the British are no closer to leaving with judges taking a leaf out of the Americans book by frustrating the will of the people.
An American Political Coup in the Offing
The National/Globalist divide is the worst in the United States with a deep chasm between conservative Republicans on the one hand and Republicans in name only and Democrats of all stripes on the other.
The latest impeachment initiative against Donald Trump by Democrats over Ukraine aggravates the political climate, with news reported by Independent media that a directive dated October 3, sees the deployment of the US Marine Corps reserve units for an emergency within the US citing ‘threats to the Homeland’
With the Inspector General’s FISA report released in a couple of weeks are Dems likely to use impeachment proceedings against Trump as a smokescreen?
Some no doubt are afraid of being implicated by the FISA report so their idea is to remove Trump, even to arrest him, before they can be arrested?
Is trouble just around the corner?
The saga continues ……..
Where to From Here
Perhaps it is time for a word from elite insider George Orwell at this point.
The old civilizations were founded on love and justice, ours is founded upon hatred.
There will be no emotions except fear, rage triumph and self-abasement-everything else we will destroy.
There will be no love except the love of Big Brother.
There will be no distinction between beauty and ugliness.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face-forever.
Alternatively, how about a world like the one predicted by Aldous Huxley where everyone belongs to everyone else with no higher inspiration?
Talk about grim…….and grimmer
