I thought this very interesting and I think those of us occupied by immigration and foreign relations would benefit from reading this.
It doesn’t necessarily tell us what we don’t already know, but, it is from a perspective which may be different than we’re familiar with.
As a preface, I have to say I don’t necessarily agree with all of the delineations the author made. Further, in spite of it being a fairly lengthy piece, there is context which is missing from the article.
It is of such a length I cannot replicate it here. Still, it’s a worthwhile read.
The author puts things in an American perspective. This is fine because the target audience is American. However, it leaves the impression this is uniquely American thought. It isn’t. It’s global and we can see each faction working throughout the world, today.
Boiled down, there are two competing thoughts which transcend the left/right paradigm. It mostly concerns itself with foreign affairs and the conduct of a nation in such regards. In such regards, there is little or no difference between, say …. Merkel and Obama. They are both globalists. That is to say, they put what they believe to be the interests of the globe above the interests of the people of their nation. That their beliefs are constantly and consistently shown to be wrong is of no importance to them, as they rarely, if ever, address reality. Indeed, most globalists out-rightly reject reality. They have a great disdain for empiricism.
I believe the militaristic, and sadistic nature of globalists rend from the fact that reality rejects their sophist nature. They are children who lash out when reality rejects their notions. Unfortunately, globalists are power seekers. In their unfortunate condition, they seek power as an effort to contort and change reality. Those who seek power, most often gain power more than, and over those who do not seek power. This is why we’re stuck with the world leaders we have today. ….. Well, this is why we allow the people whose interests are of the globalists to place their pawns where they are today. Obama can’t think himself out of a shoebox, much less gain position of power without someone else placing him there. To be sure, he’s a globalist, but, simply, a simple one.
At this point, I’m suppose to tie up this post with something profound and simplistically true. But, there’s nothing more to add at this point. The point of this post is to provide a background and thinking point. …. and talking point.
Well, as a PS, contrast the linked piece, which is, in a rather lengthy way, a Cruz ad vs this most obvious Trump ad provided by Breitbart ….
Oh, yeh, there’s a debate tonight.
