It is pretty accurate, IMHO, to say that the planet is in a state of chaos, both environmentally and socially. See France’s Nuit Debout youth’s revolution, the Middle East, Latin America…to the USA. The malaise is global, and so is its origin: globalism.
It’s not just me saying it. As I have discussed on this blog, it is the globalists themselves who have diagnosed the problem. Our current presidential elections crisis (both parties are being shaken by popular anger), according to globalist Larry Sanders, is evidence that the success of globalism has peaked, and is high noon time for the elite to step back and re-think how to cope with the consequences of its success if they want to have more of it:
This [globalization] has proved more successful than could reasonably have been hoped.
…Elites can continue pursuing and defending [global] integration, hoping to win sufficient popular support — but, on the evidence of the US presidential campaign and the Brexit debate, this strategy may have run its course.
…And they see the disintegration that accompanies global integration, as communities suffer when big employers lose to foreign competitors.
…The core of the revolt against globalintegration, though, is not ignorance. It is a sense, not wholly unwarranted, that it is a project carried out by elites for elites with little consideration for the interests of ordinary people — who see the globalisation agenda as being set by big companies playing off one country against another.
…The emphasis can shift from promoting integration to managing its consequences.
This is likely to result in a hiatus in new global integration
…efforts to preserve what is in place while relying on technology and growth in the developing world to drive further integration.
The globalists have their think-tanks to give them the information/data needed to assess, in the words of former mayor of NY Ed Koch, “how am I doing?”. They have been talking, among themselves only, about the impact of globalism on human beings, culture and society at larger since at least 1970 when they were beginning to carry out their global take-over of our lives. We, however, base our political decisions on the facts given to us by FoxNews, CNN…We certainly don’t have time for heavy thinking after a hard work day. If we let them, they will ‘fix’ the problem for us.
We need to get off the two-party system, educate ourselves about the nature of globalism and how it is changing our society, personalities and even how we perceive reality.
We need an organization where fighting globalism is the first point in the platform, then the environment, animal rights, children and women’s rights, the right to work, health services…all of them on one platform.
Sit there peacefully if you think you can get that from the duopoly, ’cause you’re gonna get tired of waiting on your feet for it to deliver. They will give you what they want and you will have to love it.
Until then, Hillary is our only option in these elections.
