The Final Folly of the Western World
Paul Craig Roberts
The victory over President Trump of the military/security complex has condemned the United States and its European, Canadian, Australian, and Japanese empire to irreversible decline. Trump’s intention to “normalize relations with Russia” was perceived by the powerful military/security complex, about which both President Eisenhower and President John F. Kennedy warned, as a threat to its budget, power, and primacy. Thus was launched by the CIA and FBI the long and ongoing era of false charges against an American President, both in office and out, by the security services of the United States.
The consequence is that the world is moving away from our influence, departing the dollar-dominated financial system, and adhering to a rule of law instead of Washington’s self-serving rules.
The consequences for the Western world will be currency decline, inflation and lower living standards, energy scarcity, and social decay from unassimilated masses of immigrant-invaders whom the Western world lacks the self-belief to repel.
Ruinous war might also be a consequence with disastrous results for the West whose weapons systems are inferior to those of Russia and whose armies are demoralized by “diversity promotions” and anti-white indoctrination.
Russian President Putin has described the neoconservative ambition of American hegemony as “insane.” Putin has taken the measure of the West:
“Any ideology of superiority is by its nature disgusting, criminal and deadly. The globalist elites keep insisting on their exceptionalism; they pit people against each other, split societies, provoke bloody conflicts and coups, sow hatred, Russophobia and aggressive nationalism, destroy traditional family values that make humans human.”
Putin describes Washington’s “rule-based order” as “a system of robbery, violence and suppression on the international stage.”
Contrary to the interests of Americans, Russians, Chinese and the rest of the world, the US military/security complex and their neoconservative henchmen have institutionalized the West as the enemy of the rest of the world. The consequences for America and its empire will be disastrous.
