On Nationalism vs Globalism

This is in response to Matt Bai’s article, “You can oppose Trump’s nationalism.  But don’t sneer at it.”

There’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with nationalism, Matt Bai.  Absolutely NOTHING at all.

Virginia, Delaware, and Georgia are to the United States of America as Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England are to the United Kingdom and Bremen, Hamburg, and Saxony are to Germany.

The U.S. is a union. The E.U. is a super-union, twice removed from its original member states.

Unions are ok, provided they retain strong local order. The U.S. Constitution reserves most of the powers to the States and to the People, respectively. Says so right there in our Constitution and our 9th and 10th Amendments.

The EU, however, absorbed more power than it should have, with significant recent problems where blithering idiots at the EU level were saying, “Yeah! Sure! Find refuge here!” only to meet with individual states saying, “Uh, no.” Good for you, Poland and the others!!!

Globalism, the complete erasure of local/municipality, county, state, union, and super-union lines is a VERY BAD IDEA. We are NOT all the same, and we can NOT “all just get along.” That’s NOT the way human nature works and any attempt towards this in our current stage of development would absolutely be a DISASTER.

Perhaps in another 300 to 500 years, after we’ve worked out some of those show-stopping differences, such as the one where Islam wants to conquer all, killing the infidel if they refuse and the rest of us would like Islam to go to Hell.

As I began, there’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with nationalism, Matt Bai.  Absolutely NOTHING at all.

There most certainly is, however, a great deal wrong with attempts to erase the fundamental nature of human ties that have bound society throughout our history and even pre-history.  We have made great advances and will undoubtedly make many more, in due time.

Rushing those advances, however, has almost always lead to arrogance, violence, and bloodshed.  In fact, nearly every war on our planet began with too rapid a shift between smaller units of identity and larger ones.  In fact, “How globalism failed, according to a globalist,” by Jerrod A. Laber is a very good hint at some of the dangers.

No, Matt Bai, globalism is not a cure for our ills, not in the least.  Rather, slow and steady maturation of society and the human condition is the only way to go.

Check back with me in half a millennia, there, sport.

Who is Best at Running a Country? Patriots and Businessmen vs Lawyers and Career Politicians

When it comes to running a country well, you need two things:

Patriots:  These people have their priorities in order:  God, Country, and Family.  They also aren’t afraid to back down from a running the countryfight.  In fact, if you attack one or more of their priorities, a fight is exactly what you’ll get.  Unlike Demoncraps and Libturds (Democrats and Liberals), Patriots will not compromise on essential principles, nor are they in the game just for themselves.

Without Patriots, the United States of America would never have been created, nor would we have survived, much less thrived as a country.

Businessmen:  These folks understand the hard, cold realities of business, where companies don’t have the luxury of raising prices running the countrywithout competition (i.e. raising taxes) every time they need to cover their ineptitude.  Instead, they learn, often the hard way, to get it right.  In big business, you don’t just balance budgets. You’re always looking for ways to do things better, smarter, and cheaper, because that’s what it takes to stay in business and remain competitive with the ever-innovative competition.

Trump’s advantage over Hillary is two-fold:  First, he’s a LOT smarter than Obama, whereas Hillary is probably on par with Valerie JarrettObama.  Valerie Jarrett is just plain wrong on that point.  Obama is an idealistic imbecile.  The fact that Jarrett sees him as “brilliant” doesn’t say much about Jarrett.  Do we really need four years of the same?  Should we risk eight?  Yeah, I don’t think so!

Second, when Patriots and Businessmen run our country, we thrive. We prosper.  When Lawyers and Career Politicians run our country, they run it into the ground because they haven’t the slightest clue as to how to run a country.

running the country

Have you ever examined what’s on the curricula of most political science degrees?  This is the most common degree obtained by both lawyers and politicians before going to law school or entering politics.  It’s ridiculous!  It’s all but totally void of common business functions such economics, accounting, and finance, much less any technological aspect such as math, physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering.

Lacking the proper education, most lawyers and career politicians are clueless.  They know how to write law, but they don’t know running the countrywhat laws should be written.  They know how to politic their way up through the political system, but when it comes to making decisions that actually benefit society, they are literally without a clue, and are often driven by the ridiculous liberal propaganda, which is little more than a retread of the Communist Manifesto, itself craft by a blithering idiot and ignorant idealist named Marx who never once found any modicum of success in his own life.

That’s a valid source for how to run a country?  I think not!  Any historian could tell you that!

Sadly, not only do we have such lawyers and career politicians embedded throughout our government, but we also have far to running the countrymany ignorant voters who simply never learned why such policies are bad, no matter how good they sound.  As a result, these voters keep reelecting the blithering idiots back into office.

That’s no way to run a country, people.  Come on – wise up!
