Are We on the Brink of a New Dark Ages?

Public Policy

The foreign policy of a progressive US administration could entail a fanatical pursuit of race-based “intersectionality” policies, similar to the proletarian internationalism of yesteryear. If US foreign policy were in fact composed of such policies, many countries would consider China the lesser of two evils. A world dominated by a progressive US on the one hand and communist China on the other could devolve into a new Dark Ages.

America is in turmoil. Some believe it is in decline. Few argue whether the decline is temporary or permanent. Almost everyone agrees that Pax Americana, the post-WWII order, and the unipolar world created by the collapse of the Soviet Union are gone forever.

Naturally, everyone wants to know the contours of the world order ahead of us. Students of history look for answers in the not so distant past. The Cold War, which went on for over four decades, contained many periods that can be called upon to justify almost any historical parallel, but the US-USSR confrontation was not unique. History offers many other relatively recent examples of global conflict, though they were not generally cast as polar battles between good and evil in the manner of the Cold War.

The world order prior to WWI was not black and white. It was gray. Several empires, real and artificial, were jockeying for world supremacy: Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Russia, Austro-Hungary, and a few smaller ones. None was particularly peace-loving. However, all were at some stage of development as a liberal democracy. Some, like Britain, were well advanced, while others, like Russia, were far behind. None was purely evil and genocidal. This state of affairs more or less defined European history from the Middle Ages through the Treaty of Westphalia.

The 1930s presented an unprecedented situation. In the later years of that decade, Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia created a bipolar world in which both entities had similarly nefarious intentions. Between the Munich Peace Conference and the Battle of Moscow, few in the world dismissed out of hand the idea that evil could be the uncontested ruler of the world. For Europe, that indeed occurred for the duration of the war. Eventually, part of the continent was liberated. It, along with the rest of the freedom-loving world, was spared by the intervention of the US, which emerged as the new superpower.

The US is now in crisis. The place once occupied by the Soviet Union is now held by China. The new rivalry might superficially resemble the old one, specifically the early period of the Cold War when it looked as though the Soviet Union was getting the upper hand in both science (with the success of Sputnik) and global popularity (via effective propaganda). But there is another alternative. What if, based on the ascendance of the progressive Left in the US and its possible takeover of the Democratic Party, the struggle is not going to be a fight of democracy against despotism? What if the US is in fact moving toward the Chinese model, where totalitarian ideology coexists with tightly controlled private enterprise?

Anyone working for a large US company has experienced artifacts of state-based dogmatic ideology: meetings in support of political causes, dispatches from executives calling for revolutionary fervor, and discussions with colleagues where dissent is a fireable offense. The current tendencies of the economy toward monopolization and capital concentration, coupled with the combined effects of the internet and the coronavirus pandemic, have created an environment in which much of the US population may be captured by this shift toward ideological conformity.

The foreign policy of the state may well follow the same trend, possibly in a fanatical pursuit of race-based “intersectionality” policies similar to the proletarian internationalism of yesteryear. In those circumstances, one can easily imagine a foreign policy in which the US extends trade agreements only to countries with racially diverse governments. Affirmative action would be applied to the international stage: for NATO to exist, it would have to accept a few African and more Muslim countries to reflect the world population. Allies and foes alike would be forced to accept unlimited numbers of refugees regardless of their ability to absorb them. The main pillar of this new foreign policy approach would be the erasure of borders and the cancellation, to use the popular term, of the nation state.

If this did in fact become US foreign policy, many countries would likely consider China the lesser of two evils. The Chinese have made clear that they are not after political subjugation (except in the cases of Taiwan and Hong Kong). In its relations with the rest of the world, Beijing wants to recreate the old empire, in which Chinese superiority is recognized but the vassals are allowed to run their estates as they please.

The Communist Party is the vehicle with which to deliver the most successful form of Chinese imperialism. It no longer contains any communist content and has no desire to project itself abroad. American progressives, by contrast, want the entire world to reflect their ideological worldview. They give only two choices: join in or become outcasts.

With the progressive US and communist China ruling supreme, the world will enter a new Dark Ages. Both systems, unless checked by powerful liberal democracies, will eventually extinguish all vestiges of liberty and private enterprise. We must act vigorously to prevent this grim scenario from becoming reality.

    The 1930s presented an unprecedented situation. In the later years of that decade, Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia created a bipolar world in which both entities had similarly nefarious intentions. Between the Munich Peace Conference and the Battle of Moscow, few in the world dismissed out of hand the idea that evil could be the uncontested ruler of the world. For Europe, that indeed occurred for the duration of the war. Eventually, part of the continent was liberated. It, along with the rest of the freedom-loving world, was spared by the intervention of the US, which emerged as the new superpower.

    This kind of BS is going to be rewritten soon.

    The only ones with nefarious intentions were the USSR and USA.

    “the intervention of the US, which emerged as the new superpower.”

    Yeah, right. The US empire is an “accidental empire” my foot.

    In reality the US and USSR conspired in the thirties to destroy Europe. And they had Winston Churchill as the tool at their disposal to get the war in Europe started.

    And behind it all was international Jewry, that owned both the US and USSR, as well as the Churchill war party:

    The West is burnt toast. The East is new bread. THAT is the future.

    BTW: Sinophobes, China is NOT communist. A modern blend of socialist and capitalist, just like Amerika. You need some real education and not the brainwashing propaganda you are fed 24/7/365.

    Definition of communism

    1a : a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed
    b : a theory advocating elimination of private property

    There is private property in China and there are all levels of wealth and poverty. Communis5t China has not existed for at least 30 years, since Mao. Amerikans are so dumbed down and brainwashed, they will believe anything their masters tell them. “1984” is Amerika. And well deserved!

    “POLITICS“Not the Same Joe”: Former Stenographer Says Biden’s Cognitive Ability Has Declined Significantly”
    https://summit.news/2020/09/08/not-the-same-joe-bidens-former-stenographer-says-bidens-cognitive-ability-has-declined-significantly/

    “Joe Biden’s former White House stenographer says the presidential candidate’s cognitive functioning and speaking ability has deteriorated significantly in the last few years. Speaking to the Washington Free Beacon, Mike McCormick, who worked as a White House stenographer for 15 years and with Biden from 2011 to 2017, said the presidential candidate is “not the same Joe Biden.” “He’s lost a step and he doesn’t seem to have the same mental acuity as he did four years ago,” said McCormick. “He doesn’t have the energy, he doesn’t have the pace of his speaking…he’s a different guy,” he added. McCormick noted that Biden seems to get “lost” during interviews and has also lost his ability to smoothly go off script and connect naturally with his audience. “He’d just make a big joke out of it, and go straight from the hip. And notice, he’s not doing that anymore,” he said. “He read that [Democratic National Committee speech] verbatim … it’s not Joe Biden anymore.”

    “Royal Navy aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth could set out on its first mission with more American than British planes on board”

    The majority of the English prefer Anglo over Euro-club membership. Pity for them that social order in Batman-USA is melting away behind their backs. Most people didn’t see the fall of the Berlin Wall and demise of the USSR coming. Likewise they will only wake up to the new reality if they are in the middle of it. England could become a sort of XXL Albania, completely isolated and impoverished, with no allies.

    Uber-Jew Sugar correctly fears that the British population is liking the lock-down a little too much and is very reluctant to pick-up the rat-race in the economy again, complete with commuting, boring office-life, meetings and what not.

    Tybring-Gjedde, in his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, said the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between Israel and the UAE. “As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,” he wrote.

    US Army vet says he was used as a ‘prop’ in anti-Trump ‘propaganda’

    “EXCLUSIVE: One U.S. wounded veteran is speaking out against his image being used across all social media platforms to further perpetuate a story he believes is false and made up by Democrats for political gain. “I’m just so irritated that they put my image up there because now it looks like the president called me a loser.” Bobby Henline, a four-tour Iraq War veteran told Fox News referring to comments allegedly made by the president regarding wounded veterans. “And they’re using that to sell something that they believe in for their agenda. It’s not fair to put us [veterans] as props in the middle of all that,” Last week, The Atlantic published a story in which anonymous sources claimed President Trump had made disparaging remarks about fallen U.S. soldiers and veterans, calling them “suckers” and “losers” in 2018.”

    “Calling Chomsky Out: The Riots Are A Full-Fledged Attack by The Hard Left To Topple American Society”
    By Vasko Kohlmayer
    September 12, 2020

    https://www.lewrockwell.com/2020/09/vasko-kohlmayer/calling-chomsky-out-the-riots-are-a-full-fledged-attack-by-the-hard-left-to-topple-american-society/

    Chomsky, that is that Great Intellectual (as in: lying kike) who once famously said that “he didn’t care who was behind 9/11”. Because the f* is smart enough to understand who really did it, namely his own ilk. Can’t have that out in the open. Howard Zinn, same story.

    Obviously, even LewRockwell.com is too pc to link Chomsky’s opinions (“BLM is a great social movement”) to the man’s etho-religeous identity. There are no white people on this planet who more thoroughly have swallowed the anti-racism poisson cookie, as baked by Chomsky’s tribe. Libertarians, a very american movement, are about gold, income, low tax, small government, a completely materialistic movement, where humans are reduced to being economic subjects only. The one-dimensional libertarians cannot see through the intentions of the globally most power-hungry tribe, power-hungry with planetary dimensions, that intends to use said “great social movement” to put libertarians in the gulag. BLM is the equivalent of the 1917 Russian bolshevik movement, the new proletariat-of-color terrorists, designed to do the dirty work of the Leon Trotsky-du-jour George Soros. Same people, same methods.
