Constant hard to find
The nationalisms of 1918 and 2016 are more or less the same.
The globalisms of 1918 and 2016 are different in flavor.
Wilson's version of globalism was not centered on a world government; it was mainly about extending American influence everywhere. Because globalism had not been tried and disproved recently
, Wilson was able to preach it and spread it. Sounded like a good idea.
WW1 killed it. Americans came to understand that imperial impulses lead to bad results for ALL sides.
WW2 did NOT resurrect globalism because our entry was a strictly moral response to a direct attack. After the war, normal people still understood that nobody wins.
So the evil globalizers had to work ferociously hard to overcome the angular momentum of a populace determined to behave morally.
The opening blast of the NEW Wilsonism shows beautifully in this Mutual radio program from 1946.
Hard work indeed. A long hymn of cloying syrupy praise for Our Goddess The United Nations And Her Prophet James Byrnes.
Who? Truman's sec of state, whose life
sounds a LOT like the Clintons. A southerner who learned globalism from Wilson and acquired wealth from Bernard Baruch. (=Soros in modern currency)
While glowing with praise for UN and Byrnes, the Mutual program throws turds at USSR and Gromyko, and pours an overflowing caldron of scalding scorching sulfuric gurgling bigotry and vile all-consuming hatred on those unspeakable unimaginable xenophobe buffoons called AmuriKKKans.
Sounds fucking familiar.
I had to readjust my diffusing fibers
to peel apart the constants and variables. Until now I had assumed that the UN, and our Cultural Superiors who defended the UN and EU, were simply pro-Soviet.
Nope. They were ANTI-Russian and ANTI-American for a long time. The bit about 'godless communism' was pablum for AmuriKKKan consumption. In fact the elites hated Russia because Russia was obstructing the UN's desires. Around 1962 Russia started moving in unison with UN, so the elites became PRO-Russian and ANTI-American. Now, after the 1989 switchover,
they're back to the original position with stronger venom. ANTI-Russian and ANTI-American, except for Our Prophet Hillary Who Must Lead Us Out Of The Xenophobe Buffoon-Infested Jungle Of AmuriKKKa.
Hillary has replaced Byrnes.
A quote from Truman, channeling Byrnes: "Yet now Russia stirs up rebellion and keeps troops on the soil of her friend and ally Iran... Unless Russia is faced with an iron fist and strong language another war is in the making. Only one language do they understand: "how many divisions do you have?" I do not think we should play compromise any longer ...I am tired of babying the Soviets."
Sounds fucking familiar.
The constant is globalism. No borders, no cultures, no nations, no subsidiarity, no feedback. ONE government for all.
Taking this forward, who is Trump? Could be Ike.
An imperfect nationalist who managed to restrain the worst of the imperialist impulses for a while. Or could be a complete head-fake. I've never been sure, and less sure now than before.
