The End Of Globalism

The election of Donald Trump seals the fate of the Merkelite globalist bankster scum and their allies

When it rains, it pours. As the Great Recession, eurozone crisis, stalled tradedeals, increased conict between Russia and the West, electoral revolts againstEuropean political elites, and nally Brexit followed the 2008 financial meltdown, the fact that globalization was running out of steam should have been obvious to all.


Merkel, globalists lose - and lose big
Yet most of its converts were blind, and even the ercest rebels against globalization never expected to claim the top prize—the WhiteHouse—and so soon. World powers are now scrambling to react to Donald Trump’s paradigm-shifting election as president of the United States. Japanese Prime MinisterShinzo Abe, after repeatedly expressing concern about a potential Trump presidency and pointedly meeting with only Hillary Clinton before the election, rushed to New York for face time with the president-elect.


European leaders have been more ambivalent, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel even putting conditions on working with Trump.

And the Russians have seemed downright gleeful; in a congratulatory note, Russian President Vladimir Putin wrote that Trump’s victory could bring “a constructive dialogue between Moscow and Washington on the principles of equality, mutual respect and real consideration.” Yet the feelings of perhaps the most consequential power—China—remain somewhat unclear.


During the campaign, China was a primary target of Trump’s dissatisfaction with trade. Yet Trump’s likely jettisoning of the Trans-Pacic Partnership (TPP) trade agreement would immediately benefit China. And for obvious reasons, his anti-interventionist foreign policy outlook suits the Chinese.

For now, there are signs that Beijing is still processing the enormous development and is calibrating its response. In the new era ushered in by Trump’s victory, the Chinese have the most to gain—or to lose.


It better hurry. In the new era ushered in by Trump’s victory, the Chinese have the most to gain—or to lose. And as the world’s second-largest economy and its largest trading nation, China’s response could mean the difference between prosperity and stagnation, and even war and peace, around the world.

THE RISE AND FALL OF GLOBALISM

Globalization started as an innocent enough concept in the 1970s: the world was becoming increasingly connected through trade, investment, travel, and information. But after the Cold War, it was injected with an ideological component: globalism. And now one can hardly distinguish between the two.




Globalism is rooted in the neo-liberal doctrine of the Washington Consensus, which was initiated by the first post–Cold War U.S. president, Bill Clinton,and carried out by the successive administrations of George W. Bush andBarack Obama.

It envisioned a world moving inextricably toward the adoption of a united set of rules and standards in economics, politics, and international relations. National borders would gradually lose relevance and even disappear. Cultural distinctions would give way to universal values.

Electoral democracy and market capitalism would spread the world over. Eventually, all countries would be governed in more or less the same way. The process would be backed by the United States’ hard and soft power.




Indeed, it was partially according to this logic that neo-liberalism’s o spring, the neo-conservatives and liberal interventionists, took America to war in Afghanistan and Iraq.

And therein lies the problem; globalism was a Trojan Horse. It devoured globalization, turning it into a force that seem unstoppable until it collapsed under the weight of its own hubris.

In the West, the leading disciples of globalism became its greatest beneficiaries. Wealth and power concentrated at the top, among the owners and deployers of capital, who favored free trade, multiculturalism, multilateral institutions, and even regime change and nation building in foreign lands.


That "Oh... shit" look you get when the realisation hits that not only have you backed the loser, but now your very existence can be measured in weeks or months

But their vision harmed the vast majority that constituted the middle class.

Just one generation after winning the Cold War, the United States saw its industrial base hollow out, its infrastructure fall into disrepair, its education system deteriorate, and its social contract rip apart.

Beyond the economic damage, changes in social values propagated by globalism threatened social cohesion.

The political scientist Robert Putnam captured the process best in his important book, Bowling Alone, in which he described in painful detail the collapse of American communities. In the name of globalization, in other words, American elites had been building an empire at the expense of a nation.




The same thing happened in Europe. Technocrats in Brussels, along with their allies in national capitals, pushed an ever-expanding set of standards onto an ever-expanding European Union, relegating to the back burner the interests of the people in its member states.

In some European countries,youth unemployment reached and stayed at 50 percent. Had the globalist elites been more modest in their goals, they might have been able to push their vision further.

But it appears to be too late. They’ve been overthrown at the very same ballot box that used to sustain their rule.
