The Trump Avenue for global condescension


The planet-chief snapped against terrorism and threaten regimes. Speaking home, almost in the neighborhood he was born and raised, he broke the stereotypes of political correctness as he threatened with "totally destroy" the country of the "Rocket Man".


Justifiably, the reader wonders: what kind of condescension is this? Answer: "You can get much farther with a kind word and a gun, than you can with a kind word alone." Al Capone. That is: it turns out that his kind word about "the right of all nations to put their own interests first" had not been widely perceived, despite the huge publicity of his inauguration speech. The planet has just begun to realize -and if it has- that the planet-chief is strongly opposed to globalization.
And indeed, all this seems somewhat unthinkable. That’s because many people confuse globalization-fact (globalization) with globalization-theory (globalism). Many people think that globalization in communications, transport and commerce "goes pack" with globalism: the leveling of national borders, physiognomies and cultures. And the presidential 45 specified it. That’s all falks!
In this context, he did not miss to knit the praises of the cultures of the nations of the threaten regimes that had been attacked verbally. It is, however, exactly the same condescending spirit that adorned his historical speeches in Riyadh (21/5) and Warsaw (6/7). The same simple spirit he directly asked about the representatives of the whole planet: "Are we patriots?"
Many consider it all as old-fashioned and sick nationalism, perhaps Nazism. They fail to realize that neither the love of the homeland "goes pack" with hate for others. They fail to distinguish nationalism from chauvinism. Moreover, they find it difficult to understand that the so far known American perception of globalization (that is globalism), and the associated leveling, is the definition of Nazism. Hence the Goebbelism of the crooked media
All of this, however, leads effortlessly to a simple and crucial question: Does Kim know that America no longer has any imperialist predisposition? Other: Does Maduro "popular fighter" understand that he is asked to be patriot? One more: Do we all understand that the attitude "we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship", addressed to Muslims, is just the repeal of the ultimate causes/pretexts of Islamic terrorism? The fanaticism of the mullahs? No?
It is not easy for anybody –for sure!–  to be convinced of all these nice things, and even against the incredibly false picture that distribute the crooked media. Besides, it takes time. That's why the whole secret of the "Trump Avenue" here, is in the deep understanding of the soul of the strange planet-chief.
Here, first, the new concept that he brings to geopolitics, with his businessman-vision: "For the cost of resettling one refugee in the United States, we can assist more than 10 in their home region". He shook out the minds of politicants and bureaucrats; didn’t he? Did we hear anything about?
And, secondly, to be an excellent example of his deep humanity: the above proposal for the migration problem "Out of the goodness of our hearts". Incredible?
So, our avenue was drawn on two new axes. Instead of global leveling, harmonious coexistence of different (known as localization). And instead of sterile bureaucracy, creative geopolitics. In English-speaking revolutionary phraseology: make business, not war.
Excavations are already underway, but using explosives. And –
pity!– it gets dust ...
