  1. I agree. I think of the scene in Fight Club where Edward Norton’s character shoots himself in the head to stop Tyler Durden. The conflict going on right now is between factions in the United States which have different visions of the country, and only one of those visions can prevail. Both sides point the gun at the country’s head and are ready to pull the trigger to make sure the other side is extinguished.

  2. The smart thing about the Chinese – unlike the Americans – is they understand that diversity is a cancer, not a strength.

    Diversity is a strength. The current totalitarianism is not.

  4. The crux is that “Western” billionaire oligarchs don’t give a shit about the USA or other Western countries, per se. They have houses and yachts and citizenships around the world, they are the “anywheres” versus the “somewheres”. Many of them made fortunes from transferring wealth from the working classes of the USA and UK to China and themselves, an upper class project that the political left opposed way back in the dim recesses of time, circa late 1990s.

    To the extent that the Western plebs can restrain the greed of the “Western” plutocrats, to that same extent the plutocrats will destroy the Western plebs. It’s just the nature of power and greed.

    So now our current “revolutionary” moment is being funded and supported by… the dominant US power elites and corporations?

    Gee.

    So transgressive! Viva la Revolucion!
