There is truth to the Trump camp belief that globalists pose a threat; they might choke us to death on their platitudinous B.S.:
What has been made clear by current events and financial upheavals since 2008 is that the global economy has become truly that — global.
The near meltdown we experienced a few years ago made it clear that our economic health depended on dependence on each other to do the right thing.
We are now closer to having an economic community in the best sense of the term — we work with each other for the benefit of all.
I think we’ve all become aware of the fact that our cultures and economics are intertwined. It’s a complex mosaic that cannot be approached with a simple formula for the correct pattern to emerge. In many ways, we are in unchartered waters.
The good news, in one respect, is that what is done affects us all. There won’t be any winners or losers as this is not a competition. It’s a time for working together for the best of all involved. Never before has the phrase “we’re all in this together” had more resonance or relevance.
My concern is that the negligence of a few will adversely affect the majority. I’ve long been a believer in the “look at the solution, not the problem” theory. In this case, the solution is clear. We will have to leave borders behind and go for global unity when it comes to financial stability.
Leave borders behind? That’s not how you Make America Great Again.
Oh wait, the above was written by Donald Trump in 2013.
But no doubt he recently changed his mind on globalism, like he did on abortion, guns, illegal immigration, Iraq, Syrian refugees, Shrillary, Obama, et cetera, ad nauseam. Then again, it is likely he would change all these views back again in accordance with his natural inclinations if he ever took power.
