A mixed cultures world is inevitable, is inevitable since the 15th century but these globalists
are pushing this transformations to their own benefit and we can´t allow that.
Levelling all by the lowest common denominator is what globalisation is.
I agree but I also do not think that Mr. Trump is one to alter this 'top down' transformation from independent nation states to a truly global
As you say, globalization is inevitable and for me at least, any belief that holds that it is not is just askew, is not realizing the overall flow of
history. But how do we get from 'here' to 'there' if not by 'top down' means. It seems to me that humans have almost always moved and transitioned by
this formula. The top moves and the bottom follows.
Yet I am also in complete agreement that the globalists who are now in positions of power, power enough to guide rather than coerce or force their
brand of globalization do not seem to be doing this in any enlightened manner. Maybe some are trying, I don't really know.
As I look out at the world, I ask myself who is it that has for the last half century at least that has been speaking out and suggesting that this
globalization is coming and that it is something that we should embrace, that it is something that is inevitable, that it is something that will not
be easy but something that we must adjust to and attempt to alter our own age old concepts of how we as individuals can change from the 'mine is the
God proven way' to one more flexible in understanding that globalization should be for all of us and not just for the few on the top of the
I will be the first to admit Crap, that I am stuck in a rut my parents set me in when I was young. They fought in WWII and I was born in that first
wave of Boomers. My parents were dead set against further wars. My father fought in the jungles of New Guinea and my mother attended him in hospital
when he was dragged out. They both became liberals because they vowed to do what they could to not see another war like that. They both embraced the
attempts of the world at that time in the formation of the UN. I was raised in this mold and find it hard to abandon.
Now of course, I have come to understand the falicies of the UN. How it was little more than attempts of the rich in what was left of the rich
countries to advance their own goals of power. I have known this now for decades, but who else is there who is even willing to consider this
For all these years I have listened and it is only those who have at least publicly held to liberal principles that have appeared to hold this notion.
Conservatives almost across the board have held the other way. That globalization is wrong that cross cultural assimilation is wrong, that all
attempts to unify the world is wrong. That is wrong unless it is done in a way that America will be the boss. Because America is the best, because
America will fulfill God's will and make the world a Christian place and blah blah blah.
So I ask myself, how can we go about this. I do not trust those within the existing power structure to do ANYTHING other than securing their own
power. ANYTHING. But AT LEAST, there are those within that liberal mindset that still seem to be open to the concept that globalization is inevitable.
Do I find this with in the conservative mind set? No I do not.
So yes, Clinton is a tool of the globalists. I agree, and I hate her for pretending to be liberal. But to the side a moment, there are those
conservatives who believe that she is a socialist, that she is a commie in disguise. What a bunch of hooey.
But back on point her as you request. Trump, is he a globalist? Hell no. He is a capitalist. He is not a builder, he is not an entrepreneur. He is a
money manipulator who buys other companies in jeopardy or default and then puts his name on them and trys to sell them for a profit. He is not
pointing us towards this inevitable globalization. What he is pointing us to is exactly what his base is screaming for. No to the rest of the world
and America first. He has found as his base the most conservative anti globalist crowd in the country. Should he win, would he then turn his back on
his constituency and show his more liberal side? Would he then show that he is truly a globalist? I think not.
I think him to be a wanna be PTB. His own skill and his own charisma and prowess has not gained him the stature and power that he has wished for
within his own 'I am the only one who can do it' mind set. I see him as an over the top narcissist will not and cannot admit his own failures and
needs to blame them on anyone, on EVERYONE, else.
I think that should he be president, he will surround himself with more people of the same caliber. People who will blame anyone else and it will only
Now, do I believe that Clinton is the answer??? Flakin zero chance of that hey. Not a drop in the bucket of possibility. But for me, this juggernaught
called civilizaton has gotten us to this point where, it is my hope, my dwindling hope, that the liberalism of my parents, of my youth still smolders
in the hearts of the liberals who see the inevitability of globalization and find themselves under that liberal umbrella will find a way to throw off
the chains of the 'not so liberal after all' Clinton cabal so that something better can emerge from the rubble of that tired political party.
One final side note. You mention those disastrous trade bills, like nafta and the World Trade Organization. Those treaties that were signed under
Slick Willy and his pals. Do we think that was his doing? Hell no. He was doing the business of his masters, the capitalists in charge. He bowed out
of any real liberalism he might ever have held and became a capitalist shill. And look how he has prospered.
Well, Crap, I hope I have furthered this conversation by getting back on point and focusing on the 'larger issues' we face in this election and the
near future. The very near future. Pray we can make it through the next four years in any case.
