gideon.rachman@ft.com predicts doom for ‘The West’!

Political Cynic …

Its not ‘The West’ that is under threat! It is the American Empire and its murderous incompetence, which is not collapsing, but is crumbling from the inside: Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema hold the fate of The Republic in their trembling, but greedy, hands!

Next question: Recall those 37 million refugees?

While Mr. Rachman riffs on Chicken Little and breathlessly predicts that ‘Doom‘ awaits ‘us’, like Niall Ferguson? If the ‘West’ doesn’t ‘circle the wagons’. My cliché mongering almost matches that of a Financial Times pundit?

This is a howler :

Political Cynic  

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
