“Trumpism Goes International” by The Elephant's Child

Fascinating post at American Greatness: “Trumpism Goes International

You wouldn’t know it from listening to the mainstream media, but some powerful, left-wing European and Asian countries are emulating Donald Trump’s economic plans, including tax cuts, regulatory reforms, and fair and equitable trade policies.

These reforms are America’s most historic economic changes in 25 years, for which President Trump has been roundly criticized. Even so, influential nations are not only copying these policies, they are also describing them as historic cultural shifts.

Deciphering America’s mood and what’s going on in the heart of the country won the election for Trump. But the president has also tapped into the world’s mood, and other countries have picked up on his agenda. This is radical and revolutionary stuff. Practices, proposals, legislative changes, and economic agendas unseen since the Reagan presidency are once again on the table. What is fascinating is how little awareness of these events the American press or elected officials seem to have, nor do they have any idea of their significance.

Do read the whole thing. It is worth pondering. Certainly the European Union has become something of an empire, unresponsive to its member countries and unimpressed with the problems they are imposing on them. Europe has had long experience with empires, and one would think that they learned some lessons, but elites never seem to grasp the moment when they have just gone too far. And they are oblivious to the fact that the migrants they are imposing on their member countries have their own empire, which they plan to install in Europe, over the coming decades.

At some point, Europe will awaken and notice what is going on around them, but will it be in time? Or we all so captivated by the ongoing anguish and outrage and end of the earth angst that we cannot recognize what is really going on around us either?
