The momentous events of 2016 (particularly Brexit and the election of President Trump) herald a sea change in the long struggle of those who have spent their lives battling against the increasing power of the State to control and influence all aspects of our lives. For the first time we have hope that the common sense of the common people, rather than the Socialist establishment elites of the post WWII era, can prevail.
The offensive starts with the inauguration of Donald J Trump this week as the 45th President of United States. Trump is the first ‘independent’ president. He is only nominally a Republican. He is hated as much by the elites in the Republican Party as the Democrats. This is good. He has broken the mould of American politics and so brings hope of an end to the oppressive PC establishment polices of the stagnant Bush-Clinton-Obama era of the last quarter century. I love that the Obama legacy is Donald Trump with Republicans in charge of both the Senate and Congress.
The offensive continues in Europe where elections in France, Holland and Germany could continue the destabilising of the EU started with last year’s Brexit vote in the UK. The tide is running against centralised blocs with global influence. It may be too strong for the member states to resist the momentum.
Trump and Brexit have dislodged the cornerstones of globalisation. Global institutions like the United Nations, home of the One World government movement, have fought, like the EU, against the interests of individual nation states, especially in the first world democracies of the west. All Trump has to do is stop funding this monolith of political correctness and the whole edifice will come crashing down.
In similar vein, all Trump has to do to end the ridiculous, unscientific, energy sucking myth of ‘climate change’ is stop funding the universities and institutions who have profited from the multi-billion dollar gravy train of government grants that has sustained it. Then he should stop subsidising the ‘sustainability’ industries. If wind and solar cannot exist without subsidies then they are not ‘sustainable’.
While globally 2017 is shaping up to be every bit as interesting and significant as 2016, locally it’s a different matter.
Quiescent New Zealand continues supporting its increasingly Socialist (state centric) political parties. This means that whichever parties make up the next coalition government we will have more of the same, stultifying political correctness that has engulfed the rest of the world. The only possible hope of change here is that the balance of power will be held by NZ First, but Winnie is no Trump or Farage. New Zealand, once a world leader in forward thinking political movement, has become a stalwart of the UN, with its cultural and political elitism.
Meanwhile the inauguration beckons and I’m looking forward to it. It will be a victory parade of the un-PC. Few, if any, celebs, thank goodness, as they give in to death threats and intimidation from the ‘peace loving’ PC brigade. Instead it will be policemen, firemen, military vets, bikers and marching bands or, as Trump puts, it ‘the number one guest is the American people’.
How refreshing!. He has mustered a Heartland Army to begin the offensive against the effete, perpetually offended snowflakes. It should be no contest.
