There was William Galston at the European Council on Foreign Relations, listening to his fellow elitists and foreign policy honchos caviling about the rise of Donald Trump and bemoaning the fate of the European Union (EU) at the hand’s of Britain’s Euro-skeptics. As the assembled luminaries had a collective sad in their five-star hotel, wondering how the proles could’ve gotten so far out of hand, Galtson – longtime Democratic party hack, former domestic advisor to Bill Clinton, and a senior fellow at the ‘centrist’ Brookings Institution – heard a call to arms. It was almost as if Cecil Rhodes, the British imperialist and original founder and financier of the Council on Foreign Relations, had spoken to him from on high – or, rather, from below – and commanded him to spread the Word far and wide:
‘I realized that the stakes in the U. S. presidential election are even higher than I had thought. The fate of the entire postwar order hangs in the balance, and with it the prospects for democracy world-wide. Without vigorous American leadership, the prospects are not bright.’
Oh, yes, those shortsighted Little People are ‘turning inward,’ and ‘this is understandable,’ but, hey, ‘liberal internationalism is back on its heels’ and the dreaded ‘ethno-nationalist populism’ – i.e. resistance to the One World ‘global governance’ schemes of Galston and his comrades – ‘is on the march.’ What’s a globalist to do?
