Our own Crisis of the Third Century

Excellent article by The Saker:

Mr. MAGA and the End of Western Civilization

It’s pretty critical of Trump, but also very critical of pretty much everyone else, particularly those who richly deserve it. It’s also a very good summary of the current mess we find ourselves in.

A very short excerpt:

Nobody can predict how this struggle between the Neocons and the Clinton Gang on one hand and Trump on the other will play out, but my personal guess is that Trump is a disposable President: the Neocons will use him to do all the crazy shit they typically are known for, and when the inevitable disaster strikes, they will blame him, him alone, while hiding their own role in what took place.

Sadly, I am in complete agreement. Failing to keep Trump out of office in the first place, the powers that be will settle for making him their scapegoat for whatever happens to go wrong in the next 10 or more years. And there’ll be a lot that goes wrong.

Additionally: I wasn’t sure what I was going to title this piece, until I came across one of the comments to the above which likened our current situation to the mess that Rome found itself in roughly 1800 years ago. It’s a very apt comparison, IMHO.
