A snip from Wretchard’s analysis.
He is describing the Hell that has become the 21st Century:
Although Macron’s victory and Moon’s [South Korea] likely triumph will likely be portrayed as a return of electoral politics to the globalist mainstream — a reversal of the Brexit/Trump trend — they are actually the opposite. Both are attempts to solve challenges that have baffled the elite.
Hillary Clinton in her latest attempt to reinvent herself revealed an off-beat turn. “I’ve spent decades learning about what it would take to move our country forward, including people who clearly didn’t vote for me. To try to make sure that we dealt with a lot of these hard issues that are right around the corner, like robotics and artificial intelligence, and things that are really going to be upending the economy, for the vast majority of Americans, to say nothing of the rest of the world. So, I’m now back to being an activist citizen, and part of the resistance.” [Italics are in the original]
Macron is going down the same old, same old. Globalization, social media, scientific revolutions are still taking the world order apart. At least Hillary’s at the point where she’s changing the talking points to see what happens. The hurricane which began with Brexit and Trump, far from dying down, is amping up as the local elections in Britain suggest. The working class has been orphaned by the Left and Macron claims to be the Center. The winds are coming from another quarter. [and they carry with them the smell of smoke and burning flesh… – D]
It’s possible the ‘responsible’ plan is to rely on a Macron or Hillary to guide us into a future they alone understand, but not likely. Perhaps what is happening is partly explained by Venezuela, which exhibits an eerie stability even as it sinks into chaos. A New York Times article explains Venezuela’s calm as a case of stress aggregation rather than conflict resolution. The Venezuelan elites have not won and [are] sitting on their laurels; they are just deadlocked waiting for someone to break ranks to show which way to run.
Only Richard Fernandez could manage to envisage stable chaos. No doubt there’s a mathematical term for that?
Especially see his analysis in this essay of South Korea’s young. We have the virulent evils of 1950s Communism to thank for their predicament.
