COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

“As Trump turns his back on the world, the stage is set for President Xi’

There is a lot of truth in this idea.

And I’m sure this brilliant and well-educated man, Xi, (degree in chemical engineering and a doctorate in Law from one of China’s best universities, in a country where the competition for acceptance is fierce) will take every advantage he can.

Trump represents a step backward, but then so does virtually this entire generation of American leaders. A whole list of inadequate people who busy themselves over total nonsense like Russian election influence. Washington resembles a dangerous lunatic asylum at times.

Trump himself, despite his past business success, has really now demonstrated a remarkable degree of incompetence and I would say cowardice in the face of powerful domestic interests.

America is desperately flailing around in every direction to enforce its global dominance in the face of new realities with new rising powers and new economic realities.

The post WWII glory is unavoidably headed for relative decline for many reasons, and a multi-polar world is emerging. These are things we should all welcome.

America’s efforts to avoid its relative decline is a hopeless and dangerous effort.
