COMMENT – THE LUNATIC WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE – ON GOING BACKWARDS

 

“US weighs returning Cuba to list of ‘state sponsors of terrorism’”

 

Trump tries hard to return to the past in so many of his efforts.

Of course, most people understand it is never possible to return to the past, but it is certainly important when a leader believes he can.

Unfortunately, we are all dragged along by his efforts on behalf of just over four percent of the world’s people.

He has earnestly been trying to return the United States to what it was economically in the world of 1959, as if that were at all possible.

He is trying hard to re-ignite America’s ugly passion of the 1940s about the “yellow peril” concerning China.

He is trying very hard to return to a time of settling disagreements without courts or binding rules or treaties, using just threats and brute force.

He is trying to ignore some of the advances of modern technology simply because they favor someone other than the United States.

We see him trying to return to a time when Granny’s advice on sickness substituted for that of a doctor.

Now, we have a tip of the hat to relations with Cuba in 1960.

What can you say about anyone focused on going backward, especially the leader of the world’s most powerful nation?

If he were alone, it might not be so alarming, but he has the support of nearly half of America.
