man’s status is better and higher for the very reason for which it is thought to be inferior: Pelagius.

Trump, the US version of Gorbatchev
by Thierry Meyssan
For Thierry Meyssan, the policy of the United States since the fall of the Soviet Union has been a combat between two schools of thought. On one side, the partisans of prosperity, and on the other, the partisans of imperialism. Money or Power. This cleavage exists within each party, Republican and Democrat. However, time flies, and the United States is now on the edge of inner collapse. As of now, Donald Trump finds himself in the uncomfortable position of Mikhaïl Gorbatchev.

This is a very interesting piece from Thierry Meyssan back in January.
The Federal Reserve is apparently Eyeing lifting US Interest Rates and the Trade War rhetoric was really getting going before the latest Pantomime.
The US Task Force is not going to get to the Gulf before the month of May any action before then would fall on the shoulders of an under-invested UK Navy and The French. Macron has been flouncing about but Syria is not Libya and The French whilst adept at espionage ( Rainbow warrior anyone.) are not really going to take on Russia.
Saudi and Israel have been up to their necks as have US and UK with the rebel (Islamist) Jihadis But its all very much up in the Air. Tillerson’s departure is curious of course Bolton is a disastrous Replacement and Pompeo is also not a good sign but Tillerson was obviously still pushing for a section of the Oligarchy which Trump is not In?
For those here old enough to remember Kremlin watching in the Cold war I think Thierry Meysams piece linked above is a useful bit of Whitehouse Watching. It is all about the Petro Dollar at the end of the day and how the Faction of the Oligarchy Putin Stands With and The Other Factions decide to get away from the Exorbitant privilege of Petro DOllar hegemony.
The End Game has always been a Carbon Based Currency, the religious significance of the CLimate AGW meme, And other Catastrophic and Misanthropic poppy cock trotted out by the commissars of Climate political correctness does manifest in zombie-like kill all Dis-believers cult to with Chomsky’s discourse on Bakunin here is quite apt.

“We must now take precautions to prevent you from being embarrassed by something in which the ignorant majority is at fault for lack of proper consideration, and so from supposing with them, that man has not been created truly good simply because he is able to do evil. … If you reconsider this matter carefully and force your mind to apply a more acute understanding to it, it will be revealed to you that man’s status is better and higher for the very reason for which it is thought to be inferior: it is on this choice between two ways, on this freedom to choose either alternative, that the glory of the rational mind is based, it is in this that the whole honor of our nature consists, it is from this that its dignity is derived.”
Pelagius
”They [the Marxists] maintain that only a dictatorship—their dictatorship, of course—can create the will of the people, while our answer to this is: No dictatorship can have any other aim but that of self-perpetuation, and it can beget only slavery in the people tolerating it; freedom can be created only by freedom, that is, by a universal rebellion on the part of the people and free organization of the toiling masses from the bottom up.´´
—Mikhail Bakunin, Statism and Anarchism
“Who seeks for better of thee, sauce his palate
With thy most operant poison! What is here?
Gold? yellow, glittering, precious gold? No, gods,
I am no idle votarist: roots, you clear heavens!
Thus much of this will make black white, foul fair,
Wrong right, base noble, old young, coward valiant.
Ha, you gods! why this? what this, you gods? Why, this
Will lug your priests and servants from your sides,
Pluck stout men’s pillows from below their heads:
This yellow slave
Will knit and break religions, bless the accursed,
Make the hoar leprosy adored, place thieves
And give them title, knee and approbation
With senators on the bench: this is it
That makes the wappen’d widow wed again;”
― William Shakespeare, Timon of Athens
