I wish I could bottle the experience of the transformation of life in the early 80’s after the tragedy of the 60-77 period. Star wars started the new positive mythos. Reagan restored confidence, discourse and hope. Gibson and Scott gave us visions of a technological rather than warfare future. Technology promised economic opportunity. Studios produced moral movies with white characters, a hint of pagan magic and christian justice, after a decade of degeneracy.
That brilliance lasted through the 2001 collapse, and the 2002-2008 period that followed was but a temporary interwar peace funded by transfer of excesses into the housing market – America’s most important and nearly exclusive industry.
I knew the end was nigh because our advantages were consumed.
We have made moral and yet self destructive and world harming policies since the first world war.
We are not the worlds parent. We cannot defend Brittania – something she herself would not do. We cannot defend europa. Had the world degenerated into the poverty of communism and had we crushed the communists and socialists at home with the ruthless violence they deserved, then we would still be the wealthiest people on earth, and the rest still wallowing in socialist poverty.
But we killed europa to constrian germany against the moral corruption of england, and we sacrificed ourselves to constrain communism.
All so that we would not feel guilty crushing local socialists, most of whom we had only recently allowed to immigrate.
No. More. Guilt. It drives us to actions we are indeed guilty for.
