IT’S NOT DOG WHISTLING – IT’S DETERMINISM
by Bill Joslin
For those dubious of impending interviewer violence (4GW) consider the rise of nation states and Westphalia peace constrained violence to state actors lone i.e. elimination of private war and intra-border violence.
The rise of globalism requires the erosion of national borders and with it the constraints on war to inter-border actors (nations) which reintroduces intra-border violence i.e. non-state actors engaging in war.
Domestic violence (war with in borders) rises as Westphalia peace eroded. What we call terrorism today.
Those that would call us warmongers or dog whistling are ignoring much more complex relations to sport out “m’uh provocateur! Rheeee!!”
Choice is – acknowledge the full array of probabilities and prepare, or stay ignorant of probabilities and succumb.
We are facing:
1) low birth rates (urgent)
2) demographic replacement (urgent)
3) erosion of institutions which minimized intra-border violence (low trust commons)
4) re-incentivizing non-state actors to engage in war either via proxies or directly.
We must consider and calculate ALL of these issues, not just the ones we’re comfortable with.
