Amerika

Outliers (#53)

Only ruins remain of the formerly vital West. Donald Trump continues his rampage through the American political establishment by slowly dismantling its cozy internal relationships; in the UK, Brexit remains a reality in theory. Le Pen was not elected in France, which has sparked a massive wave of internal discontent not just with the election but with liberal democracy itself. Evidence continues to pile up that diversity has failed, equality is a fantasy, and that the West has been failing for centuries or millennia but has finally hit the do-or-die point of no return. Do we rebirth ourselves, or continue the slow degradation into thirdworld status? Just don’t endanger my retirement plan, buddy.
