Nyquist: "The Final Treaty"

J.R. Nyquist has kept many of us honest through the years about THE giant threat most of those pulling the levers and pushing the buttons have been trying to stuff into the proverbial dustbin of history.

Unfortunately, the threat IS very much alive and real. J.R.'s latest essay is another jolt to the soft, quivering solar plexus ...

Excerpt:

Nothing can stop the disarmament process over time. It will advance, and will signify the weakening of the West as it signifies the strengthening of Russia and China. The final, predictable, and tragic result of all this was foreseen by James Burnham more than four decades ago. With all that happened during and after World War II, it seems that nothing has been learned about the essential nature of free society and the essential nature of societies that are decidedly not free.

Read it and marvel.

Buchanan: "Ethnonationalism: The Wars of Tribe and Faith Return"

Excerpt from Patrick Buchanan's March 18 column:

Globalization is no longer on the march, but on the defensive. Economic nationalism is rising. Across the Third World, we see an upsurge of ethnonationalism and fundamentalism, especially among the Islamic peoples. From Nigeria to Sudan to Mindanao, Muslims battle Christians, as Christians are persecuted in Egypt, Iraq and Pakistan.

In India and Thailand, Muslims battle Hindu and Buddhists. In the Northern Caucasus, they fight Russians.

Ethnonationalism, that relentless drive of peoples to secede and dwell apart, to establish their own nation-state, where their faith is predominant, their language spoken, their heroes and history revered, and they rule to the exclusion of all others, is rampant.

In China, Tibetans fight assimilation and the mass migration of Han Chinese into what was their country, as do the Uighurs in the west who dream of an East Turkestan breaking away and taking its place among the nations of the world.

In speaking of the rising tribalism abroad, Schlesinger added, "The ethnic upsurge in America, far from being unique, partakes of the global fever."

Indeed, separatism and secessionism seem to be in the air.

Read it all.

"Five Doomsday Scenarios for IT: Tech Apocalypse"

Can you survive without your telecommunicators, computational appliances, and domestic maintenance machinery?

Think about it:

Technology drives just about everything we do, and not just at our jobs. From banks to hospitals to the systems that keep the juice flowing to our homes, we are almost entirely dependent on tech. More and more of these systems are interconnected, and many of them are vulnerable.

"Collapse of the American Empire: swift, silent, certain" - Farrell

Another necessary read, the March 9 column by Marketwatch's forthright Paul Farrell ...

Historians warning of a sudden "thief at night," an "accelerating car crash."

(Image here is Thomas Cole's "Desolation, the fifth in the "Course of Empire" series, referred to in the linked column.)
