Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

And for all that, some parts of the West Indies are actually upper income. Bermuda and the Caymans are wealthier than, say, Australia. On paper? Nope. Bermuda is like if you put Beverly Hills on a rock in the middle of the ocean. Bermudians are so well off that they have to import people from elsew...

Re: US Foreign Policy

The UN represents the world as it is, and is the only place where people can talk before they start shooting. It's either the UN or nothing, and nothing will only make wars more likely and more frequent. That's false. There is also the option of multilateral talks, which historically have proven oc...

Re: US Foreign Policy

"US withdraws from UN Human Rights Council" http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/us-withdraws-from-un-human-rights-council-10449488 A good start . . . Once the US has subverted the UN in the way it did the League of Nations, we may expect the same consequences... By "subverted" I guess you mea...

Re: The woes of Italy

No, never fail. Populism means promising popular policies regardless whether it is good for the people. Who decides what is "good" for the people? Intellectualy superior people like you?... :D That's why the wise Greeks decided that people would be chosen for office by lottery, and could only stay ...

Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

Of course nations should do what they believe is best for themselves. Unfortunately, many of them lack sufficient self-respect and seek to hide under the umbrella of a "preferred partner." Lack of self-respect has nothing to do with it. Instead, their policymakers calculate their own country's stre...

Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

Perhaps you believe that there have been nations whose governments were so altruistic that they put the interests of other countries ahead of their own. If so, please enumerate. Otherwise your comments make no sense. To repeat the points I made on this thread: 1. The US is discarding partners as th...

Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

Indeed. Hopefully the world may now be better equipped to put the leash on the beast... I don't think so Sertorio. A US president has only limited powers. Constitutional limitations; the division of powers between executive and legislature and between the Federal and states means that the experienc...

Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

"Manhattan Island = crass worldly ambition driven by Ashkenazi passion?" (neverfail) One thing I noticed during my only visit to Australia - a distinct languor among the passive population that could no doubt benefit from a shot of "Ashkenazi passion." "A distinct languor" you say? You only visited...
