Re: The Future of the World

The US has not gone crazy. It is time to adjust to changed circumstances. The Europeans have the resources to defend themselves against a diminished Russia. Not against Russia's thermonuclear Arsenal. Russia has a gdp about the same as Canada’s. Surely Germany can build a nuclear deterrent. Or Fran...

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: 50,000 missing FBI text messages include threats of physical harm to POTUS

You have to nip this sort of thing in the bud. Investigate and indict them if any crime has been committed. At minimum, those culprits must be fired.

The US has not gone crazy. It is time to adjust to changed circumstances. The Europeans have the resources to defend themselves against a diminished Russia. European and Japanese economies have long recovered from the destruction of the war. The main threat to the future of democracy comes from China.

Re: The Trump-Fatty Kim summit in Singapore

I have some comments on the Kim-Trump meeting, but I will not contribute to a thread with a childish designation of Chairman Kim of North Korea.
