The world is dominated by tactical doers who generally only see what is right in front of them. When you consider the level of disruption that is happening in the world, in the valley of the blind the one eyed country is king! This is too say that the country that has implemented the smartest long term strategy is going to occupy the high ground when this disruption comes to a conclusion.
I remember Bush 41 going to Japan to ask their Prime Minister to buy more American cars. The Prime Minister pointed out that Japan drove on the other side of the road and Detroit did not make any cars with the steering wheel on the correct side. Bush’s effective response was to literally vomit all over his Japanese counterpart. Today, Trump’s strategy is to shit all over everyone. American democracy has gone strategically from bad to worse!
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
