The View From 1776

Diplomacy As A Children’s Game

In the real world of political power struggles, the failure of mission in China by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner demonstrates the fairyland quality of liberal-progressivism’s faith in harmonious world government under the tutelage of socialist intellectuals.

  1. Tutelage?

    Under your type of tutelage the world would be in a far shittier mess than it is now. If your kind of tutelage had prevailed in the past there wouldn't have been a Cold War with the Soviets but a hot one, resulting in no world.

    The trouble is that you want instant results. Talk about fairyland thinking!

  2. Under your kind of TUTELAGE, and that of the last administration you strongly supported, America got into the financial straight jacket it's in with China. Getting out of that straight jacket is going to take a lot of work. It needs thoughtfulness and patients that people like you can deliver.

  3. The View takes issue with the fact that America has become just another country among many, no longer the exceptional country it used to be. Ironically, this in great part is due to America itself, and the evolution of humankind. America has always demanded that other nations be more like it. So this is the result.

    History shows, in its course, a leveling out between civilizations, nations and humans. Thus it is only natural that nations like Britain and America would eventually become another cog in the world system. If America deliberately tried to stay top dog and deny other nations their rightful place that would create a lot of angst among nations, probably precipitating a far greater global war than has ever seen before.
