The postmodern globalism of the last 75 years is in decline. Those who have built their lives upon its “inevitable progress” are straining to keep their power as they accelerate their dismantling of cultural institutions, human autonomy, and national identities. “The end of democracy!” Apocalyptic scare tactics that turn their neighbors into devils is all they have left. That’s the only reason they demonize Trump on so many false grounds (we can criticize him on plenty of true grounds but he lacks enough real faults to be apocalyptic).
That said, there are real crises afoot. If we don’t address the national debt by cutting spending (not raising taxes), we will all wish the oceans would rise faster.
