Power-hungry government officials’ eyes have been opened to how far they can stretch their ’emergency powers,’ and climate change is their next frontier.
So what can politicians do to protect their citizens from being coerced into experimental medical procedures and surveillance databases they aren’t comfortable with?
Turning great-power competition into a simplistic struggle between good and evil defies basic realism. Naturally, Biden chose to do so in his first major foreign policy speech.
For once, conservatives are saying we should follow Europe. School boards should listen to the rest of the civilized world and return American kids to school.
Under no scenario would a unified European Union aligned with China be in the interest of America. Indeed, a united EU might not be a friend but a foe.
On Christmas Eve, negotiators for the government of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the European Union announced they had reached an agreement in principle on a trade deal.
The European project is doomed to failure and collapse if it insists on trying to force its policy agenda on those opposed to its basic political ends. This is the lesson Americans also need to learn.
Leftist elites in Europe are tying their fate with Democrats, becoming a natural adversary of any future Republican administration. That is a long-term mistake.
America and the United Kingdom would be wise to let Egypt, France, and Greece take the lead in balancing a dangerous and resurgent Turkey.
In 2020, it is even more evident that global institutions are not to be trusted. During times of actual crisis, they are not just incompetent, but also downright indifferent to tragedy.
There is no way a President Biden or Sanders would have gone against the academic models’ conclusion to leave open travel from China — but Trump did, and saved countless lives in doing so.
Coronavirus isn’t coming to the United States, it’s here. Even if its worst-case scenarios are never realized, the economic — and potentially political — pain will be massive.
A new world order demands new geopolitical thinking and new leadership. An informal trade, research, and defense bloc that values national sovereignty would be a good start.
As a reforged connection to the rest of the Anglosphere beckons, Britain now feels the same shaky optimism its former colony once felt — trying to chart an independent way ahead, coming out of an empire.
Even as The Economist drifts further and further into progressivism and away from the liberalism of its founding, it still claims to be liberalism’s true, authentic voice.
If these predictions come to pass, their fulfillment will have lasting effects upon America in the 2020s and beyond.
The EU won’t be able to lead by example if other countries can see what the Green Deal is actually headed toward: economic ruin, job loss, and more unwanted government intrusion.
It is far easier for the right to compromise on economics than for the left to compromise on culture, religion, and nationalism. And that is the formula conservatives need to remember.
With greater expansion comes greater dilution, and a diluted alliance is as good as dead, as there will never be a sense of internal cohesion.
