The countries of the European Union are also falling apart, mired with mounting debt along its southern tier. European, over the years have become increasingly self absorbed, Godless, and hedonistic. European elites who have allowed a wave of immigrants from the Third World – mostly from North Africa’s Muslim states – while the birthrates of native Europeans which have been well below replacement levels, are now reaping what they have sowed. Europeans live for today with little thought of tomorrow – a lifestyle some psychologists might describe as clinical depression.
The collapse of U.S. and global economies that began the slide towards depression in 2008, revealed the critical absence of global leadership. There are no leaders with the stature such as Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, or even Bill Clinton. The tragedy for the U.S. is that this one time super-power is being led by an former community organizer with no executive experience who is incapable of effectively handling the crisis of confidence he has created.
The people in charge, whether in Britain or the U.S. have no idea how to solve the economic and social crisis engulfing large swaths of the world. Laws upheld for centuries in the West are not being enforced or are being simply overlooked and criminal gangs in London and Philadelphia, and gangster leaders like Assad, Gaddafi, and Ahmadinejad are not being held accountable and punished by the U.N. or brought down by a super-power like Obama’s U.S.A. The criminal gangsters and the incompetent western “leaders” have broken the rules of civilized behavior and there is no one to set them straight.
The upheaval being experienced throughout the West world and beyond is bound to spread to China through the Internet and the social media. In India we have seen anger over the culture of corruption gaining steam, which bodes ill for the current government. And, as repression has its limits. Putin’s Russia may soon experience the people’s frustration via their social networks as well.
In this crazy new fearful world, the lines between right and wrong have been deeply blurred, and there is no longer any pretence of decency and morality. Israel, an open and pluralistic democracy is seen by the U.N. as the constant villain, and regarded by the Europeans press as “the most dangerous state in the world.” An EU poll ranked Israel above Iran and North Korea as a threat to world peace. And, the UN Human Rights Council, which President Bush declined to join, but whose membership President Obama eagerly accepted, boasts a membership that includes Libya and Saudi Arabia – both such strong “models of human rights and religious freedom observance.” To make matters even stranger, U.S. President Obama panders to the Muslim world and only under duress relented on his appeasement of Iran and Syria while pressuring the Jewish state to make suicidal concessions.
Not too long ago, America’s voice was heard wide and strong, and there were consequences for those states and groups that harmed U.S. interests or broke the international moral code. Nature, it is said, abhors a vacuum and in the absence of leadership and a moral compass world chaos and mayhem have become the norm.
