Two men encompassed the beginning of the end of the Cold War. Ronald Reagan could not have accomplished the peaceful end without the grounded Russian realist who saw very clearly what the future held if the Cold War went on. Mikhail Gorbachev must have seen not just the hand writing on the wall but the oceans of blood if the War went on as the Soviet Unions red star faded into the mist. He accepted reality. Most of his ilk refused to even consider it much less embrace it and wriggle it to the best possible outcome.
One can almost see the hand of fate, or God, in each of the worlds two options reaching the pinnacle of leadership at the same moment together to end the Proxy Wars of the 20th century and open the Iron Curtain to the West and the forces of Capitalism before Globalism tore most of it all down again. In Reagan we had a statesman of the ages. I don't doubt that he'll rank high on the list of such men even a thousand years from now and the bitter school of hard learning must acknowledge that without a man just exactly like Mikhail Gorbachev it would not have mattered at all what Reagan did. A lot of men always refuse to accept defeat. in Gorbachev we found a man who could.
A lot of the world is recoiling from Globalism and rightly so. It is a deadly philosophy that holds all men hostage by declaring them useless and insignificant. Perhaps. In people such as Tesla I find some hope that not all will proceed down the "enlightened path" of global socialism with the human face provided by the likes of Schwab, Soros and Zuckerberg. Worst comes to worse, none of them actually realize how deep the Spirite of America flows; not just here but everywhere it has reached over the long decades since the founding of the first true Republic since the fall of the Roman Republic.
Into every generation is born the seeds of disaffection of the previous one and my God do the current generation have much to feel great disaffection for since they have born the brunt of the stupidity of the class war, the race war and the gender wars all stirred up by the evil people who embrace all such wars in the name of equity. As most any of the disenfranchised ignored and downtrodden know to their bones, your equity sacrificed equality before the law and in all things in the name of endless war.
Don't worry groomers, they're going to tear you to pieces when they reach their majority and it may look a little more like Europe in 1912 then what you may even think is possible. You have divided them up by arbitrary and stupid rules of "equity" and they will turn those around on you so fast you won't even see it coming.
