What will the next few decades bring us?
If Hillary is elected, war is certain. If Sanders gains the White House, I think we veer more towards isolationism. If Trump is elected, I have no idea. The guy treads both sides of the aisle and neither.
The problem with the world is that we always yearn for conflict. Peace is but a lull in hostilities for humanity. The world has been at war more often than not. Even during periods which have been described as “Eras of Peace” there have been small, geographically contained wars.
Many folks want to blame the US and our interventions for the conflicts and chaos raging across the planet. There is no truth to this. Humanity was at war with itself long before the ancestors of the founders were born. Humanity will be at conflict with and amongst itself long after America has fallen and been forgotten. Someone else will be blamed but there is never one point of conflict and never one source of conflict. The world is chaos. Humanity will always find some way to divide itself.
We may as well let loose the Dogs of War!
