The world is watching. Europeans, as others around the globe, have reacted in horror at scenes of a pro-Trump mob storming Washington D.C., guns being drawn in the House Chamber, and lawmakers being ordered to evacuate through underground tunnels or shelter-in-place. Four people have died during the riot. Facebook and Twitter have, in an unprecedented move, temporarily locked Donald Trump out of his accounts for inciting violence.

The US President is supposed to be the “Leader of the Free World”. If so, perhaps it’s time the free world stopped looking to the US for leadership? How else can Europe interpret the fact that the USA cannot successfully organise a peaceful democratic hand-over but as a sign of American decline? Coming amidst such a shambolic response to the coronavirus pandemic, the reputation of the United States has undoubtedly suffered among its partners.

Despite it all, the US and EU remain allies. Despite the chaos unfolding across the Atlantic, President Ursula von der Leyen has affirmed on Twitter she believes in the “strength of US institutions and democracy”. It’s true that America and Europe share core values, including a belief in democracy. Yet fundamental to democracy is the notion that the loser accepts defeat and concedes peacefully. By this measure, Donald Trump has failed.

Is America in decline? Can the US live up to the image of democracy and freedom it wants to project to the rest of the world if it can’t even guarantee a peaceful transition of power on its own soil? Has American influence peaked under Donald Trump? Let us know your thoughts and comments in the form below and we’ll take them to policymakers and experts for their reactions!

    Yes, but not only America. It is, and has been in decline for decades, and it is a decline of morality that affects every aspect of life. Government policies, laws, language and education reflect the decline. How can democracy flourish and voices be heard, when it boils down to 2 parties and whoever has more seats controls the power? Many in America scream about socialism… without actually understanding European governments. Democracy should reflect more than ‘red or blue’- Republican or Democrat. It should be made up of several diverse parties with more voices where compromise and working together are absolutely necessary. This 2 big party ‘democracy’ has led to the polarization and ignorance that we are all seeing and it is sad because the United States is important for the world and has much to offer but also bears much responsibility because of that.

    Is America in decline?

    Yes, and sadly, has been since the nineteen seventies. I have relatives there in a few different states and lived there over varying periods. It has become oppressive and many are leaving looking for an escape route. They don’t want to end up in similar circumstances to Zimbabwe.

    The trouble is, poverty is rife there now. And all this BLM pretence is a sham. The whites are as poor and killed more often than minorities, which are not and have not been minorities for decades.

    Long gone are their Happy Days of growing wealth and comfort, the middle class look forward to eviction and tents now. Little work left and what there is pays pennies. They have no health service to speak of, it is worse than Pakistan when you have only insurance to back you up. Insurance companies rip them off and laugh at it. They despise their clients. Never want to pay up.

    And if Biden thinks he is going to get away with the same shiite as Obama he has another think coming. Which, of course, is why his back up is female and ethnic. They believe this will calm the rioters.

    Interesting the claim being Trump is to blame. If you believe that you are in serious trouble. He is the fall guy. Even the police and armed forces know they have been used and abused by the Democrats for years. Not that Republicans are much better as they are all on the ‘Gravy Train’ called Globalism. Cheap labour in the third world versus minimum wage in the west and so on. You can exploit an entire village in China/India for one year salary in the west. Hence Biden and Hunter’s love affair with low paid sewer life outside their borders.

    And if the EU is under the misapprehension this unrest is going to settle once this ‘fake’ President moves in, you better dwell on real history. France being one in question and its revolution. Their leaders wanted them to ‘eat cake.’… Lying on the floor in their Senate office isn’t going to save them from anything they see coming. Bad Karma is a strange bed fellow.

      You think hardcore Trumpers take their cues from Black Lives Matter activists on acceptable limits of behavior? That had to be the stupidest political analysis I have ever heard and keep in mind, I live in America and spend a lot of time on Facebook. In that respect, its quite an impressive feat.

      I suppose that in your limited imagination, this is a defense of Trump, when it’s no such thing. It’s entirely possible, in fact, to reject Trump completely while pointing out that the liberals have broken all this ground already, when they laid siege to the Portland federal courthouse, while firing explosives into it (!).
      Anyway, I *incredulously* saved the articles where the liberal press (and Democrat politicians) defended the “summer of love” and uh, “fiery but mostly peaceful protests”, knowing that the day would come when people claim it never happened.
      So here you go – I have a few hundred more:
      https://www.thenation.com/…/blm-looting-protest-vandalism/
      Anyway, back to Trump – this is eerily reminiscent of Weimar Germany, where the communists absolutely laid the groundwork for nazi terror. Some of the American right’s rhetoric is also nazi-like, but as of yet, they haven’t built any concentration camps yet.

If Trump had wanted to stage a successful coup, I suspect he would have made more of an effort.

      I assume you do live in the real world and that within that world you watch the news locally, if not world wide. You cannot play the ‘we didn’t do that game’ when the internet is covered in BLM riots, which, by the way, began four years ago. Check out ‘Back Lives Members’ involved in political riots, not only the in US but also other parts of the Western world who, they feel, will allow it. And who pays for this, is it you? If not, any idea who? It could not be various arms of ‘Biden’s Democratic Party’ could it? He, being the mover and shaker of that den of iniquity for 47 years.

      Yep, I have no doubt that the hegemony of the world will go to Asia this decade again (it was like that until the silk route lost it´s importance thanks to us, China decided to close themselves to the world and Spain discoreved the american continent in the 15th century), and not only because of China… South Korea, Taiwan, Singapure and Japan will also become technologically more advanced this decade and I´m not sure US can keep the pace with them. That and the fact that US left the Asean agreement to sign individual agreements, plus the asian RCEP agreement that kept US and EU out. Basically they delivered the commerce of Asia to China. And now we have the EU/China agreement… So US commercial policy is basically getting pushed to the roupes thanks to trump strategy. He was right considering China their main threat, but it´s strategy was a total disaster for them. Now let´s see what Biden is abble to achieve, but I have my doubts.

      James McManama In words, NOT in fact … They have said that they’re gonna give € 1,8 tril Euros , but …. in time… And because We know how E.U reacts in crises, meaning always “In Delay” or “by retreat” (where are the Billions of Euros of Junker’s programs for unemployed young people ? ), we are absolutely NOT optimists about any help. And that “aid”, I don’t think that they are going to give it “in gratis”. I’m very afraid that they are going to impose New “Austerity programs”, that in connection with the old ones, they are going to provoke Chaos and Anarchy in all E.U. countries. So what we see today in U.S.A. is the future in E.U.

      James McManama 

      Yeah, but what you don’t say is that it was blocked because Hungary and Poland vetoed the stimulus package over rule of law conditionality. But an agreement was reached to unblock it in December, so the stimulus can go out to member states now.

      I thought Trump was the Law & Order President? The woman who died inside the Capitol Building – and it’s a tragedy anybody lost their life – was allegedly (unconfirmed at this point) shot dead by Mike Pence’s secret service detail. So, this looks to be Trump-on-Trump violence, and still it should be condemned. Trump has FINALLY conceded publicly and said there will be a peaceful transfer of power, but four people had to die to feed the man’s ego because he was so scared of being labelled a loser.

    • avatar
      Karel Van Isacker

      James McManama nope, she was shot by a police guy. It is amazing how you try to twist and turn so that violence against the people is allowed. That surely is not democracy but 1984.

    • avatar
      James McManama

      Karel Van Isacker We both condemn violence, and we both agree that ANY loss of life during the pro-Trump riots is a tragedy. In that, you and I are agreed. It’s very possible she was shot by Capitol Police (though the guy who shot her was wearing a suit and had no badge, so we might not know who he was until after the investigation that’s been announced). I don’t want to spread misinformation, so I’m happy to admit it was probably Capitol Police. But Trump either way has blood on his hands over her death. He wanted to protect his ego, and fed the lie that the election was rigged to his supporters.

    What a political mess “made in the US” & no quick fix!

    Is it a reminder of the 1933 German Reichstag fire or a modern US version of the 1938 Kristallnacht targeting the Dems? Too much stress for a tough 80-year-old Pelosi?

    I am watching too- but can’t help to look back in history when empires were first forged by wars, violence, subversion, clandestine operations and destructions of nations through drugs, agents in cahoots with Politicians and Mafioso’s- be they Europeans or Americans.

    A good starting point would be the 1st Opium War (1839–42) between Great Britain & the Qing dynasty- the rest is history and available.

    Recently, the well-known calls by Dem Hillary Clinton for “Regime Changes” in particular (Iraq, Syria) and by the US since 1945 in general, targeting South America, Asia, Europe and any “unfriendly” or “undemocratic” country are on record.

    Their “geopolitical plan” has found strange resistance & policies might be reconsidered. Besides his peculiar character, one should not forget that the 45th US president was deliberately harassed & threatened by the opposition Democratic Party throughout his term with impeachment & obstruction, instead of cooperation. Old habits?

    Q: since when has a private entity like “Twitter” (Mark Zuckerberg) been empowered (by whom or self-censure?) to act as a “US institution” watching over the US & maybe global democracy?

    Do the political games continue while Twitter opportunistically tries to earn brownie points with the next US Democratic Party lead government?

    Just as a side sidebar, for your additional awareness of what is going on here in the UK, silently, and without question. We are being told we were not taught truth on the history of our nation prior to today. And are we to trust this new method is truthful?

    Very expensive private schools in the UK, this one a school for girls, although gender is nothing to do with the issue I am expressing, have told the parents that they will no longer be adding history in the present method to their curriculum. They give no open reason, however, the whisper is, they no longer offer history as a subject in the traditional way, as direction from above, says they must change the perception. History must now be presented with changes to previous teaching. The school feels, as a result of these changes, they can no longer offer this subject without clarity or dedication.

    Ring any 1930’s bells?

    Daily Mail.

    Elite girls’ boarding school Roedean ‘decolonises’ its history syllabus to challenge ‘white western narrative’

    Roedean School, near Brighton, will introduce an updated syllabus to students
    Those aged 11 to 14 will now learn about black Tudors and Sara Forbes Bonetta
    They will also be taught about China’s Song dynasty and the Brighton slave trade

    PUBLISHED: 10:06, 12 December 2020 | UPDATED: 18:10, 13 December 2020

    A private girls’ boarding school has rewritten its history syllabus in order to challenge the ‘white western narrative’ following the Black Lives Matter movement.

    Roedean School, near Brighton in East Sussex, is set to move history classes away from Britain’s ‘island story’ and instead teach students about world events in a wider context.

    Pupils aged 11 to 14 will learn about black Tudors and Queen Victoria’s goddaughter Sara Forbes Bonetta, a west African ‘princess’ who was enslaved before being rescued and brought to England, the Times reported.

    They will study the Second World War from a global perspective, considering the impact of the event – which involved the vast majority of the world’s countries – elsewhere.

    Students from Year 7 to Year 9 will also be taught about the Song dynasty – which ruled China between 960 and 1279 – alongside the Islamic Empire.

    Other subjects in the ‘decolonised’ syllabus will include the slave trade in Brighton and the life of traveller Sake Dean Mahomed, who introduced Indian cuisine to Europe.

    Headmaster Oliver Blond said: ‘We wanted to challenge the predominantly western European narrative and to look beyond the limitations of Britain’s “island story”, to discover hidden histories both nationally and internationally.

    ‘The question was raised as to whether everyone in the Roedean community saw themselves in the history they study at school and to this end more diverse perspectives have been incorporated within the existing programme, in order to challenge preconceptions and stimulate debate.’

    Then-Education Secretary Michael Gove said in 2010 that schools should focus their history syllabus on Britain’s ‘island story,’ adding: ‘This trashing of our past has to stop.’

    However, there has been a recent drive to ‘decolonise’ the curriculum in the UK following the Black Lives Matter movement, which was sparked following the death of unarmed black man George Floyd in Minneapolis in May.

    At Roedean, which was founded in 1885 and charges up to £22,000 per year, pupils taking GCSE and A-level examinations will continue to take ‘more conventional’ history classes.

    Head of History Sarah Black said: ‘While we have been keen to add new units of study, we have also been mindful not to take a tokenistic approach and have wanted rather to integrate new perspectives from a more diverse range of groups … to challenge preconceptions and stimulate debate.’

    It comes after the headmaster of Eton College promised to ‘decolonise’ the curriculum and diversify his staff after an appeal from students and parents in June.

    Tony Blair’s former school of Fettes College in Edinburgh, pictured above, said it would use the moment as ‘a catalyst for real change, and we are working with staff to produce an action plan’

    Simon Henderson said he would ensure pupils at the prestigious school ‘understand the historic roots of racism and, even more importantly, how it continues in the world today.’

    He made the pledge in response to a letter signed by 635 students and parents, which considered the issues of ‘race and inequality’ raised after the death of unarmed black man Mr Floyd.

    The letter said it was ‘imperative’ that Eton teaches a curriculum which ‘attempts to address and reveal systemic racism within society.’

    It added that British colonialism and race relations ‘is a subject that needs to be given more precedence in the syllabus, instead of being ignored or briefly touched upon.’

    Top independent schools such as Winchester, Fettes, Ampleforth and St Paul’s Girls are also said to be ‘formulating new approaches’ to teaching about Britain’s colonial past.

    Gavin Williamson (pictured) previously indicated he would be ‘incredibly interested’ in making sure the country’s history curriculum is ‘reflective’ of Britain’s diverse population

    ‘We have initiated a review into the school’s culture and practices, and it is our intention that this review will conclude next term,’ Winchester College said.

    ‘A major focus will be our curriculum and our desire to teach beyond the traditional syllabus by applying a global perspective and a broader range of source material,’ it added.

    Tony Blair’s former school of Fettes College in Edinburgh said it would use the moment as ‘a catalyst for real change, and we are working with staff to produce an action plan’.

    It appears previously we in the UK were lied to by the form our history lessons took, but now ‘the new truth’ is going to put us all straight.
