Where do the European countries & USA go from here?
Utter naive ideological delusion.
Before you start trying to change the world you have to understand two axiomatic maxim that lay behind all politics. They may be immoral, evil even, but they are true, thousands of years of lived experience has proven that this is how leader rise and retain power.
Those who forget, fall.
No 1 Might makes right, this is the big stick, the authoritarian father who makes you feel safe.
No 2 Is Capitalism, the promise of bread today and every day and Jam tomorrow, IF you conform to the system.
This is the carrot.
Hegemony is the second string to this bow. You can have a Rolls Royce if you prove yourself worthy, tomorrow.... but for today you can have a pretty good ford to get you by... If you prove yourself worthy.
This why in a "Civilised" society theft is worse than murder, killing someone to take their car is abominable and death worthy, but killing some one to stop them stealing your car is positively laudable.
Things are more important than people, especially people who are not "really" people, for what ever reason.
Master the use of the carrot and the stick, and "the people" will not only follow you, they will worship and love you as you beat them, steal from them and as you feed their children to your war machine, they will thank you for the honour.
What did MacGregor mean by “rootless cosmopolitans” when talking to a group of Serbian Americans here?
Or here where he says according to a CNN article: “They feel entitled,” Macgregor said. “And when the food stamps stop, when the free services end, when the heating bills aren’t paid and the heating doesn’t come through in many of these large cities—Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Washington, Baltimore, St. Louis, Detroit, New Orleans, San Francisco, Los Angeles—this underclass that resides in these places, I think could become very violent.”
From the Wikipedia he seems to be a frequenter of Fox News and Putin’s mouthpiece RT:
So he does not seem a neutral commenter when talking in your video about a “failure of empathy and a lack of true engagement with the people and cultures that are at the heart of these issues”. Where is Putin’s empathy?
