@chic_savage Take a look at this exchange. The way I see it is that @realDonaldTrump is a reprieve from the drive towards globalism. The next generation to start running things is the millennials. If you read the article you'll see why that's a problem.

@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump I'm a big believer in historical cycles. I'm fascinated by books like "The Fourth "Turning" and "The Decline of the West."

Going by the first book, we're scheduled to enter a massive crisis on the level of the American Revolution, Civil War, and WW2 which come in 80 year cycles.
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump The second book is a deeper cycle that lasts over a millennium. The idea is that you sync up past cultures/civilizations with our own and see what happens.

Using Greece-Rome in parallel to Europe-America you get some incredible linkages.
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump If you baseline it with Alexander the Great = Napoleon Bonaparte and move on you get this:

Punic Wars (Rome conquers the Mediterranean world) = World Wars + Cold War (USA emerges sole superpower)

Then you get the internal crisis in Rome personified by Tiberius Gracchus.
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump Tiberius Gracchus (and later his brother Gaius) was a rich populist who defended the dispossessed veterans and out-of-work plebians in Rome vs. the elitest Senatorial class who bought up all the farms and brought in foreign slave labor to run the huge consolidated estates.
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump Sound familiar? @realDonaldTrump is a rich populist who wants to help the veterans and the working class in flyover America. The bicostal elites use central banking to rig the economy and bring in migrants for votes (Democrats) and cheap labor (Republicans).
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump Luckily our @POTUS @realDonaldTrump is a genius and is smarter than the Gracchi were (their stories didn't end well).

He's going to deal the elites a severe blow with the coming trials. We're going to get a #RedTsunami in 2018. He's going to #DrainTheSwamp
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump @POTUS My fear is what comes after this. The millennials are a big problem ideologically, but the debt/monetary crisis could convert them into responsible adults (kind of like hippies selling out and becoming yuppies).

If history is any guide, the next big personality is Gaius Marius.
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump @POTUS Marius was a populist who completely restructured the military and had 7 terms as consul (president). He lost in a civil war to the elitest Sulla who never lost a battle and created proscriptions (lists of political enemies to be killed).
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump @POTUS After that civil war there's another one between Pompey (elitest) and Julius Caesar (populist) in which the latter wins, declares himself dictator-for-life, and is assassinated by Brutus, Cassius, and the Senate.
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump @POTUS Caesar's heir Octavian and his right hand man Marc Antony team up temporarily to destroy Caesar's murderers. Then Marc Antony goes off to Egypt, marries Cleopatra, and gets into yet another civil war with Octavian. The latter wins and declares himself emperor Augustus.
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump @POTUS The rest, as they say, is history. Combining the two books, I'd say we're going through a huge crisis (book one) in which a new monetary and political order will be created. It will be unstable and internal battles will define that cycle. It will culminate with another crisis.
@chic_savage @realDonaldTrump @POTUS That crisis will fundamentally change America from a democratic republic based on state's rights and constitutional rule of law to an imperial laviathan based on expansionism and mob rule.

Good thing is that a second religiousness will emerge where we go back to Christian roots.

@chic_savage Certainly.

Oswald Spengler, inspired by the sudden suicidal conflagration of World War 1, wrote his epic “The Decline of the West,” convinced that he was witnessing a historical change of phase occurring before his very eyes.
@chic_savage He knew that it was just the opening scene of a great drama that had played itself out many times before, and would happen again many times in the future. He also knew that it wouldn't be long before the greatest conflict the world would ever see would engulf the entire globe.
@chic_savage Somehow Spengler could see what history was - like no one before him ever had. Historians believed that history was progressive in the sense that it was an upwards arrow and that each new age was "better" than the last.

World War 1 shattered that illusion. Forever.
