Nationalism was crafted in the 18th century, became useful in the 19th century by providing scale to larger ethnic groups, then delivered all the horrors of the 20th century through ethnic cleansing across Europe, Asia and Africa.
A key goal of Trump’s Goebbels, Steve Bannon (left), is to let this monster loose across the Western World again, revisiting the horrors of our grandparents on our grandchildren. Steve Bannon makes Dick Cheney look like Santa Claus.
But Bannon is now running the Trump budget.
Why increase the military budget by 10%, when we can already beat any conceivable collection of enemies with ease, unless you intend to intimidate or invade? The Department of Defense is once again becoming the Department of Offense. This is what got us into Vietnam, Iran and Afghanistan.
