Globalists & Nationalists: Who Owns the Future?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The new resistance of Western man to the globalist agenda is now everywhere manifest. We see it in Trump's hostility to NAFTA, his tariffs, his border wall. We see it in England's declaration of independence from the EU in Brexit. We see it in the political triumphs of Polish, Hungarian and Czech nationalists, in anti-EU parties rising across Europe, in the secessionist movements in Scotland and Catalonia and Ukraine, and in the admiration for Russian nationalist Vladimir Putin.

The Eternal Lure of Nationalism

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Western elites may deplore the return of nationalism. But they had best not dismiss it, for assertions of national and tribal identity appear to be what the future is going to be all about. Looking back over this 21st century, the transnational elite that envisions the endless erosion of national sovereignty, and the coming of a new world order of open borders, free trade and global custody of mankind's destiny, has triggered a counter-revolution.

Trump’s nationalism is a serious play to unify America

Rich Lowry, New York Post

Trump ended his SOTU by hailing people from all walks of life, saying, “above all else, they are Americans. And this Capitol, this city, and this Nation, belong to them.” If he resolved to routinely live up to that sentiment, he would do himself, and our political culture, immeasurable good. In political terms, it isn’t Trump the alleged tool of the Russians or Trump the budding dictator whom Democrats have to fear most; it’s Trump the nationalist unifier.

The Fork in the Road Between Nationalism and Conservatism

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

There are a lot of nationalists in the GOP convinced they are conservative. But they will pursue policies that show otherwise. Conservatives are going to have to be vocal and vigilant and point out that protectionism fails, unionism decays, and corporatism corrupts.


What frame of reference could younger Americans possibly have? Patriotism, nationalism - even American citizenship are taboo in today's school curriculum. Globalism, diversity, and political correctness trump real history, sound economics, and science and the Founding Fathers are simply old, dead slave-owning white guys.

Nationalism, Not NATO, Is Our Great Ally

Patrick Buchanan,

A new world is coming. While perhaps unwelcome news for the transnational elites championing such causes as climate change and battling global economic inequality, it's hard to see any great threat in all this to the true interests of the American people.
