A great interview by Charles Adler with Mark Steyn on Sun TV.
Steyn suggests that America needs to go cold turkey on gobbling borrowed money and give up stuff like this.
I just can't see that happening right now.
They discuss the inevitable rise of China as the world's strongest economic power (scary) and how the New World Order will actually be a world without any (moral) order at all.
Of course, it's not just Mark Steyn that is sounding the alarm bells on China.
Read some thoughts from Spengler as well:
"A world dominated by China would be a brutal and unpleasant place. There
is no inherent kindness or generosity, no sympathy for the weak in
Chinese culture. China never revered a God who has a special love for
the widow and the fatherless. Perhaps that will change. A tenth of
Chinese now profess Christianity and more may in the future. I want
America to prevail. To do that we must make the Chinese leadership
respect and fear us, rather than merely annoy them."
As Barry Rubin also points out: Now's the time for western societies to put on the brakes or go off the cliff.
