  At a recent speaking engagement a member of the audience asked me what was the most significant change I had observed in the 40 years I have closely followed American politics. I answered that it would take an hour to do justice to his question and left it unanswered, but have been thinking about it since and the essay below is partly designed as an answer to this question.   When I first set foot in the United States as an immigrant in January 1969, I knew English and was a big fan of American literature, but knew little of American politics, except that I imagined it to be strongly anti-communist, which is why I chose to emigrate to America to begin with. And it couldn’t be any other

ERDOGAN

The article first published in americanthinker.com on 08/14/2018. And so by mid-2018, Recep Tayyip Erdogan has achieved virtually everything he sat out to achieve when he first came to power in 2003. Turkey is now in everything but the name an Islamist dictatorship with Erdogan as the unchallenged leader. Yet, instead of feeling supremely confident, Erdogan and his clique are beset by ineluctable problems and foreboding of disaster down the road. In many ways, this was inevitable and stems from the very nature of the radical transformation of an imperfect democracy into an oppressive tyranny. Disaster for Turkey may not be around the bend, it was thought, but it was inevitable sooner rather than later. The collapse of the Turkish lira last Friday may have signaled that ‘sooner’ is now.   To

              “In Ukraine, even with a delay and the high price paid, a dangerous deathly expansion of Western alliances has been stopped. From a quasi-Weimar state on the defensive, Russia has now gone back to its familiar role as a victorious country, back to a new self-confidence.“ Karaganov, a Eurasian thinker with an additional chromosome instead of a brain fold.   For over twenty years I have been trying to explain to the delusional Russian political class some realities that I believe to be quite obvious to any normal human being. I persist in this hopeless mission, because this serious illness affecting the “nation’s brains” is leading my country to inevitable disaster.   The most important obsession of Russian foreign policy discourse is a

On March 25, 1957, six European countries signed the Treaty of Rome, which eventually became the European Union. The Treaty granted Europeans four basic freedoms (free movement of people, goods, capital and services) that taken together promised to take away narrow economic interests from ever again becoming the cause of the fratricidal wars that devastated Europe in the 20th century. As we celebrate the Treaty’s 60th anniversary and the longest period in European history without a major war, there is no doubt that it has been hugely successful in that particular objective.   Yet, the celebrations have been subdued to say the least, as Great Britain has now officially asked to leave the Union and doubts as to its very survival abound. What happened?   What happened in retrospect was
