The 45th President of the United States addressed the United Nations General Assembly, Tuesday, September 19th in New York with a speech that made perfectly clear the virtues of Americanism.
He correctly pointed out that the independent nation-state is the best arbiter of nationalist goals when in pursuit of the best interest of their own citizenry and rejected the advent of globalism. He presented as evidence, how the United States Constitution turned 230 years old, making it the longest, consistent national blueprint for a free, self governed nation – state in the world and yes, the entire room.
He emphasized how the significance of the three bold words “We the people” encapsulated the spirit of independent free thinking, self government, and individual sovereignty to a world of Kings and Potentates. Those words made it clear that the American people are forever and henceforth a free people. He instructed them about how in our national history, that premise was tested by civil war and shed our own citizen’s blood to secure it, putting an end to slavery in the United States.
He evidenced the proposition that an ethnically diverse people from many nations can congeal into one nation, as one people; “E Pluribus Unum” , “From the many, one.” It is a testament to a national identity, where citizens are bound together by shared principles and volunteer to protect each other, endure in our founding Constitution.
It was sound advice to the assembly of world leaders, how American prosperity and military might came to be, and that they too can replicate our model of success, not by force of might, but by sharing compelling ideas that work, when human potential is let alone to do what it does best, which is to create, invent, improve and innovate to uplift the human condition.
Stern and foreboding as it sounded, but the message to the leaders in North Korea issuing threats of attack against American citizens and American allies with ballistic missiles tipped with nuclear weapons was diplomatically clear. When Kim Il Jung threatens the American people with death, despite diplomatic overtures dating back for decades, he will only invite assurances of total destruction by the 45th President of the United States and definitely not an apology or blackmail payoff as done by former Administrations. It was North Korea in 1950 that launched a bloody invasion of conquest against the South Korean people. It was the United Nations that assembled the military response to stop them and protect the South Koreans, which ended in an armistice in 1953.
The notion that the same regime in 2017 would acquire an arsenal of nuclear weapons and a delivery system is an unacceptable proposition to rationale minds. Most especially, when shortly thereafter North Korea threatens to fire them on Japan and Guam. For media pundits to pretend it is irrational for the United States of America to in no uncertain terms convey to the world that the only outcome of such a folly would be nothing short of vaporizing entire cities on both sides, only more abundantly conveys their unwillingness to grasp the existential threat the North Korean regime poses to themselves, their neighbors, and the world.
Geo-political students understand that the alignment of nations are no longer in bi-polar or multi-polar configuration. We are in a unipolar, economic, military, and political posture as the single super power that is a nation-state. The globalist agenda to induce a realignment of powers that reduce American power with a counterweight of bloc-states failed as evidenced by the last American election and the BREXIT vote.
The President made it abundantly clear to all, that North Korea would do better picking a fight with Godzilla than risking the might and fury of an unshackled American military machine on anyone who launches a nuclear attack against the United States.
President Trump was spot on when he pointed out how the implementation of full blown socialism destroyed the prosperity in Venezuela and everywhere else it has been tried. He makes the point with the support of history, that it is a lethal virus to a healthy economy and fatal to a once prosperous people.
It was no coincidence that the leaders of Russia and China were absent from the world stage in that it allowed President Trump to deliver his message alone. They already knew what he was going to say and gave him the stage to do it. Their absence was also diplomatic language to the world. It said North Korea will be on its’ own if they continue this reckless course. They are like the friends at the bar who warned you not to pick a fight with the bouncer and you didn’t listen.
Finally, the message of doing what is in the interest of your own people will invariably lead to what is prosperous and peaceful for some and isolate those who seek a course of violence and anarchy. Americanism is a beacon to a future of great promise as new technologies, innovations, and wealth is created through the vehicle of free enterprise and rising entrepreneurism. The world stage has for the first time in the 21st century a world class business leader with a laser beam focus on wealth creation for the American people. Wealth in the United States translates to the spread of wealth around the world, because wherever there is free and open trade, American consumers spend money abroad.
The globalist vision for the people of the world begin with empty promises of collective harmony but really end in collective economic enslavement. The rise of Americanism, individualism, and nationalism as forces for good in the world is a winning formula because there is no counter-argument with tangible proof to disprove it. Contrarily, the former U.S. Administration’s globalist agenda left a world filled with uncertainty and chaos as a legacy of foreign policy disasters in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, Ukraine, Cuba, Venezuela, El Salvador, Mexico and Europe.
This Presidency instructed our international neighbors that the power of individualism is stronger than the ill conceived delusion of collectivism. Look to nation building from the inside outward. Nationalism over globalism will usher in a more peaceful and prosperous century.
The 45th President of the United States became a world professor with this lecture at the United Nations General Assembly, now we can only hope that the students apply these life lessons for the betterment of their nations, and their people.
