Today is the 15th anniversary of the terror attacks on the USA. What were the consequences of that fatal day most people remember? Yes, I also remember well that the 11th of September, 2001 was a Tuesday and what I was doing that day.
That Tuesday has ended Fukuyama’s “liberal democracies equal to the end of history” vision indisputably. It was the first big crack in Pax Americana. The USA was shocked to the core. The world was shocked, too. What would the giant do after the slap in the face? Well, the “War on Terror” could have been described quite well by the fundamental Hollywood revenge topos. It resulted in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and it resulted in the “Arab spring” when the still shaken superpower USA got rid of the Middle Eastern dictators in the name of “democracy”… But these Arab dictators were actually the guardians of stability in a region where liberal democracy simply could never work in lack of basic cultural and historic preconditions. Eventually 9/11 resulted in the bloodshed and anarchy we can witness today in the Middle East.
And, after years of anarchy and bloodshed, the population in the Middle East has decided (with lots of help and nudges from George Soros and Co., the puppet master of a possible USA president!) to go on a European hijra. And now we have terror in the streets of Europe.
And the disappearance of the Middle Eastern cordon sanitaire has opened up Europe to the depths of Black Africa, too. Of course, without PC liberalism, perhaps Europe could have withstood the waves from 9/11… But that’s another topic which I have written about several times.
