Right Obama. And wrong is right. Down is up. And bad is good. Such leadership! Truly transformative.

A worthy goal indeed! I think we should begin planning now. And, in the spirit of personal sacrifice in service of the common good, I will volunteer to stay behind with the barbarians to cover the progressives' flanks while they decamp to some faraway place to set up this Utopian Eden you speak of. And, at no extra cost (because that's the kind of guy I am) I will also hold the metaphorical screen door, so it does not strike their collective posteriors as they go off to their well-deserved reward.

One other thing to consider, when viewed from the pro "One World Government" crowd perspective is the role strong nation-states play in preventing the realization of their dream. For example, would the role of the U.N. be stronger or weaker in a world comprised of innumerable little "countries" like Catalonia, Basqueland, Scotland and Wallonia? In a world that is dominated by a dozen or more powerful nations on the other hand, worldwide government is much more difficult to achieve - mainly because these nations possess the ability to resist attempts to disempower them.

You are correct. But, due to the half century plus of American patrimony and protection, Western Europeans have also forgotten why the smaller kingdoms and principalities of Europe found it beneficial to organize themselves into modern nation-states. Peaceful, Star Trek-like Utopia's only exist in the fantasy worlds not also occupied by despots, rogue states and totalitarian nations bent on expanding their own domains at the expense of the weak, naive and unprepared.

Interesting that Russia is adding new dominions even as the politically liberal, yet culturally moribund nations of Western Europe seem to be collapsing under their own entropy.

There are also inroads to be made with socially conservative Blacks as well.

I give Jarrett an "A" for entertainment value, but an "F" for truth telling. Following in the rich denialist tradition with which the mouthpieces of authoriatrian regimes attempt to obscure reality from the masses, Jarrett is not yet on a par with Bagdad Bob, who was forced to stage his performance art literally as the bombs and missiles were falling in the background, or Goebbels proclaiming a Nazi victory, even as Russian tanks were pounding the Reichastag. But, make no mistake about it. They were all tasked with performing the same job.
Suggesting to Putin that future generations will judge him harshly is laughable, considering the current generation is condemning him now - and he doesn't care. The Russian people overwhelmingly approve of what he is doing and Putin knows he will not be seriously confronted by any meaningful Western response. So, the way he sees it, he has a clear field in which to work and likely intends to make the most of his opportunities while he has them. Western Europe will not stick its neck out while the U.S. cheers them on from the sidelines, and the U.S. will not be taking any meaningful action until a new president is in office, at the earliest.
