With Brandon's latest speech against the MAGA movement, there's no need anymore for either party to scapegoat China, Russia or Iran as a looming civil war seems to suffice just fine.Great insight True. It's interesting, thinking back to American politics there has always has been this big enemy. It's part of the system. The fight of the democrats and republicans being about who is the biggest enemy.
It's as if every both parties needs their own enemy. And what I find even more interesting that enemy based politics probably has a huge advantage for those in power. Looking at the quick list below, there has always been a war. If you rally the population against the enemy it gives internal stability, power, and easy ways to increase your power: Special laws, regulations.
- Nazi Germany
- USSR / Cold War / Communism
- Global war on terrorism
- The flu
I remember reading Machiavelli as a political strategist positioning war purely a tool for leader to stay in power. It make me think, what would the US be without wars? Wouldn't it dissolve?
Is it wars that build nations and that keep populations under control? That the war might be the most important element of statesmanship. That it's about picking the right enemy. The allegations to China are so surreal and far from reality, but it doesn't seem to matter, looking at the graph below China would be the best pick.

Just to be said it's completely sickening how the "peasantry" is abused and sacrificed under the disguise of glory and pride for the power hungry elites. It's tyranny of the physical body of man, but also on the spiritual body. Constant lies just to stay in power with many people deceived from the truth.
