"It isn’t just in America. The world as a whole is pivoting. The dogmatic socialist established order is ending. We enter the age of the Deplorables. The Deplorables are ascending in America, with Trump, in Britain with Brexit, in Hong Kong, in much of Europe, in Latin America, in Iran. Deplorables are the antidote to arrogant globalist socialists."
What is it with the Deplorables? What gives them such power? Three things, I believe, are elevating them. Deplorables are pragmatic. They are not wedded to any extreme ideology. Deplorables will go with anything that works. It is no wonder that the Deplorables began in America. For, as Americans we inherit the pragmatism of our pioneering ancestors.
Second, the Deplorables adhere to the original American ideology of free individuals. They reject the concentration of government power that has accumulated over the past century.
The third energizer is a technological miracle – the internet. Establishments everywhere fear the internet. And properly so. For the first time we can instantly communicate across the world. We can find like-minded people everywhere. We have discovered just how very many people agree with us.
It follows that Deplorables are no longer just an American phenomenon, the phenomenon resonates with people everywhere. People around the world are much the same. They value their traditions and customs. They value their families, their values, their spiritual heritage. They value their nation. They resent the imposition of intrusive government by strangers, by bureaucratic globalists. They are becoming Deplorables.
Born in the still free parts of America, this new movement seems destined to chart the course for the whole world -- for this century and beyond.
