In the News (The Washington Post):”President Trump’s executive order temporarily prohibiting entry into the United States for migrants from seven mostly Muslim countries and refugees from around the world fueled confusion, angst and a wave of protests across the country Sunday.
“Even as administration officials tried to clarify the reach of Trump’s action — ‘This is not a Muslim ban,’ the president said in a statement — the exact limits of its scope and legal questions over its constitutionality remained unresolved. So did the question of whether the administration would comply with orders from federal judges to temporarily halt the travel ban.
“Raucous protests erupted in airport terminals from coast to coast. Tens of thousands of people protested outside the gates of the White House, in Boston’s Copley Square and in New York’s Battery Park, with its views over the Statue of Liberty.”
My Comment: If Trump doesn’t limit the entry of immigrants it is quite clear that things will be much worse in the future. What we see in Europe is a warning sign for him.
Question: Does he understand that he is playing with fire? After all, the streets are full of demonstrators.
Answer: If a person is elected democratically and the democracy belongs to the young and liberal, why don’t they act according to the same democratic order? It turns out that democracy is only what they side with, and if not, then it isn’t democracy anymore but fascism. Why do they believe that there is no room for other views?
Question: What new level can we refer to with regard to the US and to the world? Trump has brought along a totally new approach. Europe would also like to be similar to Trump.
Answer: Of course. The more we delay the development of society, the more it will deviate to the right, which will lead to fascism and ultra-right parties that no one will benefit from. If the left-wing parties in Europe continue to hold power by any undemocratic means, ultimately, the extreme right will come into power.
Trump personifies moderate US, both from a business and financial perspective. He must do that. There are great forces behind him that will not give in. What is more, Trump has the nerve. He is a man who has already undergone everything, so for him the demonstrations are small chips.
The US has to simply say that although no one forces us to, we will allocate the means to build a normal state, normal districts for millions of people from Iraq, Syria, and other regions. We will do that, but we will not allow such great numbers of people into our country in total disorder as Obama did.
I believe that Obama let close to 10 million people into the US. No one knows what time bomb is ticking under the surface and how it is going to explode. We can already see the signs of that in Europe.
In 20 to 40 years, these millions of immigrants with their tendency to multiply, their influence, and their desire will become such a power in the US that they will change everything. They have a totally different mentality, religion, and nature. The US first needs to figure out what is going on with it. It is a country that now is in the midst of a destructive process compared to what it was 50 to 60 years ago.
Question: The same thing is happening in Europe now. What does this step require?
Answer: Europe needs to disperse quickly. Divorce can sometimes prevent many problems, since otherwise the two sides begin to hate each other, to hit and destroy, to take expensive lawyers only in order to prove to each other who is right. Eventually the two sides go broke and are left with nothing, as often happens in a divorce, and the children also suffer. This is the reason that Europe has to get “divorced.” Then the change of power will be more or less peaceful, and each state will exist relatively independently. The democrats and the liberals will reach a dead end, so they must do it. If they continue to hold on to power, they will invoke the emergence of radical right fascist regimes, totally opposite from them. I advise them to implement a peaceful democratic change of power today, the way they and the Europeans really want.
The time of a united Europe has passed. It has been untied not according to the principles upon which the EU should have been based. We have talked about it many times. Now Europe has to split up, and then it will be able to reconnect, but only after the whole population has been educated and learned the reason for all the troubles.
Question: What qualities do the leaders of Europe need now?
Answer: The European leaders today should be people who aim at the right liberalization according to which people are friends, comrades, and brothers; when everyone supports each other, when there are good relations between people, above their differences.
Religion, economic status, or origin should not affect the mutual relations between people. People have to work in order to achieve that, to change human nature, and this requires decades of hard work. This is exactly what needs to be done in Europe. Then it would be possible to open the borders for those who have been re-educated and they will be able to enter Europe.
Question: Do the same requirements apply to the US?
Answer: To the US and to the whole world! People need to start a re-education process and only then will they truly be able to establish a good common world.
