As we have contented here repeatedly, the Western bourgeoisie has a problem extending its hegemony over the Third World (or the emerging markets, as it is euphemistically called). Despite the evident faults, flaws and fallacies of brutal autocracies, from China and Russia to Turkey and Iran, it is equally evident that their populations are unwilling to marry the Western degeneracy (it is emphatically not "culture") that our bourgeoisies wish to impose on them - for the simple incontrovertible and unassailable reason that they can see for themselves the deleterious destructive effects that bourgeois degeneracy wreaks on our lives and on our nationhoods.
The Western capitalist bourgeoisie is caught between a rock and a hard place: on one hand, it needs to destroy its working class by exporting production to autocratic nations whilst distracting its constituencies with "culture wars" and identity politics. On the other hand, by so doing, it empowers these inimical autocracies and, at the same time, it has to try hypocritically to export its socially divisive identity politics to national populations that simply refuse to countenance them - precisely because they can witness their destructive degenerate effects in the West!
Below are two instances or examples, taken from today's Washington Post, of this senescent degeneracy that is leading our Western societies to the edge of the abyss. Read and reflect!
