Robert David Steele asks me “Where’s US going culturally over the next 90 days to 4 years?” I explain that political liberalism—the doctrine that society should protect each individual’s private pursuit of happiness, without any shared vision of God or the good — is in crisis. The collapse of American democratic-republican liberalism, exemplified by the JFK and 9/11 coups, is accelerating. The complete collapse of liberalism (and with it our Constitutional freedoms) looms, and could happen from the left or the right. COVID-19, which appears to have emerged from a US-Israeli bioweapons strike on China and Iran, could be the catalyst for such a calamitous transformation. If so, it would fulfill the expectations of Strauss & Howe, whose generational cycles theory predicts a horrific war and collapse of the social order around 2020.
