I'm not sure I know what you mean by "it" in this context.
There is a lot of insight in that column. I do see Russia and China striving to destabilize western alliances. Speaking as an American, I don't really get why Trump is so enamoured of Russia other than the fact that it was they who bailed out his bankrupt company. With China we are enablers because despite railing against global markets, we send most of our money to them by buying the stuff they make for our consumer-driven lifestyle.
It should be noted that most Americans do not want Trump and reject his message. But the system here (which on the national level is not at all a democracy despite our collective conceit) is such that the people who insist on this new form of isolationism maintain a kind of stranglehold on the national government. And of course it remains to be seen if anyone can make a convincing cad to reverse this momentum. Obama did. But who now?
I understand the economic reasons for the EU, and while I despair at seeing the retrenching of dangerous nationalist trends, I always thought one of the greatest and most inspiring aspects of it is how European countries,all of whom waged war with each other since the Roman Empire, chose to not just stop but to go so far as to share the same money. I regard this as one of the most forward thinking collective acts in all history. Maybe even the most of all.
But again, what is it you propose?
