In the great Western democracies it seems that the eejits are taking over, the worst kind of eejits indeed, the ones with a nationalist streak.

Nationalism, as we have observed in relation to IRA/Sinn Fein, is eejitry taken to such an extreme that it becomes a form of evil. And with Brexit in Britain and Trump in America, the profound truth of this can be witnessed.

These British nationalists and their American brethren are the barbarians at the gates of the empires, howling at the grandees within who have become so decadent, they can hardly even stir themselves any more to sign the orders handed to them by the money men.
