Beyond the Cusp

Conservatives Need be More Understanding, Really?

 

Bear with us as we cover a delicate subject of the feelings of rage from our leftist adversaries, or shall we be kind and refer to them as our friendly rivals on the political battlefield. (If liberal-leftist-speak, as Orwell might have referred to it, bothers you then please take advice and skip until after a familiar picture below.) Liberals, those conservatives attempt to malign by calling them leftists or liberal extremists, are simply more in touch with their feelings than are those stuffy and self-critical conservative cold-hearted elitists. These conservatives stand aloof in their steel and glass towers demanding that police go forth and do what they are too afraid to do, stand before liberals and defend their man, the clown in the White House. They know their chosen leader is nothing but a loud mouthed, brash, ignorant, uneducated lout and a bully whose chosen weapon is obscene tweets. All they are capable of doing is claiming they were just as upset four years ago but were too busy making money and suppressing their emotions to be capable of any noticeable reactions. They admit all they were capable of was calling for their tools, the Republicans in Congress, to obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. Now they are crying in their cold potato soup, Vichyssoise they call it. Then they follow this up with salted and spiced snails, Escargot they call it, and finally the entrée of raw ground beef with a nice raw egg dropped in the middle, Steak Tartare they call it, and their belief and trust in the man they bought into the White House is just as fake as their names for what most would call inedible foods. They claim they cannot understand the people demonstrating the fact they stole an election using the tricks of bending the rules in their favor while they know that factually Hillary won the popular vote and in any real democracy, not this farm ridden excuse where they use rubes to elect their excuse for a man, she would be sitting properly in the White House and the United States would not be the laughing stock of the world across Europe. Perhaps we need to spell out the reasons behind what they are witnessing and the why’s and wherefores’ of what is being called the Resistance and what they are labeling the hyper-political rejectionism being committed by Democrats in Congress.

 

First let’s talk about the political reaction in Congress, which is no different than the refusals of the Republicans to cooperate with President Obama for eight years. Despite what they point to of the Republicans working to assist with the budget proposals which kept the government operating, they cannot deny that many of the most innovative and important pieces of legislation passed without either a single Republican vote or a mere smattering of Republicans willing to do the people’s work. They invented obstructionism during the Obama Presidency where they never did accept that a minority person of color was in the White House. If they thought there was even a glimmer of a chance, they would have brought impeachment charges against President Obama their hatred was so obviously visceral. They seethed with disgust. They thought they were sophisticated and it did not show, but we could see it on plain display in their every word dripping with bile. Their ridicules in private, we heard as some could not hide their feelings and shared the poisons spoken by their friends in their smoke-filled rooms where the money passes hands to make the decisions against the will of the people. The same way the money passed hands and the fix was put in to deny Hillary her prize, her due of the Presidency because they simply hate.

 

Now we are protesting using legal demonstrations and they are hyperventilating over these displays of popularist emotions. We are in the streets giving display to the feelings of the majority of Americans that there is an unfit lunatic now representing our once proud nation. For the past eight years Americans could hold their heads high as we were represented by grace, charm and intelligence and now we cringe at every display of raw idiocy and hate pouring from the centers of power in the White House. His Twitter posts are an embarrassment which apparently nobody on his staff is capable of reeling Trump in and getting Trump under any control whatsoever. Even typing his name is difficult but we are liberals and thus we are the polite and wonderful people who are really trying to be accepting, but you make it so difficult. We understand when you ask how could we nominate Hillary, but what is your excuse, Trump? I mean like really? And conservatives ask why the left is out protesting. Can you actually have any doubt as to why with Trump in the White House? Then there are the claims of violence when obviously the violence is being orchestrated from those shady backroom deals with the cigar smoke and the bourbon whiskey glasses ringing as you toast the brilliance of sending ninjas to discredit the throngs of peaceful protesters. Our protesters would never partake of such violence and have you noticed that the stores they attack are all owned by our supporters such as Starbucks etc. Why would these thugs have been attacking our friends? These are obviously hateful extreme right wing agitators using rioting in order to discredit lawful and righteous demonstrations against this thug and illegitimate usurper sitting in Hillary’s Oval Office.

 

But let us set your minds at ease. We are not interested in a revolution or any other improper forceful reaction as we are law-abiding citizens who love our nation. What we desire is for our rightful government to be returned to the rightful majority of citizens who elected the true President of the United States, Hillary Clinton, the only correct President who was chosen by the majority of all the people. You know the Electoral College is an archaic invention of white slave owners simply to protect their white privilege and position of wealthy land owners and the elitists of society. They invented the Electoral College as a tool for the propagation of their rule while giving the people a feeling of voting rights and power. It was invented to give a visage of fairness while preserving the rule of the White wealthy class and their proper place ruling over the lesser peoples. We understand that you have fudged the system because it failed to prevent the election of a President who was not of the White privileged class and you have worked the system to assure that no minority ever makes it into the White House again. That is why the majority of Americans have been dispossessed by your Electoral College and you have usurped power placing a buffoon into power as he is really under your control while giving the image of an uncontrollable child on a temper tantrum. We are not fooled and we will prevent your oppressive white privileged power play to forever change the America we love and the America we have worked so hard and long to bring into the world of nations and to give all the people the right to power. And this has been the tone of all too many leftist news and internet locations and outlet since Election Day.

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu

This was the Meeting of the Minds from Yesterday
May it Appeared for all Intents and Purposes to have been a
Mind Melding with both Leaders on the Same Page
For Fulfilling all the Promises from San Remo Forward

 

Now for a more centered look and our regular readers can breathe easier, we have not gone over to the dark side of the farce. The left believed the media predictions after the resounding reelection of President Obama and did not notice their losses in virtually every other level of governance from the local dog catcher to governors to Congress and virtually everywhere with the once glaring exception, the major cities. There, where these leftists live among the more normal liberals who are just as much victims to the leftist hijacking of their Democrat Party as the nation is to their destructive members of “The Revolution” being waged across the cities and university campuses. Do not be fooled, they mean revolution and are fully intending to do whatever it may take to install their idea of a perfect governance, fascist leftist government where conservatives are kept subordinate and their leadership sent off to the reeducation camps. While the rest of the United States have been struggling with a lethargic economy and elevated unemployment while the level of workforce participation became more a measurement of workfarce participation with ever more people, largely millennials, finding there no entry level positions and the job market all but closed to them despite having college degrees in the social sciences which they had been assured were highly valued. There are those surprised that their major of Late Fourteenth Century German Love Sonnets does not actually qualify them for any position outside teaching Late Fourteenth Century German Love Sonnets, of which there are almost three dozen positions in the world. Now they are angry and when they were sold that Hillary Clinton would remedy this situation and when she lost they lost it. Some were caught up in the movement which has offered them a new solution, taking the power they lack.

 

There is a problem which the conservatives have foolishly believed will work itself out as these demonstrators get tired and lose interest and return to whatever occupied their time previously. Were these regular people with regular jobs, the demonstrations and the riots would have already dwindled out as have previous such demonstrations. Perhaps we can remind people of the former renditions of what we are seeing. There had been the Occupy Wall Street and the Other 99% otherwise called the Anti 1 Percenters and then all the way over in Israel, the Cottage Cheese Demonstrations which were thankfully ended by that demand to return to classes when the university classes resumed. All of these demonstrations started and continued through mid and late summers as there were large numbers of unemployed and bored college students and an equal number of easily amused high school students who would come and protest during the day and return to their suburban homes red-eyed each night. The attraction of free drink and drugs proved irresistible to these kids and their parents seemed oblivious to their activities or possible a calm supportive feeling that this was simply a phase. Well, now there are groups with paid full-time organizers and often seed moneys to be spread to those who are capable of bringing with them additional bodies to swell the ranks. These riots and the demonstrations within which they are being couched are not about to die down and their anger is palpable. They mean revolution or at least their leaders and the moneyed interests fueling these actions believe. The police being told to stand off and allow the rioters as well as the demonstrators free ranging freedoms is intended to simply allow the demonstrations to grow and for larger and larger groups to cross over from the demonstrations to the rioting and joining the black clad ninja warriors of the left.

 

This is the beginning of a revolution and there is only one meaningful means of bringing it to an end. This is where the good news arises and President Donald Trump may just be the antidote. The one thing which will rob these demonstrations and thus the rioting of numbers would be a thriving economy which is why we will witness these demonstrations attempt to do whatever is required to prevent a return to prosperity, at least in and around the major cities. There will be efforts to destroy any growth of the economy in the cities with the intention of causing economic collapse of the cities and soon thereafter the suburbs as well hoping to collapse the job market and building the discontent. This is being orchestrated in order to well the ranks of those who are unemployed, underemployed and dispossessed in the society and thus the disenchanted willing to join “The Revolution” allowing for a potential real revolution. When the point is finally reached that the cities are starting to be burned by the rioters and the White House has to act and send in National Guard to quell the violence we will hear the screams of fascism. What is so ridiculously pathetic is that those who want a revolution are intent on installing an actual fascist governance which suspends elections with them never to return in the lifetimes of the cheering throngs thinking they have won not realizing what they have borne. Trump will not only not be remaining in office one second longer than elected, he may desire getting out of the hot seat after a single term and who could blame him. Even if he is not as wealthy as he claims, he still earns more than the Presidential salary he would be receiving if he were not giving it to charity. Trump has no desire to be king despite the accusations coming from the left. He simply may be a victim of his campaign’s success and counting the days until he is a free man again or he might be bathing in the believed admirations he thinks he is receiving, either way he will leave once his time is done. With any luck he will be able to jumpstart the American economic engine which has been fuel starved for the past decade and to release the horses that charge the money flow from their strangling regulations allowing them to run free and spread wealth in their wake. The American economy is likely just waiting to be permitted to jump at the opportunities if only permitted unfettered access to the drivers of economic freedom. This is job one just as Trump claimed during the campaign and the faster the regulational drawback and the release of the investment cycle through tax rate adjustments permitting for the easy movement of monies from investment to investment and across different means of entrepreneurial enterprises, the faster the jobs will multiply and the sooner there will be more jobs than people to fill them. This will allow for a healthy new immigration system streamlined benefiting the needs of the nation to bring in the people required to even further enhance the capital investment cycles and increased profit margins, the best means of a healthy economy. These increases will result in greater funds and possibly ending the yearly debt cycle which has strangled the United States and doubled the debt over the last decade. The future is full of hope providing that President Trump’s team are prudent and allow for an untethered economic environment and a return to American exceptionalism which will serve not only the United States but hopefully serve as an example which the rest of the industrialized world will follow, though Europe may be mired in their own sorry history and bad choices of late.

If We Lose then Everybody Loses

 

The demonstrations (riots) occurring across the United States largely in the major cities, especially Democrat Party strongholds claiming that Trump is not, can not and never will be their President refuse to abate. Apart from this being a definite example of delusional denial, it is also much ado about nothing as the rules on how the office of President is chosen has been known for well over two-hundred years and all contenders understood the rules going in. It is not like Hillary Clinton has even shown the slightest designs or desires to challenge the results. There has been a number of disgusting results turn from these examples of bad behavior with one of the most egregious was the beating of a fifteen year old Rockville, Maryland High School student by numerous classmates for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. This was far from the only casualty from the protests where stores have been breached with their windows smashed and merchandise stolen. In one case a Starbucks Coffee store was broken into and coffee mugs were stolen and used as projectiles thrown at the police. Numerous other reports have surfaced of Trump supporters or just some refusing to join the protests being pummeled and beaten simply for not agreeing with the mob. For those who agree with these activities I have a simple question, what would your reaction have been if Hillary Clinton had won the Electoral College vote but lost narrowly in the popular vote and Trump supporters took to the streets rioting and beating Hillary supporters? If that would have struck you as indefensible, as I would hope it would, why are the current malcontents then tolerated. If Hillary supporters and all who voted for any of the candidates other than Trump, especially respected members of those groups, would come out and denounce these rioters then perhaps the United States could start working towards healing.

 

Civility is the basis for civilization and what allows disparate groups to coexist despite differing opinions. Elections are presumably the peaceful means for choosing leaders which has presumably been accepted as a replacement for generals or others leading their band of armed insurrectionists and taking the seat of power by force. That is the alternative which these demonstrators, especially those causing damage and beating anyone thought to be from the opposition, and the reason elections were initiated. Changing government by revolution every time a sizeable and well-armed group decided they should lead coming in and murdering the current leaders and destroying much of the capital city and sometimes leading to a major civil war destroying much of the kingdom all just to make a transition in power might be considered paying too high a price when compared to simply voting. Is this the system which is now being proposed by those rioting in the streets? Do any of them really believe they are going to get their way and Hillary Clinton will suddenly become the next President because they are rioting and destroying property? Lastly, what gives with the governors and mayors who are permitting such lawlessness? And lastly, enough with the ridiculous Trump supports the KKK or the Nazis or white supremacists of any stripe. That is no more true than Hillary Clinton being called a Communist or an Anarchist simply because some well-know Communist sympathizers or Anarchists came out supporting her, as I am sure there were at least a few. Just because some malcontent from any extreme on the political spectrum comes out in support does not make the candidate a supporter of the extremists represented by the particular claim of support. We do not control which crazies support a candidate and often cannot fathom even why there might be any reason for such support. Donald Trump has little to no actions in his past which infer in the slightest that he has a bigoted bone in his body. He is not a racist, anti-Semite, homophobe, sexist or even misogynist, though some might try to argue the last due to his action in decades past when male-female relations were quite different than today.

Then there is the claim that the Electoral College is unfair as it grants a resident of Wyoming as carrying greater weight than a resident of California or Texas or New York or even Alaska. Oddly enough, that was the whole idea of the Electoral College. When the Constitution was drawn up the founding Fathers realized quite quickly that any candidate for President if they could win New York and Virginia by wide margins could lose nine of the remaining eleven states and still win the election. This, in their thoughtful minds, seemed to give Virginia and New York far too much power and they needed all the states to sign onto the new Constitution. Remember the Federated States of America was the dysfunctional governance where the Federal government was too weak to run the nation and the country was disintegrating. The Constitution was the grand compromise which gave the smaller states significant additional representation in choosing a President simply by adding two Electoral Votes, one for each Senator, to the number of Representatives and thus making it so all the states would be represented in the White House. As the United States grew and Wyoming became the least settled state per square mile, Wyoming receives the greatest benefit of the Electoral College system and California is likely harmed the most followed by Texas, but it all works in the end as Wyoming still has but three Electoral Votes and is seldom the deciding state. We need remember that without the Electoral College system the United States would never have come into being and the Federated States of America would have dissolved into individual states and more resembled Europe economically, militarily and in all too many other ways, Alaska would still be a part of Russia, Hawaii would still be a Spanish colony or an independent nation, Texas would either be its own nation or still part of Mexico after Santa Anna beat the Texas militias. And Wyoming would still be Wyoming all alone and pretty much ignored as nobody would want to take the time or energy to conquer her. Wyoming would be pretty much unchanged as any invading army would need to defeat a number of states before reaching Wyoming and then would stand little chance against the mountain men who know their woodlands and highlands very well and live as they please even now. Lastly, Wyoming has some of the most breathtaking views that can be found anywhere within the United States, and that comes from having lived there.

 

In closing, can we do something which has gotten the United States through tougher and more distressing times than anything a President Trump can cause. The country is nowhere near as divided as many seem to wish to have it appear. You might have heard of this other time when brother took up arms against brother and the nation was divided into the blue and the grey and we fought a Civil War, a real Civil War and not just civil unrest. We realize you believe you are fighting a civil war, but trust that you are not and should you actually become that violent, well, let us just warn that you would not like how that would end. The United States survived President Grant, it survived President James K. Polk who did not even campaign but was elected due to two things, the party he represented had the election in the bag and his opponent ran on the slogan of, “Who the h3ll is James K. Polk?” Perhaps if his opponent, who is just as nameless today as then, had campaigned with his name in a slogan instead of his opposition, perhaps he might have won but instead all anyone knew was both sides were preoccupied with James K. Polk. He ran against Henry Clay who was one of the founding members of the Whig Party. We even survived a President who pretended to have a middle name, well, middle initial because all the great Presidents had a middle name. Thus we had President Harry S (for nothing) Truman sometimes stated by his contemporaries as Harry ask for nothing Truman because persuading Harry Truman was wasted effort as he drew his own course and never deviated from a decision and was the reason for a sign on his desk which faced the door reading, “The Buck Stops Here.” We survived a President who was an avid big game hunter, went hunting with the Czar of Russia and spent as little time in Washington as possible, a man who despite great wealth gathered a group of roughnecks and went to war because it would be jolly fun, yep, President Theodore Roosevelt. The United States has survived virtually every kind of President imaginable, Harvard educated, Yale educated and self-taught, raised in luxury and poverty, military men and pacifists and somehow the United States has developed a life of its own which manages to always return to a central pillar based on equal freedoms being granted to ever wider portions of the nation’s peoples. One example was due to President elect Donald Trump who opened his Palm Beach resort called Mar-a-Lago; he insisted that it be opened to everybody including specifically Jews and Blacks, something never permitted in “exclusive” resorts, clubs and other venues breaking this barrier which held into the 1990s. The outrageous fact here is not that it was Donald Trump who broke the barrier and fought a running battle with the city officials for over a decade because of his inclusive policies but that Palm Beach had such rules in place into the 1990s and was still regarded as an all American resort town, now that is unbelievable and a truth that needs more emphasis. Still, if we all calm down we will survive the coming four years and then we can review whether Donald Trump was more President or clown and if clown, replace him and get on with life. Thank you.

The Potentially Unavoidable Apocalypse

 

There is a coming apocalyptic war which will spill throughout Europe into the Middle East and may result at some point to one side using nuclear weapons should that option become available and there is no reason to believe it would not as making a nuclear weapon in modern times is just a few steps higher than making a weapon with normal high explosives. Thermonuclear weapons might require a small cadre of dedicated physicists but a nuclear device such as the ones used against Japan are within the ability of many intelligent high school graduates as their construction is available on the internet for any enterprising individual to research. The difficulty, if there is one, is gathering the fissile materials; from there it is a simple matter of machining and choosing your designs. This is a horrible truth to place over the heads of millions of innocents who will pay dearly when the coming war enters its main and determinative battle phase. Imagine the war in Syria and spread it over the better part of three continents and potentially throughout the entirety of the globe with few exceptions. Add in a final set of battles using nuclear weapons, initially the fifteen to twenty-five kilotons and soon after breaking into megatons and thermonuclear weapons such as the type held by major nuclear powers and available to any nations willing to put the necessary effort into their production and there easily could be some non-State factions such as the Muslim Brotherhood or neo-Nazi supremacists who have sufficient resources, talent and safe areas of operations that they also could produce such weapons once they gain access to the necessary materials. Before such a calamity reaches the doorsteps of our lives we need to ask where this war could begin.

 

The sparking point could be simply anywhere in Europe and it will not begin with any nation as much as a civil war started by the populations themselves. The triggering point would be a massive multi-city coordinated terrorist event where the people in the stricken localities start a war with the claimed intent of vindicating those murdered in the terror attack. Such an event could start the spiral into a more general war with many people caught in the crossfire similarly to what happened in Syria except this would have spread across Europe city by city until it involved national armies breaking from their officers and stepping in to assist the people, or at least that was their intention. Once tanks start to roll on the streets the civil unrest would enter a completely different phase which would snowball until it became another war starting in Europe but this will range far outside of Europe. Many of the terror enterprises are loosely interwoven and could respond to the escalation taking over the military hardware and troops of sympathetic or easily toppled rulers in order to gain the use of military weapons. This could soon spread in such a manner as to include many European state actors pulled into a conflict which would be quickly getting completely beyond the control of normal safeguards as both societies begin to call for the saving of their way of life, their freedoms and the customs and other particulars they hold dear and are comfortably familiar with. Once it becomes nation against nation it will then call upon like-minded or treaty bound allies into the fray and from there it does not stop easily. People discount such events leading to such a conflagration but as they have not studied history they are not aware on what simple actions have dragged humanity into costly and often destabilizing conflicts. Take the second most costly war in history, World War I. This war began with the assassination of a royal family head, the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo by Achille Beltrame as the Archduke and his wife were shot while riding in their car after taking a wrong turn. The real attempt to assassinate Archduke Francis Ferdinand had been set along his scheduled route but a sympathizer saw him passing his location and took advantage of the opportunity believing he was serving his oppressed people and never expecting the horrors of World War I to come as a result of a few bullets into one world leader and his wife. The people called for revenge and soon thereafter it got beyond any local conflict and the entire globe even to include Japan were honoring treaties or simply choosing one side or the other. World War I was more about honoring treaties than revenge for an assassination and that is what is frightening about the world today.

Mutual defense treaties which require entire groups of nations to jump into a conflict once a member demands assistance exist and NATO is simply one such treaty. NATO, as an example, could be called to assist any member state who has become embroiled in a conflict which they feel they might require greater assistance. NATO had an interesting set of members of which Turkey is one of the longstanding members due to their strategic control of the Bosphorus Straights which control access from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea and from there the Atlantic Ocean and the world. These narrow waterways were essential for Russia to deploy her ships and thus the NATO powers bribed and forced Turkey into NATO in case there became a time when the West would desire to blockade the Russian Black Sea fleet from gaining access to the Mediterranean Sea. It really is that simple and Turkey just sent tanks into Syria. The picture of how an intervention can be conducted under the idea, which is obvious when one looks at the bombings in Turkey, which violent attacks originate from the terror groups within Syria who are adversarial to Turkey and their government and President Erdogan in particular. What would be the ramifications should Turkey’s President Erdogan be assassinated or an attempt was made on his life but failed only grievously wounding him but leaving him to survive. By the time he came out of surgery which saved his life the war could have already been started and Turkish jets bombing targets in Syria, specifically the western holdout areas of the Alawites and Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad. It is also the base for the Russian fleet in Latakia, Syria. We may remember the near tipping point reached when a single Russian fighter jet was shot from the skies over Turkey, or at least seemingly over Turkey as it was attacking within Syria and these fast aircraft have large turning radii. Now imagine an airstrike which missed the Syria barracks in Latakia and instead struck the Russian docs sinking two Russian warships and killing fifty or a hundred Russian sailors. How long before Putin declares war on Turkey who then calls in their NATO marker and instant World War as Russia too has such agreements with the likes of China, Iran, some Arab League nations and other eastern Asian nations. The Arab League would necessarily side with Russia believing that Turkey would be incapable of standing against such forces and not figuring on Europe and the United States and Anglosphere nations backing Turkey. Doubtful such will happen, but there was a presumed coup in Turkey recently and that could have turned out much different if it had been a serious coup threatening the governance.

 

One item that bears keeping in mind, wars seldom start where or how we expect them to. They start with a relatively insignificant shot from one rifle or crossbow or a sword placed within some leader of a following religiously, politically, or even a cause. The Arab Spring, or Arab Winter as we had predicted, began with one vegetable hawker committing suicide in protest of unfair taxes and laws and self-immolating and Tunisia exploded followed by Egypt and down the row of dominoes giving us Syria and also Libya thanks to some overactive interventions from far away in Washington D.C. and someone leading from behind and an overanxious Secretary of State seeking another feather for a Presidential run seeing and grasping what appeared to be a golden opportunity for nation building. Somewhere in these plans things unraveled and we have a dysfunctional Libya with warring tribes and terrorist entities. It, like Syria, is an open hotbed and perfect location for a terrorist group such as the Islamic State to manufacture the bombs of their choosing. One has to figure that at some point the Islamic State has come into weapons such as nerve gas or even radiological materials of weapons grade uranium. One can only guess what their true capabilities might include. Once a nuclear device has been manufactured, it would easily be deliverable to anywhere in Europe including Great Britain. It could be built and concealed inside a cement truck and hidden under a load of dried cement resulting from a traffic holdup which allowed the load to set in the truck. Who would chip away at half a ton or more of cement to inspect the vehicle and once inside Turkey it could easily transverse the entirety of Europe taking it to any European capital city or large metropolitan area for a nuclear terror attack. What comes after such an attack? Yep, there is no telling but it would not be good, that much we can count upon.

 

Riots can spread and become to have a life of their own and who knows where such could lead. Terrorism can spark unrest which could easily get out of hand. Ultra-nationalist right wing parties are gaining strength throughout Europe and these parties preach an active approach to what they term is an invasion, and who knows for sure, they could be right. Can anyone tell me the results of passing a law to expunge a nation of all non-citizens referring to them as a risk and a threat which the country no longer believes they can allow? Should one incident get out of control with some troops opening fire on unarmed civilians which they are gathering for deportation under the auspices of the new citizens’ only laws, what would come next? Once one nation cleans their population of all foreign noncitizens and shipped them over the border to the next location? Where would this lead once the majority of a continent has cleansed themselves of everyone who is not just like their pure racial idea of their country and there are a few million dispossessed people, what happens to what is now an enraged army of people? Currently the Middle East and Northern Africa are roiling points and Europe is not that far from exploding into riots and other uncontrolled violence any one of which could result in some very undesirable turns of events leading to greater areas of violence stopping who knows where assuming they stop at all. The world at present is a powder keg and it would not take much to light the fuse, assuming it has not already been lit.
