The Unraveling of America

The UK BBC nominated this Rolling Stone essay for a prize:
Wade Davis holds the Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk at the University of British Columbia.

The nation that defeated smallpox and polio, and led the world for generations in medical innovation and discovery, was reduced to a laughing stock as a buffoon of a president advocated the use of household disinfectants as a treatment for a disease that intellectually he could not begin to understand. ...

and his [Trump's] dispensing of medical advice concerning the therapeutic use of chemical disinfectants,

No, that was a CNN/NYTimes hoax. Barack Obama and other Democrats talked about using injecting bleach to treat COVID-19, but Trump never said anything about it. He only referred to some legitimate medical research.

So Wade is either a moron, or pretending to be one.

Most of the essay is an argument that the USA was the world's greatest country in the 1950s, but has been declining in the past few decades. But then it complains about those with a similar opinion:

For many years, those on the conservative right in the United States have invoked a nostalgia for the 1950s, and an America that never was, but has to be presumed to have existed to rationalize their sense of loss and abandonment, their fear of change, their bitter resentments and lingering contempt for the social movements of the 1960s, a time of new aspirations for women, gays, and people of color.
So what countries does he like? The most White countries, like Canada and Denmark, of course.

Wade is a distinguished professor of Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk, so I guess he is trying to say that White Americans are at risk. He cannot blame non-whites, because such opinions are not tolerated at his university.

Joe Biden just said:

“This country is doomed.. it’s doomed. Not just because of African Americans, but because by 2040 this country is going to be minority white European. You hear me, minority white European.”
It is at 1:14:40. The source says the "quote is being taken out of context". Okay, I link to the full recording so that you can judge for yourself. He also says "All kidding aside. ... I am not mincing my words."

The context is that he is telling a bunch of Blacks (and saying "y'all" to them) that we need to make progress on race relations and equity. I think that is correct also, because we are headed for civil war otherwise.

The message is similar to that of many others I have quoted on this blog, such as a book published a century ago on The Passing of the Great Race.

I have also quoted Biden as saying that it is a good thing that non-white immigration is reducing Whites to being a minority. This guy is senile, but at least he has a clear-eyed view that he is working for the destruction of the White race.

Biden also argues that his team doesn't want to say anything about defunding the police until after the Jan. 5 Georgia election, because that is very unpopular with voters.
