Brent McGregor I agree with just about everything you have said, Steven, except for one little thing.
Political movements around the world have learned to use tribalism as a way of destablising governments, create chaos, and accumulating political power by aligning themselves with something they think they can control.
By exporting terrorism, we are exporting tribalism, and it is the high octane crack cocaine of political power.
Alexander had enough sense to not to export tribalism, but rather appease and contain. We have the whole of Europe being overrun and out populated by these tribes, and the politicians think that if they appease them within the European borders that the tribes will become willing slaves to their political will. Instead, the Eurocrats have brought death and destruction to themselves.
