Geopolitical consultant and professor Ralph Schoellhammer breaks down globalism and how elite policies are colliding with reality. He argues that the intellectual class are full of themselves, don’t get the recognition they think they deserve, and they lack an existential struggle due to their extreme wealth. And so they are turning against their own civilization. He sees great reductions in living standards but famines in Europe unlikely. The complacent and spiritually emptied working class is the bigger problem. We have taken a sledgehammer to the cultural underpinnings of our civilization. He doesn’t think politicians like Meloni will change anything. The elites are humorless and we need to point out their insanity.
