He also knows that Anti-Communism was the Trojan Horse for Fascists to operate in alliance with America during the Cold War, and all this to him is a good thing.
Rich is no dummy, I'm sure he's read all the right people.
Fuck me. Do we read different things? @Rich is anti communism and thinks we need to smash it down. His references are always about the ills of Stalinism, Mao and occasionally Castro. He hates Socialism in any shape or form and always sides with the imperial narrative when referencing points. He most definitely does not want the West to make peace with fascism and I suspect justifies all the wars we do to some extent because of that (he is anti Islam). Any user who thinks Cameron and May were geniuses who architect the perfect Brexit withdrawal, has a warped state of Patriotism and most of his posts belong back when The British Empire was a thing. Times have changed. Trying to shape the world to the Western image does not work and we should cooperate and not shape the world if we want to maintain the order. Otherwise the world will just align with China because otherwise to align with the West requires interference.
