What we are witnessing today is the rise of regressive domestic and global agendas in the US and Europe to reverse human progress. These frantic efforts to undermine a progressive agenda that started to empower individuals, communities, societies who were not part of the privileged culture is doomed to failure.
This resentment expressed by Far Right groups of the leveling of the playfiled is best articulated by the seminal work of Samuel Huntington, the Clash of Civilizations, and more so in his less known work, Who Are We? The Challenge to America National Identity.
The drive to stop the flow of history is utterly stupid, and has indeed been tried repeatedly throughout history. The privileged elites have always tried to maintain the status quo and prevent other groups and societies to level the playfield, only to discover that their efforts were subversive, counterproductive, and in vein.
Trump and his supremacist elk cannot seal the borders or push Americans and immigrants who they don't like at will. They will sooner or later discover that they are swimming against the flow of history, and that they have chosen the losing side of the march of human civilization.
