If the liberal order is built on lies about universal man, equal and interchangeable individuals and the evil of “racism,” then we would expect the contradictions to start piling up as the system races to its logical conclusion. The system would start to malfunction. Disaffection would grow because reality and theory would become increasingly out of sync.
I can’t help but notice the contrast between the UK under liberalism and China under communism. Of all the nations in the world, the Chinese have the most confidence in their institutions. In contrast, the British and the Russians have the least confidence in their institutions. 80% of Chinese trust the media compared to 35% of the British. 90% of Chinese trust the government to 36% of the British. 69% of Chinese expect to be better off economically in five years compared to 27% of the British. While there is a trust gap between the general public and the “informed public” (the college educated middle class) everywhere in the world, the countries with the highest trust gap are Australia (23 points), France (21 points), Germany (20 points), UK (18 points), Spain and Ireland (17 points). The trust gap is only 8 points in the United States.
It is too bad that we can’t break these numbers down even further in Britain. I suspect there is a large divide between England and Scotland given the Brexit vote.
Note: Given these numbers, it isn’t surprising that we have recently seen things like Brexit and the collapse of the Labour Party. I wonder what the American numbers would look like without non-Whites.
