Among other reasons to hate the American Empire, it was the shift from regional empire (North America / Caribbean / Pacific) to global empire in the wake of World War II that more than anything else transformed American identity. What’s more, the American Empire, which at that decisive point enveloped nearly the entire Western world, ideologically defined itself against National Socialism.
Long before we were born, the world that we live in today was fundamentally shaped and set in motion in those crucial decades between the 1920s and 1950s. The American ruling class, which was already liberal and capitalist in the Victorian sense, became antiracist, modernist and cosmopolitan. The American elite developed a globalist outlook. Jews climbed into the American elite in these decades. “Racism” became taboo between 1937 and 1945. “Anti-Semitism” became taboo at this same point. The ghost of Nazi Germany and the polarization it created has continued to haunt us ever since.
In the aftermath of World War II, Jim Crow came under assault. The American Empire had defined itself against the “racism” of Hitler’s Germany. We had created the U.N. and invited the entire world to stand in judgment of the United States. We competed with the Soviet Union which we rescued from Hitler’s Germany for the “hearts and minds” of the Third World during the Cold War. As a result, foreign policy dominated America for the next several decades and crucial decisions about domestic policy such as ending segregation and changing American immigration laws in order to transform America into a miniature version of the U.N. were motivated by the needs of the American Empire.
There isn’t much that is wrong in this country today which ultimately doesn’t trace back to imperialism and which doesn’t flow out of the needs of our decadent elites to maintain the American Empire. The deindustrialized Heartland was sacrificed to the foreign policy need to bind our new “allies” to the American Empire through favorable trade deals which rebuilt their industries. The Chinese Exclusion Act, for example, was repealed because China was an American ally against the Japanese. The opening wedge against America’s race-based immigration laws was bringing back war brides from the Philippines. We created the Deep State to crush internal and foreign dissent against American foreign policy.
If America had taken a different course and we had stayed true to our own values and continued to reject imperialism after the mistake that was World War I, the entire course of world history would have been altered. The same is true of the War Between the States and the Spanish-American War. Both of those wars ultimately had the long term effect of making us less White and less free.
