  2. There will be wars one way or another. If we've learned anything from the duration of humanity, that is one. If you think for one second that if the US fully and completely pulled away from foreign affairs, with no strings attached whatsoever, that Russia wouldn't launch full-scale invasions of Ukraine and the Baltics, you're insane. Same with China and Taiwan. While the US has no specific attachments to Taiwan, China knows that the US will funnel in weapons to aid the Taiwanese if something bad would truly happen.

I was speaking on the latter in general, not whatever charlatanism Trump, himself, has behind claims to champion it.

And, even this event would not stop the decline that's killing the American Civilization, no matter what form of Government it takes. At the time of the murder of Caesar. Rome was on the rise as a civilization, so the results were very different.
