Failure of Occidental Empires Mimic Failures of Eastern Empires - Cannot govern in Freedom

Reader comment on item: Middle East Geopolitics
in response to reader comment: The main problem is Western empire

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jan 16, 2022 at 19:23

One of the reasons that liberals and conservatives in the eastern realms find they cannot function in the western scheme of things is that freedom is not allowed since being improperly understood, it is not allowed. America, having at one time the best government in which freedom was protected, was abused and attacked by all sorts of opposing opinions, even from within; and its freedom was sold to the ideologies that it stood against from within. Guess whose fault is that? People that did not appreciate freedom, but instead mistook freedom as a means to take advantage for the cause of greed and avarice.
This got into the government of the most free people of history (America's economic model was surpassed by none-a perfect victim) and now see what the world must contend with in failed empires. That's all which is left; left being the operative word. The problem witht the oriental mindset is that they never got it right; they've no where to go. There's only one place remaining that has a chance; but it requires a kingdom mentality: see? It is the only place outstanding that requires freedom of choice; but who is looking for that now?
