- The primary dividing line of this election is globalization, specifically neoliberal globalization, and more specifically the plight of the working class in the wake of free trade. Trump very explicitly rejects free-trade globalization and its many transnational practices, protocols and treaties, Trump’s claim is that while neoliberal globalization has generated unprecedented quantities of money wealth, the lion’s share of that wealth has gone to a few rich thereby immensely widening the gap between the haves and the have-nots.

A power vaccum has fueled frustration and created an entirely new breed of disenfranchised voters who are fed up with the status quo. They believe politicians in Washington pay more attention to special interests groups and powerful lobbyists writing checks to their next campaigns than listening to the people back home who sent them to Washington in the first place. These are real people, their anger is palpable, and it’s not going away anytime soon.

America is in decline. There are some that still attempt to deny this, but the reason why Donald Trump’s campaign slogan has so strongly resonated with the American people is because deep inside citizens realize that America is not as great as it used to be.

The Slovak Presidency comes at a time when the European Union finds itself in an unprecedented situation. The negative outcome of the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU has presented us with a new challenge; for the first time in history, we are required to concern ourselves with the practicalities and political ramifications of a Member State leaving the EU. At this juncture, it is vital that the EU engage in self-reflection.

In this post-satire political landscape, the British Prime Minister quit because he didn’t want Brexit, the two most vocal Brexiteers have decided not to continue on either, and everyone is up in arms about why the Leader of the Opposition won’t quit as well. Remember when taking responsibility for one’s actions was part of the job description of politicians – particularly prime ministers? Cameron, Farage and Johnson collectively crafted one of the most tumultuous weeks in the history of modern British politics.
