Anti-Trump mag says America should have been more like Canada
May 16, 2017
The New Yorker, a globalist-oriented magazine that advocates the overthrow of President Trump, suggests the American Revolution “was a mistake.”
An article by long-time staff writer Adam Gopnik says America might have been better off as a “social-democratic commonwealth” much like Canada, which is still technically a constitutional monarchy under Queen Elizabeth II.
“And what if [the American Revolution] was a mistake from the start?” He asks. “The Declaration of Independence, the American Revolution, the creation of the United States of America—what if all this was a terrible idea, and what if the injustices and madness of American life since then have occurred not in spite of the virtues of the Founding Fathers but because of them?”
“The Revolution, this argument might run, was a needless and brutal bit of slaveholders’ panic mixed with Enlightenment argle-bargle, producing a country that was always marked for violence and disruption and demagogy.”
In other words, Gopnik suggests we ignore all the good aspects of American history, including individual drive and innovation, to instead focus entirely on the bad because “muh globalism.”

You see, the globalists claim the idea of nation-states based on a shared culture is “obsolete,” despite the fact the technocratic system they propose is simply repackaged feudalism in which a handful of central banks control everything.
So of course they’re going to attack historical symbols of freedom which serve as a rallying point for resistance against globalism; that’s been one of their strategies since the days of empires when nationalists rebelled against their trans-continental rulers.
“He who becomes master of a city accustomed to freedom and does not destroy it, may expect to be destroyed by it, for in rebellion it has always the watch-word of liberty and its ancient privileges as a rallying point, which neither time nor benefits will ever cause it to forget,” famed 16th-century historian Niccolò Machiavelli wrote as a warning to the elite.
And, right on cue, Gopnik claimed the American Revolution “remains the last bulwark of national myth, but in sanctifying it we forget that it was more horrific than heroic.”
“Look north to Canada, or south to Australia, and you will see different possibilities of peaceful evolution away from Britain, toward sane and whole, more equitable and less sanguinary countries,” he wrote, failing to mention that both countries still have ties to the British monarchy and their citizens are more dependent on the government. “…Instead, an orderly development of the interior—less violent, and less inclined to celebrate the desperado over the peaceful peasant.”
That’s exactly what globalism wants: “peaceful peasants” who are too scared and powerless to rebel against the ruling elite.
It’s not surprising, then, that globalist magazines like the New Yorker and Foreign Policy advocate the overthrow of President Trump, who was duly elected by the people through a constitutional process.
“Ultimately, and the sooner the better, it will require our system and people to reject Trump and those surrounding him — who have already done so much to disgrace the offices they hold and undermine America’s standing in the world,” Foreign Policy’s David Rothkopf wrote.
DC insider Roger Stone warned on May 15 that the establishment will attempt to remove President Trump from office by claiming he has Alzheimer’s or another mental issue.
This, of course, is ironic given that the establishment wanted Hillary Clinton in office, who according to Secret Service sources did suffer from a neurological disorder.
