From the opening statement this diatribe goes awry. “There’s a new Iron Curtain falling. Here’s a tiny observation. America and Britain are on the verge of forming something very much like the old Soviet Union.”

If you recall your history, the Iron Curtain kept people from leaving. If you left East Germany for the West, you were shot in the back by border guards. Our problem here is on a monthly basis more than a hundred thousand “breaking IN” to our country a month on the Southwest border alone: https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/stats/sw-border-migration

As for only two Capitalist countries left? What a joke. There are McDonald’s restaurants all over the world… Cola wars nearly everywhere, even in the remotes jungle villages…

Thanks for the good laugh.
