What you call the liberal world order has always been nothing but American imperialism, dollar dictatorship, etc. When the USSR dismantled itself the US took advantage of it to spread NATO to new territories. But that’s all. What the US neglected was that the world order was exploding already with decolonization, with the emergence of Asia first and then Latin America (in spite of the Pinochet-like US rattles and puppets) and now Africa. NATO is doomed because it is used by the US as a tool to impose more US imperialism in Iraq, in Syria, in Afghanistan, and if they could in South East Asia or even in China. NATO is not liberal meaning centered on freedom, but liberal meaning centered on free unregulated capitalism, and that means widening the capitalist market and imperialism. This is doomed to fail. So good riddance. Now we could discuss if Trump is following this historical trend or if he is trying to impose another type of US imperialism — à la Chinese — through his commerce and free unregulated capitalism, hence his US wild market economy. I doubt this Bannon-inspired and Bannon-implemented policy in Europe will be successful. How many countries are for their own Brexit, that will never occur anyway?
