Many Americans think Obama became President for one thing, and one thing alone – the power, and his recent words hint toward this strongly. According to our Commander-in-Chief, the world is sick of the “old order,” and is ready, and in desperate need of a new one.
According to Politico, Obama said during a fundraiser in Seattle this week:
“People are anxious. Now, some of that has to do with some big challenges overseas,” said Obama, adding, “But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria … to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise … to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza….”
“Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people. … But here in the United States, what people are also concerned about is the fact that although the economy has done well in the aggregate, for the average person it feels as if incomes, wages just haven’t gone up; that people, no matter how hard they work, they feel stuck.”
Now, Obama has made it clear that there are certain aspects of American ideology that he strongly disagrees with. Perhaps the most prevalent is that he can’t do exactly as he pleases and the people have far too much power, including guns, God forbid they revolt.
But this “new world order” seems to branch out further than just the United States, but rather a government of and for the world as a whole, so long as participating countries willingly go along. Who knows what will happen to those that don’t comply, I mean, we’ve all seen how relations between the U.S. and Russia have childishly deteriorated on behalf of the incompetence in the White House.
What do you guys think though – could this simply be Obama’s evolved way of saying there is more “change” to be made, or could he mean something a bit more devious? Feel free to let us know your thoughts on this in the comments below.
