Do you ever notice how almost all of the leaders of almost all the countries in the Western world, particularly in the English-speaking Western world, seem kind of the same? They’re what we call neoliberal. They’re all weak and fearful, if you think about it. And yet if you listen to them talk, you’d think they were omnipotent: ‚We’re going to reverse global climate change. We’re going to vaccinate the world. We’re going to end all human prejudice and replace it with equity. We’re going to spread democracy to the untutored nations with guns, and they’re going to love us for it. We can do all these things because we’re all-powerful. We’re like gods. You shall have no gods before us.‘
