Synopsis: America has made a habit of exporting democracy at the point of the bayonet. While not as lethal, cultural trends and products exported can be toxic, too. They, moreover, displace and contaminate indigenous cultures. For example: Wokeism is made in America, is entirely toxic, and, sadly, suffers no supply chain disruptions in its spread. Wokeism is a product of a distorted and deformed American marketplace of ideas. Alas, there is always a libertarian who imagines a free and vibrant marketplace of ideas worthy of defending, where there is only coercions and cruelty. “The woke movement could be the next great U.S. cultural export—and it is going to do many other countries some real good,” waxes Tyler Cowen, an economist at George Mason University.

DAVID VANCE is one of the most outspoken, fearless political commentators in the UK and bears the scars for it. Having been in front-line politics as Deputy Leader of the UK Unionist Party for some years, he was delighted to oppose the anti-democratic Belfast Agreement and the Clintonian-Blair forces behind that. He even wrote a book about it all called “Unionism Decayed” (2008). David has been a successful businessman for decades and prides himself on his independence. He has turned in stellar appearances on ALL mainstream UK political programs, before being … cancelled. He doesn’t care! He and ilana mercer have joined forces to create the punch-in-the-gut HARD TRUTH channel. Contacts: https://gettr.com/user/davidvance & https://gab.com/DAVIDVANCE
