A good friend just sent me a link to the video shown below. In it, Oprah Winfrey interviews Donald Trump and asks him about the possibility of running for president. His responses to her questions are not much different than what we have heard in his campaign speeches. The surprising thing about this interview is that it took place twenty-five years ago.
What his answers have told me is that not much has changed in twenty-five years. I am certain that is why Trump resonates with many people in America, he is just as sick of the same old same old as we are. His winning attitude and determination to make our allies pay a price for our defending them, or giving them complete industries without any remuneration is right on the money.
The new world order that Progressives like Hillary and Obama continue to push down our throats is something we see in Star Wars. Yet, in the movie even though the world is united into one big governing body they always seem to be putting down internal revolutions while sending Starships into the galaxy to fight off the evil in the universe. Somehow, that doesn’t seem like it is any better, or different, than what we are dealing with today.
What George Lucas has not given us in his Star Wars films is a look at what life is like on planet Earth. Maybe I should take that on as my next alternative history project. If ever I complete the book I started over a year ago I will attempt a story depicting Life on Earth during the Star Wars Era. I think I will need to drink a lot more wine to get those visions going.
