Clothed in Purple

Belshazzar Redivivus

Remembering the Cold War and those years of the “Red Menace” and the nuclear arms race with its insane foreign policy of Mutually Assured Destruction and HUAC and the witch hunts of Senator Joe McCarthy and Marx and Lenin and Stalin and our obsessive fear of communism and Red China, it is beyond incredible that we have come to the point that economies of the world are shaken by machinations of China’s currency and the Chinese stock market. Throughout history every empire has had its rise and fall, including Egyptian and Assyrian and Babylonian and Persian and Roman and Holy Roman and Ottoman and Japanese and British and the ludicrous but incomprehensibly evil Thousand Year Reich and the Soviet Union, and I’m wondering who realizes what we’re living into the beginning of. 

Fools will puff up and cry “treason” but history speaks for itself when more Buick automobiles are built and sold in China than in the land of baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet, and a pathetically significant part of our national debt is to our great enemy China, and now the Chinese economy driving Wall Street. There it is: mene, mene, tekel, and parsin. Someone ages and ages hence will nod his head and write about us, wondering why we couldn’t read it. 

Chairman Mao's new suit.


When Better Automobiles Are Built, Buick Will Build Them. In China. (Daniel 5)
