Growing up at aged 75 years

Growing up at aged 75 years involves re-examining and often dis-avowing the myths of national greatness with which you were fed in school

viz  Nationalism, Racism, Militarism, Imperialism,  Expansionism,  Cultural superiority, Determined ignorance or proud disdain regarding other nations or peoples.

Sadly President Trump and Prime Minister Johnson are too lazy or Anglo-Saxon nationalistic  to re-examine or disavow the myths (lies) which shaped their early education.

They have a 1910 view of political life which (for some) sounds good, but which is utterly inadequate for our 2019 world.

Johnson and Trump have a blinkered and myopic view of the politics, culture and economics of the 21st Century,

Their policies  could well destroy the "economic house of cards" which have sustained the democratic world since the Bretton Woods agreement of 1944.
