have been following the many perspectives taken on the nazipopulist in the
white house - time and again though i ve seen people repeating trumpism is
neoliberalism to the max, that is avatar of international capital or
whatnot.

not so, 2016 puts an end to the phase of total neoliberal hegemony
(1989-2008) and indeed dissolves the west under anglo-saxon leadership that
had come into being in 1945-1947. furthermore its approach to world
politics is neither neocon nor realist (certainly not international
kehoane-style) but isolationist. It starts from the premise that the US is
no longer the hegemonic world power and seeks a nationalist policy to
reassert its primacy. I'd like to write more, but i hope a table suffices.
