FROM ATLANTIC CHARTER TO AMBREXIT

23-01-2017

A hundred years ago in 1917 U.S. President Woodrow Wilson entered the First World War on the side of the Allied and Associated Powers. In so doing he inaugurated the American Era in world politics. True American leadership in cooperation with Great Britain came with the Atlantic Charter of 14 August 1941 ( text on this website under "Western Cooperation", nr. I. 4. 2.). It will defenitely come to an end when the two destroyers of Western-led multilateral cooperation, will meet in Washington D.C. Just read Donald Trump's Inaugural Address, attached to this item, and Theresa May's speech in Davos, attached to the European News Item "End of an Era". Both politicians take the populist approach of depicting the recent past in the blackest colours and promising a bright future based on resurgent nationalism: America First and Global Britain. It is a dangerous illusion to think that a return to bilateralism in trade can promote justice, development and peace.
