An American insurgency ransacks the Capitol, alliances fray, our systems are compromised by a sweeping Russian cyber operation, and Putin’s real long game continues unabated

This article is Part 1 of Order from Chaos: The Architecture of American Renewal Comes from a Mindset of Grey-Zone Superiority — a Great Power monograph which will be published in 5 parts between January 12-17. You can read the introduction here: https://www.greatpower.us/p/autocracy-ascends-the-cracks-of-democracy

but you can also read each section as a separate piece.

PART 1: Now we see why Putin bet on Trump

An American insurgency ransacks the Capitol, alliances fray, our systems are compromised by a sweeping Russian cyber operation, and a decade of unfettered Kremlin advance leaves Putin’s real long game unabated. Enough already.

* * * * *

From the moment we decided to minimize what it meant that Russian President Vladimir Putin helped Donald Trump become President of the United States — decided to muddle notions of Trump’s complicity with Russian intent, to ignore what it meant that Putin assessed Trump could be an accelerant for Kremlin objectives for America by being an accelerant of our own worst impulses — it was always going to end this way. A presidency steeped in ignominy, institutions adrift, the nation appearing a shambles, the temple of American democracy defiled — weakened along critical, vital seams as the world changes around us and may outpace us if we lose too many more steps.

It was always going to end like this not because Putin is a puppetmaster pulling strings from afar, and not because Trump is a new-age Manchurian candidate — but because we failed to understand what that intervention signaled, and then sped past the inflection point from which this outcome could have been deterred.

The Russian trolls will be here shortly to deny reality and attempt to fabricate a false one.

I think Trumps presidency did Putin a great disservice. It seduced Putin into a false sense of security. Cajoled Putin into going too far, overreach. Trumps gone and Russia cannot compete. A freight train of whoop ass is headed in its direction.

It’s others including the United States that have been annoyed by Putin’s aggressions as of late. I’m interested in seeing what direction we, along with our allies, takes with China as well. These are going to be interesting times.

When Japan bombed Perl Harbor a Japanese military lead said he fears they just awoke a sleeping giant. I say with all that’s happened and happening now the giant has again been awakened.

Their reality is meaningless and should be dismissed out of hand.
