"The liberal idea has become obsolete. Ö (Liberals) cannot simply dictate anything to anyone as they have been attempting to do over the recent decades."
Such was the confident claim of Vladimir Putin to the Financial Times on the eve of a G-20 gathering that appeared to validate his thesis.
Consider who commanded all the attention at the Osaka summit.
The main event was Trump's meeting with China's Xi Jinping and their agreement to renew trade talks. Xi runs an archipelago of detention camps where China's Uighur Muslims and its Kazakh minority have their minds coercively "corrected."
A major media focus at the summit was Trump's meeting with Putin where he playfully admonished the Russian president not to meddle again in our 2020 election. The two joked about how both are afflicted with a media that generates constant fake news.
[...]Why is liberalism failing? Several causes, said Putin. Among them, its failure to deal with the crisis of the age: mass and unchecked illegal migration. Putin praised Trumpís efforts to secure the U.S. border:
"This liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population. ... This liberal idea presupposes that ... migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants have to be protected."
