On April 2, 1917 President Woodrow Wilson announced to the American people that the U.S. was going to enter the Great War (World War I) — “to exert all its power and employ all its resources to bring the Government of the German Empire to terms and end the war.”

In the same speech Wilson had this to say about the Russian Revolution (that had just broken out): “Does not every American feel that assurance has been added to our hope for the future peace of the world by the wonderful and heartening things that have been happening within the last few weeks in Russia?…The great, generous Russian people have been added in all their naive majesty and might to the forces that are fighting for freedom in the world, for justice, and for peace. Here is a fit partner for the League of Honor.”

Commentary: The American Revolution and the ‘self-governing’ that followed were viewed by Thomas Jefferson and others — to be born out of ‘nature’. Whereas, the Russian Revolution was seen by Leon Trotsky as a breaking of nature, in the hope of improving nature. The last hundred years have seen many leaders in the West (including Woodrow Wilson, Hillary Clinton and even Republicans) embracing Trotsky’s view. The results have been and will continue to be anarchy, followed by tyranny (especially networked tyranny).
