So, I finally get what Steve Bannon is doing. If you’re going to take control of the planet (at least the good parts), then everything makes sense. First and foremost, obviously, is to turn your biggest threat into your partner. Undeniably, an AmeriRusso Alliance would be the most formidable force in the history of the planet. After that, only China stands in the way. As their way of life pretty much can’t really be co-opted (they invented civilization in the first place) they need to be neutralized. China would be no match for the combined forces of the Alliance. Establishing the Alliance would probably only cost a few Baltic countries. And Ukraine. Maybe the Balkans. Strive for striking a global balance and a new world order.

Should be pretty straight-forward to get the Chinese to attack first. That’s not the real problem. The real problem is domestic. Liberal democracy is the best stepping stone to benign authoritarian rule. It just needs to be tweaked. Have to keep the core group of supporters happy and armed. Get them jobs (or the appearance of jobs) first and foremost. Keep them separate and antagonized, at first at a nearby but relatively harmless threat, one easily identifiable, say other-colored skin. Train them to think about overt defense (build a wall, fuel the already paranoid). Lay the groundwork for training them against the real threat - Truth, Justice and the American Way. Start with making the fourth estate the opposition party. Winnow down any minority rights through a set of appointments to the Cabinet. The real trick is going to be replacing the American Way with the AmeriRusso Way. That’s going to be the fun part, actually.

Europe, yeah, Europe. They’ll probably fall in line. Reach out and stoke the egos of those on the far right that have fascist tendencies. Meet with their leaders, marginalize the existing leaders of those countries. Augment the Russian programs of Kompromat and Dezinformatsiya covertly. They’re the experts. Maybe open some tunnels for them they didn’t know we had. Put together a program for denial, obfuscation, and conflation. Keep throwing stupid things out for the media to keep them occupied. Attack the entertainment industry.

I’m sure I’m missing a lot of details but feel like I’ve got the big picture. So, I’m only going to say this once. All you have to do is ask. Happy to help. Have some free time, obviously.
